Mobile Photography / Art Tutorial with 100 Cameras in 1: Making a Game of it

Share

We are delighted to publish Jerry Jobe’s latest mobile photography/art tutorial for our reading and viewing pleasure. This time Jobe takes a look at the app 100 Cameras in 1 by Stuck in Customs. Read Jobe’s thoughts about this app as he puts it through its paces (foreword by Joanne Carter). Take it away Jerry…

Stuck in Customs is free and you can download it here

"Photography and mobile art are fun pursuits. They can be all-encompassing, or a hobby that helps you pass the time in your down moments. Games can do the same. However, I find it strange that some would consider mobile photography and art a game. This is one of the quirky aspects of 100 Cameras in 1, a texturing app from Trey Ratcliff.

Ratcliff, on his website Stuck in Customs, offers several paid online courses in photography, including one that parallels his book on HDR. (I have not watched any of the free tutorials nor enrolled in any of the courses; that is not what I cover here.) His emphasis on HDR is surprising, considering that his app is a texturing app, like Stackables, Mextures, Photo Copier or Distressed FX.

100 Cameras in 1 is also odd in its connection to Game Center. As you use it, pop-ups tell you that you’ve earned a point for this and that, like saving a picture, accessing a menu item, and using particular filters. I, quite frankly, can’t be bothered with all that. The points seem to be their own reward, for you to “compare with friends”, and I can’t think of a greater waste of my time.

The bottom line, for me, is how useful the looks achieved though using the app are to me, and how easily I can achieve them. So let’s take a look".

Mobile Photography / Art – Saturday Poetry – “Hope’ ‘is the thing with Feathers’

Share

This weeks Saturday Poetry, matched with mobile photography/art is a poem entitled “Hope” ‘is the thing with feathers’ by one of America’s greatest and most original poets of all time, Emily Dickinson.

“As with many of her poems, Emily Dickinson takes an abstract feeling or idea – in this case, hope – and likens it to something physical, visible, and tangible – here, a singing bird. Hope, for Dickinson, sings its wordless tune and never stops singing it: nothing can faze it. In other words (as it were), hope does not communicate by ‘speaking’ to us in a conventional sense: it is a feeling that we get, not always a rational one, that cheers us even in dark times of despair. Indeed, hope is sweetest of all when the ‘Gale’ is busy raging: during turbulent or troubled times, hope is there for us. And hope can withstand just about anything: even in times of cold comfort (‘the chillest land’) or in foreign or unfamiliar climes (‘on the strangest Sea’), hope remains. And hope never asks for anything from us in return. It provides comfort and solace but does not require anything back”. source: InterestingLiterature

Today, I am matching the mobile artwork by @tankaqueen – Alexis Rotella to this poem. You can follow her on Instagram here @tankaqueen

Mobile Photography / Art Tutorial with Simply HDR by JixiPix Software

Share

We are delighted to publish Jerry Jobe’s latest mobile photography/art tutorial for our reading and viewing pleasure. This time Jobe takes a look at the app Simply HDR by JixiPix Software. Read Jobe’s thoughts about this app as he puts it through its paces (foreword by Joanne Carter). Take it away Jerry…

“Everyone is disappointed, when they first start taking photos, with the results they get in tricky lighting situations. You’re in a lovely cottage with a spectacular view of the country out the window. You can see the details in the drapes and the fluffy clouds. When you look at the photo, after taking great care with the exposure, you see a washed-out sky in a black rectangle. The reason? Your eye is able to capture much more of the “dynamic range” of the scene – the shadows and highlights – than any camera sensor can.

HDR is a photographic technique that usually uses three or more exposures (images) to capture all of the dynamic range that your eye sees – sees without any effort on your part. These multiple images are then merged together so that you have properly-exposed highlights, midtones and shadows. I covered two camera apps that use this merger technique back in February 2013.

Other apps, rather than needing multiple exposures, will try to improve the overall exposure of a single image. Snapseed and iColorama have HDR components, and many other photo suites do as well. JixiPix has a stand-alone single-image HDR app called Simply HDR”.

Simply HDR retails for $1.99/£1.49 and you can download it here.
