Mobile Photography / Art – Three Years of Tutorials: A Recap, an Assembly Feature, and an iColorama Procedural

Share

Huge thanks to Jerry Jobe on his Mobile Photography / Art Tutorial Third Year Writing Anniversary. We have loved and enjoyed every single one of Jobe’s tutorials and we know that you do too.  This week, Jobe does something a little different, take a look…(foreword by Joanne Carter).

“On November 7, 2012, I published my first tutorial on Hipstamatic. As usual, on my anniversary, I like to take a look back. But there’s more to this article than a walk down memory lane. There’s a feature currently in beta for Assembly that I’d like to show you, and an iColorama procedural on how to create a multicolored water color painting like this one. So let’s get started!”

Mobile Photography/Art – Apple Default/Native Camera Most Used For Initial Image Capture

Share

Through our APPart Column, edited by Bobbi McMurry, we raised the question ‘do you use the default/native camera in your iPhone or a dedicated photo app to capture your initial images?’.  It proved a popular question and our editor for this section Bobbi McMurry has created a pie chart clearly demonstrating the Apple default camera as being the most popular choice with 31%.  This was followed by 14% Other* (see below), Hipstamatic with 13%, with Camera+ and ProCamera at 12%, 645 PRO Mk III and Oggl both achieved 6% and Slow Shutter and Provoke with 3%. Please take a look at the chart below…and please let us know your thoughts, which app do you use for initial image capture with your iPhone?

Mobile Photography App Tutorial – Oggl – A Love/Hate Relationship – TheAppWhisperer

Share

Back in November of 2012 I wrote my first article on iPhoneography apps. It was an attempt to cover Hipstamatic. I chose Hipstamatic because the app sparked my interest in iPhone photography. The fact that I was getting wonderful results, blindly, was fascinating. You couldn’t see, through the viewfinder, what the resulting image would look like. I found myself taking many photos just to see what they would look like.

That is both a blessing and a curse of Hipstamatic. It was terrific for me, who was just starting out and had a number of friends asking how I got those results. For those who were more studied in their approach (as I have now become), it is frustrating. Many people all over the world asked Hipstamatic to allow them to choose the filter afterwards. As it turns out, that capability was never (and most likely, will never be) added to Hipstamatic. Instead, another app was created to allow for post-capture addition of Hipstamatic lenses and films – Oggl.

The trouble is that Hipstamatic wasn’t content to leave it at just making the filters a post-processing alternative. They decided to create a new social photograph network like Instagram at the same time, and also improve their revenue stream by eliminating free “Hipstapaks” from the Hipstamatic app and charging a subscription for Oggl. New monthly Hipstapaks are free under the subscription in Oggl, but cost a dollar in Hipstamatic. On the other hand, you can’t buy them in Hipstamatic and use them in Oggl without paying for the subscription. So in order to get the full benefit in both apps, you have to pay twice – a dollar a month in Hipstamatic and a ten-dollar yearly subscription in Oggl. Definitely not cool.

And yet I pay for it (at the moment). Why? Because I still like the look of my images processed through those lenses and films. Because I still get a little bit of the “ooh, look at that!” feeling when I take shots in Hipstamatic or process them in Oggl. Because I hold out a slim hope that they will come to their senses and stop gouging their customers.

Let’s take a look at the somewhat convoluted interface of Oggl. The first thing you’ll see is the Home page. The Home page plays up the “social networking” portion of the app, with “feeds” of the people you follow as well as your Instagram feed and various promotional feeds.
