Mobile Photography – TrueView Interview – ‘The Decisive Moment’ with Deborah McMillion from the USA

Share

Our TrueView Interview section is an area where we ask one singular question, to mobile photographers and artists and it is captured to video. This time, I have asked mobile artists to consider their work within a story telling/narrative framework. My thoughts behind this, include an 18th century thesis, ‘Laocoon: An Essay on the Limits of Painting and Poetry‘, Gotthold Lessing argued that although painting could not communicate narrative in the sense of telling a story, it could imply drama by aspiring to capture the “pregnant moment”. In photography, this idea thrives as the “decisive moment” first introduced by Henri Cartier-Bresson and his followers. Therefore, my question to a mobile artist we hugely admire, Deborah McMillion  from the USA [with the above in mind], is “how you build your image to express or allude to some sort of story. Do you plot, or not? How do you define it? McMillion has created an incredibly powerful and artistic video, please enjoy!

Many artists are working on their videos right now and each video is as unique and individual as each artist. We are fully conscious and respectful that you are all capturing a part of yourself and sharing it with us and we love it. Thank you.

Share

As part of our new section, ‘App of the Day’, we want to ensure that you’re up to speed with the very best photography, art and videography apps, across all platforms. The Google Play store is now bursting with photography apps, that more often than not, are also available on iOS too. Days of fragmentation with the Android system are fading and the hardware is good too. The Photographer’s Ephemeris (TPE) is a brilliant app and one that’s available across iOS and Android platforms. The Photographer’s Ephemeris is a powerful application to help you plan outdoor photography in natural light, especially landscape and urban scenes. It is a map-centric sun and moon calculator: see how the light will fall on the land, day or night, for any location on earth.

It must be pointed out that the Android version of this app is not as rich as the iOS version and this is reflected in the price. However, this app is hugely popular across both platforms and that’s simply because it is an essential tool for anyone who needing access to this information.

Just updated, TPE 4.0 offers a number of new features, making use of the Augmented Reality using ARKit – not to be missed!

$8.99 – iTunes Store (iOS)

$2.99 – Google Play (Android)
