Phocus Mobile – Updated

Phocus Mobile is an extension of the professional Phocus by Hasselblad image processing software. Phocus by Hasselblad provides photographers with a processing toolbox that enables you to get the most from the world’s largest raw image files. Phocus Mobile connects wirelessly to either a Mac or Windows computer running Phocus and allows you to remotely browse, rate, pan and zoom your high resolution RAW, JPEG and TIFF images. Perfect for working with clients in the studio since each person can review images on an iOS device rather than gathering around a single computer.

Phocus Mobile also allows you to remotely operate and trigger a tethered Hasselblad camera, providing control of exposure mode, f/stop, shutter speed, ISO, metering mode and other important capture parameters – all neatly presented on a virtual camera display. Remote controlling the camera is particularly useful when the camera is located in a difficult-to-access position.

Joanne Carter, creator of the world’s most popular mobile photography and art website—— TheAppWhisperer platform has been a pivotal cyberspace for mobile artists of all abilities to learn about, to explore, to celebrate and to share mobile artworks. Joanne’s compassion, inclusivity, and humility are hallmarks in all that she does, and is particularly evident in the platform she has built. In her words, “We all have the potential to remove ourselves from the centre of any circle and to expand a sphere of compassion outward; to include everyone interested in mobile art, ensuring every artist is within reach”, she has said. Promotion of mobile artists and the art form as a primary medium in today’s art world, has become her life’s focus. She has presented lectures bolstering mobile artists and their art from as far away as the Museum of Art in Seoul, South Korea to closer to her home in the UK at Focus on Imaging. Her experience as a jurist for mobile art competitions includes: Portugal, Canada, US, S Korea, UK and Italy. And her travels pioneering the breadth of mobile art includes key events in: Frankfurt, Naples, Amalfi Coast, Paris, Brazil, London. Pioneering the world’s first mobile art online gallery - has extended her reach even further, shipping from London, UK to clients in the US, Europe and The Far East to a global group of collectors looking for exclusive art to hang in their homes and offices. The online gallery specialises in prints for discerning collectors of unique, previously unseen signed limited edition art. Her journey towards becoming The App Whisperer, includes (but is not limited to) working for a paparazzi photo agency for several years and as a deputy editor for a photo print magazine. Her own freelance photographic journalistic work is also widely acclaimed. She has been published extensively both within the UK and the US in national and international titles. These include The Times, The Sunday Times, The Guardian, Popular Photography & Imaging, dpreview, NikonPro, Which? and more recently with the BBC as a Contributor, Columnist at Vogue Italia and Contributing Editor at LensCulture. Her professional photography has also been widely exhibited throughout Europe, including Italy, Portugal and the UK.
