Mobile Photography StreetWise March 2017 Showcase

“Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still.” Dorothea Lange

Hello everyone!

Thank you all for submitting your images to our StreetWise Flickr group during the month of March.  All we can say is “wow!” What incredible images submitted to our group from around the world. It is such an honor to share the showcases with you.

Once again, our difficult challenge was to choose such few images for the showcase from all those that were submitted and we want you to know we appreciate each and every post.

As a reminder, we choose images for the showcase that are in keeping with our group’s intention and guidelines focusing on the key aspects of street photography  composition, timing, juxtaposition, catching the decisive moment  rather than relying too much on apping or images that are more art oriented or painterly.

If you are a mobile street photographer, please consider joining our growing community.

To those new to our street photography community, welcome – it is great to have you join us!

Mobile Photography – Now Available: The ExoLens Case for iPhone 7

Share

ExoLens has announced the retail availability of the ExoLens Case. This ultra-durable, dual layer case allows photographers and cinematographers to use the ExoLens PRO with Optics by ZEISS mobile photography lenses they love, while protecting their devices from drops and scratches while they shoot. Designed with high-end aesthetics and impact-resistant materials, the clear ExoLens Case serves as a low profile, highly protective solution designed to show off your iPhone, even without the lenses. The ExoLens Case is available for $49.95 at Exolens.com and select camera specialty stores globally.

Many of our customers use our mobile accessories to shoot beautiful images in adventurous locations, where drops and scratches are common. The availability of our new ExoLens Case means they can enjoy professional-grade mobile lenses, without the risk of damaging their phone,” says John Fellowes, Chief Executive Officer of Fellowes Brands. “We believe that protecting our customer’s phones while they shoot will give them the freedom to capture even more exciting imagery.

The ExoLens Case will allow users to easily switch between ExoLens PRO lenses with Optics by ZEISS, which are designed for professional photographers and journalists, as well as the prosumer photographer looking to create unique, and artistic snapshots. The clear case also provides protection for the iPhone 7, without hiding the aesthetic of the phone. The ExoLens Case is currently available for the iPhone 7, and will become available for the iPhone 7 Plus later this year.

Mobile Photography – Distressed FX App Updated and We Have Promotional Codes To Giveaway

Share

I am so proud of mobile artist Cheryl Tarrant, Distressed FX is her original idea, an iOS photo editing app that adds texture and atmosphere to pictures, giving them a dream-like quality. Popular on Instagram, with over 90,000 tagged photos, users have found it simple to turn any photo into a work of art.

With well over a million users, it has reached #1 in the App Store charts in 24 countries, and the #1 Photo and Video app in in 43 countries

Tarrant, who lives in the countryside in Tennessee, USA along with her many pets (including peacocks and chickens!), is a texture artist who has made a living selling her painterly textures to fellow digital artists. This exploded once she decided to create an app, enabling many more people to create art using only their mobile phone.

A casual online conversation with a friend resulted in a simple-to-use app that people of all ages and genders love to use. Developer Steve Liddell, who lives in the UK, said, “I wanted to keep the app true to Cheryl’s artistic vision. It really is her work shining through rather than the technology – and that’s what makes it unique in the App Store.”

We have been given some promotional codes to giveaway to our readers, would you like one? If so, please join our Twitter followers here and like us on Facebook here and post a comment to this post (so we can obtain your email address) and hopefully, we will then be able to send you a code. All winners are selected at random.

Full Day Of iPhoneography Workshops For $99

Share

Join three experienced and frequently exhibited iPhoneography teachers at the Los Angeles Festival of Photography on April 22, 2017 for a full day of workshops for just $99! All three were featured in the book The Art of iPhone Photography from Rocky Nook Books (Bob and Nicki were the co-authors, and David Ingraham was another contributor):

  • Nicki Fitz-Gerald: Life in Layers – Creative iPhone Artistry: Join UK photo artist Nicki as she walks us through her world, pushing the limits of how we see through the lens of an iPhone; literally painting with light, creating impressionist photo paintings, the results of which are often cut up and combined with photos of marks, patterns, textures, shapes and text (all captured on the iPhone) to create her more abstract and expressive collage works.
  • David Ingraham: The iPhone Darkroom: Join photographer David Ingraham as he demonstrates how to apply simple-yet-effective darkroom techniques using only a handful of iPhone apps to achieve tonally-rich, tactile, ready-to-print black-and-white images, all from the palm of your hand.
  • Bob Weil: Creating Conceptual Art on Mobile Devices: Join Bob for a deep dive into one man’s creative process, and discover some of the tools and techniques you’ll need to harness your own creative muse and produce work that represents your own personal view and aesthetic vision.
