Welcome to TheAppWhisperer’s new section, “what apps are we using this month” series, where we discover which apps you are particularly enjoying. Kicking us off today is non-other than Award Winning Mobile Artist, Paul-André Hamel.
I live in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Retired from a local government, I really started working with an iPhone in 2016. Today, I use an Phone 13 Pro and an iPad Pro for editing. Like many others, I only use photos taken with my phone that I transform to create an atmosphere, awaken an emotion, or simply tell a story. And that’s what makes this job so exciting.
I use several applications but the most common are: SlowShutter for creating silhouettes and sometimes landscapes, SuperimposeX for integrating characters, iColorama, DistressedFX+ and Reflect for transforming landscapes, and TouchRetouch for the final touch up.
Here, the landscape was created with SlowShutter and transformed using iColorama and DistressedFX+. The character, photographed on the street with Slowshutter, was added in with SuperimposeX and touched up with TouchRetouch.
My characters are usually photographed either on the street or in a museum. Here, the man is looking at a painting at an exhibition. First, I created a landscape with Decim8 and reworked with Distressedfx+. Then, I integrated the silhouette into the landscape with SuperimposeX. I used Formulas to create a dreamlike blur. And finally, I reworked it with TouchRetouch.
The last picture was taken at an exhibition. I completely transformed the scene using iColorama. The red rectangle was integrated with SuperimposeX and some edits has been made with TouchRetouch.
