Mobile Photography Tutorial – Diana – When a Little Mix-Up is a Good Thing

Share

We are delighted to publish Jerry Jobe’s latest mobile photography/art tutorial for our reading and viewing pleasure. This week Jobe takes a look at the mobile photography app, Diana. Read his thoughts as he puts it through its paces (foreword by Joanne Carter).

Diana is a free app and you can download it here

“If you have ever spent any time cooking, you should know the feeling of getting to the point in the recipe when you should be adding an ingredient you were certain you had, but it’s not there. “No sage! Coriander? Rosemary? Whatever!” Sometimes the result is wonderful, sometimes it’s not – but it’s never quite what you expect.

Diana is an app that randomly picks two images from your Camera Roll and slams them together. It can also apply one of the 40 available filters at random, or allow you to choose. The results can be wonderful, or a mess. But, just as with happy mistakes in cooking, the results can inspire you to try new techniques, new combinations of images. If nothing else, Diana can serve to stir your creative juices.

The reason I use the phrase “if nothing else” is that Diana is an app that does not give the user the level of control necessary to tweak the results of the mix. It can be a frustrating app in that way. But if you have some time to spend with it, it can be worthwhile. Sometimes I can try a dozen or two random combinations, and not come up with something useable – but I leave the session with several ideas. That’s gotta be good – right?

The splash screen for Diana is a silhouette. The developers of Diana stress how well silhouettes work with their app. They certainly do work well. Unfortunately, I don’t have a lot of silhouettes on my Camera Roll (probably under .05 percent), so you won’t be seeing any in this tutorial. I will show you where you can see some examples of Diana’s use of silhouettes, however”.
