Mobile Photography/Art Tutorial – ‘Polarr Photo Editor’ – Part 1 – Finding a Niche

Share

We are delighted to publish Jerry Jobe’s latest mobile photography/art tutorial for our reading and viewing pleasure. This week Jobe takes a look at the app Polarr Photo Editor. This is Part 1 of a 2 part series. Read his thoughts as he puts it through its paces (foreword by Joanne Carter).

Polarr Photo Editor is free and download it here

"The iOS mobile photo app market is getting crowded as it matures. There are only so many things that people are wanting or needing to do with their photos. Developers who want to enter the market in a big way have to give users a new function, or rework the way more traditional functions are done.

This is especially difficult with a new basic photo editor. Given that thousands of apps out there will do Brightness, Contrast, Temperature, Sharpening, Exposure, and even Curves, how can you possibly give the user added value over the existing monsters like Snapseed, Filterstorm Neue and others?

Polarr is a new basic editor that seeks to become your app of choice, but does it offer enough to catch the loyalty of users? Let’s take a look and find out."

Sony Collaborates with Street Artists to Bring to Life the Low Light Photography capabilities of the Xperia Z3 Smartphone

Share

This weekend saw the first of five ultra violet art murals appear across London as part of a collaboration between Sony Mobile and a series of street artists including Dan Kitchener, to bring to life the low light photography capabilities of its Xperia Z3 smartphone.

Thanks to the superiority of the Xperia Z3, and its ability to capture crisp images in low light situations, Sony has teamed up with a series artists including, Zina, Oliver Switch and Replete to create a collection of exclusive works that come alive at night.  Brought to life by ultra violet lights, the murals offer passers-by a unique street-art experience in the dark.  

The project was kicked off by artist Dan Kitchener, well-known for his modern impressionistic street scenes at night.  The perfect recruit to highlight Sony’s low light photography feature, Kitchener’s mural adorns the Hat and Feathers Pub at 2 Clerkenwell Road and has already sparked considerable conversation on social media. 

The next seven weeks will see five artists in total take to the streets of the capital and create murals around the theme of ‘I Can See in the Dark’ which aligns with Sony’s latest ‘I Can’ advertising campaign.  The second mural, created by artist Zina, will be live from 20th July on the Great Eastern Bear Gallery in Shoreditch.

Drawing on years of expertise from Sony’s award-winning Cyber-shot™ and Handycam™ technologies, Xperia Z3 delivers superior image quality, better detail and a clearer shot thanks to its  ISO 12800 sensitivity.

Mobile Photography – iSights – ‘Nailed it!’ by Janine Graf

Share

We’re excited to publish our latest iSights column article by our fabulous editor Janine Graf. As always, it’s unique and full of humour. It is much harder to be funny than serious, especially on the page. When you write seriously you’re not hindered by the readers’ knowledge that you are trying to be serious. With humour the ‘funny’ writer is constantly measured against this intention to make the reader laugh. Fortunately, for us, Janine Graf is one very real laugh-out-loud funny writer and we’re sure you will love this.  Over to you Janine (foreword by Joanne Carter).

Mobile Photography Tutorial – Ansel: Channeling a Master or Taking his Name in Vain?

Share

We are delighted to publish Jerry Jobe’s latest mobile photography/art tutorial for our reading and viewing pleasure. This week Jobe takes a look at the mobile photography app, Ansel. Read his thoughts as he puts it through its paces (foreword by Joanne Carter).

Ansel retails for $0.99/£0.79 and you can download it here.

“As you might guess from the title of this article, I think it’s a gutsy move to name your app after one of the greats in black and white photography, Ansel Adams. His name and several of his images are familiar to anyone who takes even a passing interest in photography. He’s known for his painstaking attention to detail, so I don’t think it’s too much to ask to have an app named after him have the same focus. While Ansel is a nice app, I don’t think it lives up to the high expectations”.
