Assignment – ‘Melancholy’ – Result and Third Essay with Peter Wilkin – @ for our forthcoming book – Away with Words

Share

With two chapters behind us, our third chapter begins to take shape for our forthcoming book ‘Away with Words’, this will be published early next year.

Our ‘assignment’ for this chapter was ‘Melancholy’ and we have selected Peter Wilkin’s image from the selection we were sent, as we feel it epitomises this subject, for our third of twelve 1000 word essays, personally written by myself.

This non fiction work merges discursive scholarship with what may be construed as personal flights of fancy. That is not to say it will disappoint, moreover I have given myself a far and wide range to delve into photography, literature, art, theory, design and music as I tease out my own offbeat associations and at the same time astutely tune into each mobile photographers key tropes and artfully deconstruct their imagery. I thus begin:

‘How I Did It’™ with Rad Drew – Using the iPhone Portrait Mode and SnapSeed Portrait Editor

Share

It’s great to be back with another How I Did It!™ video tutorial for TheAppWhisperer community! This video explores the 1-2 knockout combination of the iPhone’s Portrait Mode with SnapSeed’s Portrait editor tool.

This video focuses on editing images taken with the dual lens iPhones. In this case the portraits were made with the iPhone XS Max, but any of the dual lens iPhones from the 7 Plus to the X can be used. In fact, you can use SnapSeed’s Portrait editor on any portrait, not just those taken with dual lens cameras. In this video, editing occurs in both the iPhone photo editor, and in SnapSeed’s Portrait Editing tool.

Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year 2019

Share

Last night, if you were following my antics on Facebook, you would’ve noticed that I spent it at the Mall Galleries, The Mall, London, SW1, uber chic. The occasion was The Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year 2019 Awards. I was on the Advisory Panel and TheAppWhisperer was a Media Partner. It was a fabulous feeling to view our logo and bio on the walls.

The overall winner of was a magnificent image entitled ‘Cauldron Noodles’, of a celebration of the goddess Nuwa, taken by Chinese photographer Jianhui Liao.

Liao was presented with the £5000 prize by Andy Macdonald, who has headed up Pink Lady® in the UK, headline sponsor of the Awards. The announcement took place in front of an audience of four hundred guests at a glittering Champagne Taittinger reception packed with celebrities from the food and photography world, at the Mall Galleries, London on Tuesday 30 April 2019. Host for the evening was the legendary musician and cheesemaker Alex James.

The competition was fierce“, said Macdonald, “there were 9000 images entered from 77 countries“ more entries and more countries than ever before – and the standard was phenomenal“.

Jianhui’s shot won the Food for Celebration category sponsored by Champagne Taittinger. “It stood out from the rest in its category, however, for the way in which he made the subject matter, a community feast, so beautiful and atmospheric“.

Andy Macdonald, shortly to stand down as head of Pink Lady® in the UK, was also presented with the Outstanding Achievement Award, in recognition of his great contribution to the world of food photography, as headline sponsor from the Awards™ inception in 2011.

The global judging panel this year, chaired by internationally-renowned food photographer David Loftus, included Claire Hyman, British Photography – The Hyman Collection, culinary superstar Alice Waters, Lucy Pike, Head of Pictures, WeTransfer, His Excellency Ali Bin Thalith, Secretary General, HIPA and of course, I was on the Advisory Panel to the Jury.

This exhibition is available to view to the public at The Mall Galleries from today until 5 May 2019. Admission is free.

‘How I Did It’™ with Rad Drew ‘Sculpting Light with Dramatic Black and White”

Share

Hello, to TheAppWhisperer Community! Thank you for allowing me to share another How I Did It!™ video, this one on the favorite app, Dramatic Black and White.

Dramatic Black and White, by Jixi Pix Software, runs on both iPhone and Android, and transforms color images into Black and White with tools that manage the tone, softness, brightness, and contrast of the image. It’s great for architecture as well as portraits and landscapes, and provides creatives with a great deal of control in determining the final look of the image. (For information on other apps for creating Black and White images, see my blog post, Creating Black and White Images with Your Phone
