Mobile Photography / Art Tutorial with 100 Cameras in 1: Making a Game of it

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 100 Cameras in 1 by Stuck in Customs. Read Jobe’s thoughts about this app as he puts it through its paces (foreword by Joanne Carter). Take it away Jerry…

"Photography and mobile art are fun pursuits. They can be all-encompassing, or a hobby that helps you pass the time in your down moments. Games can do the same. However, I find it strange that some would consider mobile photography and art a game. This is one of the quirky aspects of 100 Cameras in 1, a texturing app from Trey Ratcliff.

Ratcliff, on his website Stuck in Customs, offers several paid online courses in photography, including one that parallels his book on HDR. (I have not watched any of the free tutorials nor enrolled in any of the courses; that is not what I cover here.) His emphasis on HDR is surprising, considering that his app is a texturing app, like Stackables, Mextures, Photo Copier or Distressed FX.

100 Cameras in 1 is also odd in its connection to Game Center. As you use it, pop-ups tell you that you’ve earned a point for this and that, like saving a picture, accessing a menu item, and using particular filters. I, quite frankly, can’t be bothered with all that. The points seem to be their own reward, for you to “compare with friends”, and I can’t think of a greater waste of my time.

The bottom line, for me, is how useful the looks achieved though using the app are to me, and how easily I can achieve them. So let’s take a look".
