Mobile Photography and Art – A Picture’s Worth with Carol Wiebe from Ontario, Canada

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 Carol Wiebe to tell us more about her image featured here, ‘Casting Light’. This is a significant act because the more Wiebe thought about the image she had created, the more she realised that she was portraying a deep trauma. I am very proud of her for producing this art and for writing about it. Art therapy is a powerful force. Wiebe hoped that by ‘coming out’ in this way (as she described it to me), that she may be able to help others…

Mobile Art – ‪A Stream of Consciousness – iColorama and Procreate‬ – by Carolyn Hall Young

Share

A Stream of Consciousness in literature means to emulate the passage of thought through your mind without any inhibitors.The idea being that deeper patterns of order develop and emerge. Virgina Woolf used the stream of conciousness technique significantly in her work. In her novel, Mrs Dalloway, Woolf’s aim was to give readers the impression of being inside the mind of the character – an internal view, illuminating the plot. Carolyn Hall Young has created this mobile art portrait using the same technique but in artform. As this video plays you will see how Young’s fragmentary and impressionistic responses flow through the portrait. What is fascinating to me is the complex evocation of the inner states of Young’s consciousness, a subliminal level renders the flow of a myriad of impressions. I imagine her feeling a sense of calm and connectedness with the world around her as she paints.

Enjoy!

Adobe’s PaintCan: A Nifty Addition to Beginner Paint Apps

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 Adobe’s PaintCan app. Read his thoughts as he puts it through its paces (foreword by Joanne Carter). Take it away Jerry…

PaintCan is free and you can download it here

“Painting apps can take several different forms. There are the auto-painting apps, that apply the brush to the canvas in a specific, software-driven way. Glaze, Brushstroke and the AutoPainter series are among the auto-painting apps I’ve covered. There are those that allow you to “trace” photos, but the user completely controls the brush strokes and they can even paint completely from scratch. Procreate, ArtRage, Sketch Club, and the Brush menu in iColorama fall into this user-intensive group.

There’s a third group of painting apps which I’d call “software-assisted”. These apps do not allow for painting from scratch like user-intensive apps, but require users to touch the screen and make strokes (unlike the fully automatic apps). Mobile Monet, Photo Viva, Foolproof and today’s app, PaintCan, fall into this third category. These software-assisted apps fall into that middle ground between fully user-controlled and fully automatic. They give you more control over the result than a fully-automatic app, which can help your “eye”: the decisions you make about form and details. At the same time, they help with the brush strokes so that you aren’t immediately frustrated with lack of drawing skills.

PaintCan is an Adobe app. To me, that means it’s pretty solid, and has a team of developers that will back it up as long as the company maintains interest in it. Of course, the flip side is that you don’t have a single developer with the passion to keep it going, either”.
