Mobile Photography & Art – Portrait of an Artist – Seeing Through The Eyes of Catherine Caddigan

Share

We are delighted to bring to you the fourth of this years series of interviews and the sixteenth of this fascinating series, within our Portrait of an Artist column entitled “Seeing through the eyes”. This is a section that has been created by our wonderful Portrait of an Artist Editor, Ile Mont. Mont has been inspired by the life and works of Carolyn Hall Young, as so many of us have. Young was the main contributor to our Portrait of an Artist Flickr pool and filled it with portraits of so many wonderful people, not only of herself. It is for this reason that Mont wanted to create this section, to enable us to view the artists style through their own eyes. At the end of each interview, Mont will keep Young’s tradition alive, with a portrait of herself, seen through the eyes of the artist. In this case, you will see that at the end of this interview there are portraits of Mont, seen through the eyes of Catherine Caddigan, what a gift!

Please continue to post your mobile portraiture to our dedicated Flickr group or use this hashtag on Instagram #tawportraitofanartist, this way, Mont will search through these artists first to interview. (Foreword by Joanne Carter).

DistressedFX+: a surprisingly worthwhile upgrade

Share

Five years ago I wrote a tutorial on DistressedFX, a texture app to go alongside Stackable’s and Mextures in my library of apps. I couldn’t help but compare it to those giants in texture apps, and although I loved the textures, I found the interface clunky without the versatility of Stackable’s or Mextures.

In the intervening years DistressedFX has soldiered on, occasionally releasing new texture packs. But we have recently discovered that Stackable’s has ceased updates, and it is only a matter of time before that app crashes and burns. So I have revisited DistressedFX over the last few weeks, buying several packs that I had bypassed earlier.

So, having spent money on the app, what should happen except a new version of DistressedFX – one that is not upwardly compatible? DistressedFX+ costs a relatively steep $/£9.99, but it does include all present and future packs. Is it worth it?

I’ve got to admit, I initially thought that DistressedFX+ would be going to a subscription model, which would make it a definite “NO” for me. I have too many apps that will do everything I need that I don’t have to pay additional charges every month. But I was pleasantly surprised to see that not only are all packs included, but significant changes to the clunky interface have been made – enough to make me glad to support the developer with the additional upfront price. A developer has to eat, after all. I’m glad to pay for additional value.

So the new version has a colourful new splash screen.

Mobile Photography / Art Tutorial – Manipulating Sort in iColorama with Jerry Jobe

Share

We are so delighted to publish Jerry Jobe’s latest mobile photography/art tutorial for our reading and viewing pleasure.  Read Jobe’s thoughts about manipulating Sort in the hugely popular iOS app, iColorama. Take it away Jerry…..

(foreword by Joanne Carter)

“It’s been a while since I’ve covered any new features in iColorama, the premier mobile art app. The feature I will cover today, Form>Sort, was added a few years ago, and has been used repeatedly in brilliant works by many mobile artists. There aren’t a lot of modifications to the effect that can be accomplished in the Sort command itself, but I’ve discovered that you can make subtler, beautiful effects by modifying the image before applying sort, and I’d like to show you how to do that”.

My first image here used Sort on the background, and I added the flower, dog, and painted elements after.

Weekend of Mobile Photography with Sukru Mehmet Omur from Turkey

Share

This weekend Sukru Mehmet Omur, an Award Winning Mobile Photographer chronicles his enviable journey with us. Upon viewing Omur’s text and images, the renderings of human emotions seamlessly weave into a graphic perspective. Personally, I sense happiness in Omur’s work and thus it allowed me to recall Henri Matisse’s manifest for happiness, that he created in the early years of the 20th century. Matisse was affluent so in 1905 he was bold enough to flaunt his happiness. He was ridiculed by Picasso and others for his ‘happy art’ but he stuck to his guns. Omur much like Matisse knows that happiness is a human right and he speaks up for it exquisitely.
