‘Brought to Light’ – Mobile Photography / Art Interview with Petyr Campos

Share

Mobile Photography itself has become the most ubiquitous and democratic medium of all. It races on and each new gallery is trying to keep up. Petyr Campos’ ability to invest in this medium meets his quest and desire to produce intense radiance within his images, that stand out. Campos’ photographs are taken with confidence, the images themselves are fascinating. Each shot is beautifully composed and lit. Ruthlessly honest, these images represent a complex man and remarkable artist.

This is our new interview section for mobile photographers and mobile artists and we hope to be filling it very soon with vast explosions of thought and imagery. These questions are designed to explore the artist behind the work, to get to know them a little more intimately.

We recently published our first ‘Brought to Light’ Interview with Andrea Bigiarini, Founder of the New Era Museum and FIPA Florence International Photography Awards as well as writer, author, Imagineer and digital artist, if you missed that, please go here.

Instagram Curating Videos About Live Events

Share

Fortune magazine reports that Instagram has begun to curate video content of live events, for example, sports events and award shows.

The Golden Globe Award Show on Sunday was where it started. Viewers can access the special streams of video via the Explore section of the Instagram app, where a banner with the name of the event is positioned at the top of the section.

Seems Instagram do not want to be left behind by the likes of Snapchat with their Live Story feature and Twitter with their ‘Moments’.

Instagram Increases Image Resolution

Share

Instagram’s image resolution has been stuck on 640 x 640 for a long time but following the recent upgrade to the app, Instagram has now started storing higher resolution images  – 1080 x 1080 on its servers.

This update is welcome but not particularly revolutionary. Flickr and Google photos offer the better solution for artists wanting to store images at high resolution online.

Mike Krieger, co-founder of Instagram, announced via Twitter, yesterday the roll-out to both iOS and Android versions of the app.

(Many thanks to Ile Mont, for the tip).

Mobile Photography – A Picture’s Worth with Luis Rodriquez / Lrh Arquitecto – 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 Luis Rodriquez (@luisonrh)/Lrh Arquitecto to explain more about his wonderful capture ‘A Real Smiling Beauty’ – Luis 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 Luis).

 

“When I started being a mobile photography, I did not care much about “street photography”. As an architect, I was more interested in capturing Madrid, the city I live in, and its streets. I loved, and still do, to watch the world through its images reflected on different surfaces: buildings’ glass façades, buses’ and car’s windows and on the water of puddles.

But little by little, as I daily started to watch hundreds of pics, my interest for “street photography” grew, and I can now say that it is my main interest as a mobile photographer. My eye has became very sharp and pays attention to what goes around me when I stroll the streets. I always walk around holding my iPhone in my hand, unblocked, ready to shoot.

When I shoot “street photography”, I normally use the Hisptamatic app. I love it, even though I would like it to use the 4:3 format instead of the 1:1. The pics I shoot in the street are always in black and white. I normally use the combo Jane + BlacKeys SuperGrain, but I have recently discovered that the combo Tynto1884 + CType Plate is also great. And I have discovered it by chance, when after a shooting session with my daughters, I forgot to change to Jane + BKS and started shooting pics with it. I loved the tones and colors so much, that I’m now using both. Apart from that, the result is always a surprise, because you never know what parts of the photograph will be in focus, and which ones out of focus.

So, when I was on my way to fetch my daughters at school and passed by this green grocers shop and saw this beautiful woman buying some fruit and smiling at the seller, I did not hesitate and shot. I loved what I saw from outside the shop: the beautiful woman, the grapes, and the reflection of the buildings on the glass. The result was a beautiful composition, in which the woman was in focus, the grapes a little out of it, and the reflection of the buildings in front totally out of focus, which helps the observer not to get distracted from the main goal of the photo, the woman.

The only edit I did to the pic was to crop the frame with Snapseed. Colors and tones are the result of using the combo I mentioned above, and the goal was perfectly achieved, and that was to show the beautiful smile of this woman as I watched her form outside”.
