Mobile Photography Tutorial – Snapseed 2.0 – Learning Curve Not Dangerous

Share

For many iPhoneographers, Snapseed (by Google) is an integral part of their workflow. A few taps and swipes and their images get the adjustments and pop they need. Even digital artists can add sharpening or a pop of color in mere seconds with this free app. When an app is woven that tightly into their everyday work, it’s natural to look at a complete rewrite of the user interface with trepidation.

Luckily, Snapseed’s new version, 2.0, still works the same as it did. It looks totally different, without the large boxes that cut down the amount of workspace. But when it comes down to how you work the controls, nothing has changed.

Apple Bows To iPhone 6 Mobile Photography – World Gallery – TheAppWhisperer

Share

Apple has ‘quite rightly’ taken over their homepage with a new section entitled World Gallery. It’s a curation of images taken with either the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6+. This is a global selection and will in its entirety feature 77 photographers across 70 cities and 24 countries. From Sydney to Beijing to San Francisco to New York City to London and more, Apple will feature iPhone photographers and their work on posters at bus stops and train stations in newspapers and on billboards.

It’s pure delight and a testament to all that we do here at TheAppWhisperer.com that Apple are featuring the artists’ work in this campaign. This is what the iPhone 6/+ is about – creating art and it’s so good to see it portrayed like this as opposed to many images of the product itself. Big shout out to Apple.

To view the gallery in full, just go here.

Mobile Photography – A Picture’s Worth with Margherita Maniscalco

Share

A Picture’s Worth‘… is where we ask mobile photographers that have created powerful mobile photography/art to explain the processes they took. This includes their initial thoughts as to what they wanted to create, why they wanted to create it, how they created it, including all apps used and what they wanted to convey. We also ask these incredible artists to explain their emotions and how the image projects those feelings. We have published a few A Picture’s Worth articles recently, if you have missed those – please go here.

In this A Picture’s Worth today we asked Margherita Maniscalco to tell us more about her image “Sguardi gemelli”. Maniscalco has detailed her thoughts below, we think you’ll find this invaluable…

Mobile Art – Creative Tutorial with Wayman Stairs ‘Everyone Has Their Cross To Bear’

Share

We are hugely delighted to publish this absolutely fantastic creative mobile photography tutorial by Wayman Stairs, an amazing surreal mobile artist.  Stairs has provided a video tutorial as well as stills and text descriptions of each step. We are sure you will love this!  Over to you (foreword by Joanne Carter).

 

“In this video I will show the steps I took to create my image titled “Everyone Has their Cross to Bear”. All images were captured using my iPhone 5c and edited on my iPad 3, primarily with Art Studio.  Other apps used include iColorama and Glaze.  I use the photo transfer app to transfer images from my phone to my iPad because it does not lose the quality of the image and its easy to use.  All images are my own and I did not use a stylus for any of this, just lots of finger painting.  I am going to break this down by layer to hopefully simplify it.

Background Layer:

1.  Like many of my images, I start by creating a background.  So first thing I do is import (File/Import/Insert as a Layer/Import from Photos) a landscape image.  This one was previously blurred, but I did this using Art studio (AS) [Filters/Blur/Gaussian Blur] and set both the horizontal and vertical radius to the maximum setting and hit apply”.
