An email from an Artist…

Share

A few days ago I received the following email in my inbox and it filled me with much joy. I asked the artist if I may share it with you all because it’s good, positive news and hopefully will add further motivation to our much loved cause.

The email was from Rebecca Bruyn a mobile artist of much talent. This is what she said:

“Hi Joanne

I just wanted to share with you how much I appreciate your vision, and your commitment, your joy in sharing your educational resources and supporting our continued exploration of this unusual medium.

You’ve inspired me so much so that I am now teaching intro classes to small local groups in a variety of settings on Cape Cod.

This particular setting is in Chatham overlooking the ocean, a gorgeous place to hopefully inspire new artists!

I make share the students know about TheAppWhisperer before they leave. And share that great 9 minute video you presented at the 2015 Photography conference in England that garnered tremendous interest.

I feel very blessed.

Thank you

Rebecca”

Two new art suites of ice and snow are now being created in the year-round open ICEHOTEL, Sweden

Share

On December 15, the seasonal part of ICEHOTEL in Swedish Lapland opened. Thousands of overnight guests and day visitors and around 50 weddings later it is time for the seasonal suites to return to its source in Torne River. The year-round part of ICEHOTEL is still standing, and right now, two art suites of ice and snow are being created.

It’s dripping from the roof in the seasonal part of ICEHOTEL. The 35 rooms, hand-chiseled from ice and snow and the 80-meter long Main Hall and Ceremony Hall is now melting back into its source.

– This winter weather has been something extra. Sub-zero degrees from October until Easter and then switched to mild temperatures both days and nights. The quick changes in weather have kick-started the melting process and ICEHOTEL #28 is now melting back into Torne River, says Arne Bergh who is Creative Director at ICEHOTEL and has been following the ice art transforming into water again.

Mobile Photography – App of the Day Recrop (previously known as AntiCrop) by TouchRetouch Developers ADVA Soft

Share

We are delighted today to annouce our App of the Day Recrop. This is an updated app, which was previously known as AntiCrop) by the developers of the uber popular TouchRetouch app, ADVA Soft. ReCrop has become more composition orientated as opposed to AntiCrop. It gives the operator a second chance to reframe your original shots, post capturing – allowing you to crop, uncrop and straighten.

The update, is not just all that though, there’s also a newly improved algorithm, meaning this app is now even better at filling in the expanded areas based on the content surrounding it and works best with uniform backgrounds. Straightening is lossless, just as it was in the previous version.

In addition to that, you can flip and rotate photos, move the frame strictly along the axes, if needed and choose from multiple saving and sharing options.

There are also embedded inapp tutorials too in the dramatically redesigned interface, to help you further.

We have embedded a tutorial video within this post, for you to further understand what we have written here, see below.

And of course, you know our generousity knows no bounds to our dear readers, so we’re going to offer you a chance to receive a promotional code for this app. Firstly, you will need to post a comment, in the comments section of this post, on our website – not on our vast social media channels, we need them at TheAppWhisperer.com – so we can extract your email address in order to organise the giveaway.

One of the many things I love about curating, producing and publishing our Mobile Photography & Art Flickr Group Showcase is it offers me the facility to tap into these talented artists lives. Many of the artists that we profile each Sunday morning are extraordinarily prolific with their art and when viewing the showcase, each image doesn’t stand on its own, more so as together, context is all. The more you move among the pictures, shifting back and forrth, the more your sense of mobile photography and art deepens, expanding by the moment. All of these image take their part in a growing narrative, one we continue to explore. Enjoy!
