New! Mobile Photography – App Of The Day – ProCamera – New Release and We Have Promotional Codes to Share!

Share

As far as camera replacement apps go, ProCamera should definitely be on your shortlist, if not already on your device. Entering a new era: ProCamera’s first iOS 11 release is all about “high efficiency” and embracing the future. ProCamera now fully supports the HEVC compression standard for videos and also for photos in the form of HEIF files. The new photo file format gives you even better image quality at nearly half the size of a JPEG file. In other words, you can store almost twice as many photos on your device at an even higher quality level! HEIF photo files taken with your iPhone show the file suffix .heic.

In ProCamera, there are two ways to switch file formats:

a) Settings > File Format

b) Open Control Panel (three lines icon) > Toggle “Format” icon

Via Settings > File format, you can also choose your preferred quality level (compression), which is a determining factor for the final file size. For HEIF files, a quality setting of 100% indicates a lossless compression. The HEVC compression for HEIF files is a lot more efficient than JPEG compression and creates less artifacts. This means even lower quality settings will create files of decent quality at very small file sizes.

HEIF is available for all iOS 11 devices with an A10 or A11 Fusion chip (iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and later).

Read about all the other new features below. ProCamera retails for $/£4.99 but we have been given some promotional codes to share with our readers. Would you like one?

Mobile Photography – A Picture’s Worth with Caroline MacMoran – TheAppWhisperer

Share

A Picture’s Worth‘… is where we ask mobile photographers that have created powerful mobile photography/art to explain the processes they took. This includes their initial thoughts as to what they wanted to create, why they wanted to create it, how they created it, including all apps used and what they wanted to convey. We also ask these incredible artists to explain their emotions and how the image projects those feelings. We have published a few A Picture’s Worth articles recently, if you have missed those – please go here.

In this A Picture’s Worth today we asked Caroline MacMoran to tell us more about her wonderful image ‘Caught in Between’. Caroline has explained eloquently all we wanted to know. We think you will enjoy this very much.

If you would like to contribute to this section or if you have seen an image that you would like to learn more about, just email Joanne@theappwhisperer.com and we will get it all set up). Foreword by Joanne Carter (over to you Caroline).

 

“Having just returned from a workshop in San Miguel de Allende, led by the immensely talented and creative Karen Divine, I was feeling out-of-sorts. Somewhat anxious, somewhat excited, and full of the need and desire to create, I just started working. While in Mexico, Karen suggested to try and create composite images that only included shots from our time there so I wanted to continue with this challenge. This image, Caught in Between, is a composite of three basic images shot during the workshop–not including the background/texture.

We were fortunate enough to have two afternoons of model shoots in incredible locations, and the arms and head, as well as the feet, are from two models during these shoots. The red dress was from my first day in San Miguel, before the workshop started, as we walked through the city and the markets.

Occasionally I’ll have a specific idea that I want to try and bring into being, but more often than not I start working with no real plan. This was the case with Caught in Between. I started placing images on my background, with one quiet whisper in my head; “keep it minimal”. This was unusual for me, as I often end up with many images and parts in a composite piece because I like the way the pieces interact and blend. Trying to understand this thought in hindsight, it made sense given my feeling state.

I had arrived home from San Miguel feeling so alive from the recent opportunity of a week devoted to pure creating, friendships, time alone, and travel to a beautiful town full of visual treats. Quickly, however, I fell into the hole of laundry, food shopping, work, and house chores. I longed to be back in a place where I could feel that sense of creative freedom, but felt caught between that longing and my place of comfort–my family and my home. I needed to just focus on pure images, simple creations that could slow me down and help me feel grounded in the place I am now. But I also wanted my place now to include more of what I experienced while away.

Caught in Between, though unaware of this representation as I composed it, is an image which speaks to my various longings. The red dress straight ahead, the arms and head thrown back in a dance, and the feet firmly planted (though tilting forward) are my way of understanding, of attempting to bring me back to a place of home, and to a new challenge. 

Thanks to Joanne for her interest in my work and for inviting me to express my thoughts. The image, Caught in Between, was created with Hipstamatic, ProCamera, Leonardo and Snapseed.
