‘How I Did It’™ with Rad Drew – Create Collages with Image Blender

Share

I’m happy to share another How I Did It!™ video tutorial with TheAppWhisperer community! Thank you for your support of past videos. If you have suggestions for future topics, please email me at RadDrew@raddrewphotography.com

This tutorial features the long time favorite app, Image Blender, by JHND i Sverige AB. There are more sophisticated blending apps available (such as SuperImpose X, by Pankaj Goswami), but I love Image Blender for its elegant simplicity and ease of use. Its simple Arrange and Masking tools, and its assortment of standard blend modes are all that’s needed for many projects.

In this tutorial I share how I combined two images – one of a dancer and the other of a tree – into this blended result using the Arrange and Masking tools.

‘How I Did It’™ with Rad Drew – Lightroom CC for your Smart iPhone

Share

Hi, everyone! I’m back with another How I Did It!™ video tutorial, this one on using Lightroom CC for capturing and processing RAW files.

Capturing and processing RAW files has long been the standard among traditional photographers due to the increased quality that can be attained from RAW files. Now, the power of RAW shooting and processing and the resulting quality is available on mobile devices. In the video, I share tips about shooting RAW and processing RAW files in Lightroom CC on the iPhone. (Lightroom CC also runs on Android phones.)

Thanks for watching and thank you for your support of past videos. If you have particular topics you’d like me to cover in the future, I invite you to share your suggestions by emailing me at RadDrew@raddrewphotography.com!

‘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.

‘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

‘How I Did It’™ with Rad Drew ‘Select a Single Video Frame with Video2Photo

Share

I’m happy to share another How I Did It!™ video tutorial with TheAppWhisperer community! Thank you for your support of past videos. If you have particular topics you’d like me to cover in the future, I invite you to share your suggestions by emailing me at RadDrew@raddrewphotography.com!

In this seven minute video I share the iPhone-only app, Video2Photo by Francis Bonnin. This simple and easy to use app lets us extract a single frame from a video and process it as we would any photo.

Why is this great?!?

Because now we can record sports, our pets, our kids, dancers – any fast moving subject – then select the single frame that best captures the action. And the quality of the single image is comparable to photos taken with the native camera or other camera apps, so quality is not compromised.

Take a look at my video below:

Mobile Photographer & Artist Directory – BRAND NEW

Share

Last week I mentioned that we were creating a brand new Mobile Photographer & Artist Directory. Completely different from our Portfolio section, our directory enables each mobile photographer and artist to list their contact details, all social media links, their workshops, courses, images, links to interviews and so much more. Please take a look. We have taken the liberty of adding Rad Drew to our directory.  Each listing will be personalised to each artist.

We can categorise the genre of photography, eg street, portraiture, still life etc for searches by clients and we can also include your location in the world, down to the city. Therefore, for example when a prospective client is looking for a Portrait Photographer, in Cape Cod, United States they will be able to view the artists’ working in that area and contact them directly.

This is vast project and one that is desperately needed to ensure all mobile photographers and artists find work and all clients are satisfied. As you can appreciate to offer and maintain this vast directory will incur some administrative costs, so we are asking for a nominal fee of $8 per month or $80 for a paid up 12 month listing from each artist that we add to the directory (two months free).

If you would prefer a ‘premium listing’ inclusive of a biographical information, additional notes, or even a specially created ‘custom field’ and an image, the charge for this would be $15 per month or $150 for a paid up 12 month listing (two months free).

To join, please send your details to email – joanne@theappwhisperer.com, and select the donate button below to help to cover our administrative costs.

There’s no obligation for anyone to join this directory, it’s purely optional but as a central and vastly popular website, dedicated and committed to mobile photography and art, we felt we needed to offer this facility.

Mobile Photography / Art New Year Resolutions 2019 From Artists Throughout The World

Share

We are delighted to publish our New Year Resolutions for 2019 from a selection of highly talented mobile photographers and artists throughout the world. As in previous years we have asked mobile photographers and artists for their New Year Resolutions with an accompanying image or video . Thank you to everyone who has contributed, they all make great reading, viewing and are inspiring, we are forever grateful to you all.

One of my New Year Resolutions this year is to accept an invitation to at least one Private View Exhibition each month. Naturally, I do not want to attend these on my own, so I am inviting our readers to contribute to each opportunity by supplying questions for the artist I am viewing. The first private view I will be attending this year, is in early February, with Tracey Emin, at her major solo exhibition entitled ‘A Fortnight of Tears’. I’ll be chatting with Emin there, so please forward any questions you would like me to ask her, on your behalf. Another of my New Year Resolutions is to try to give each individual artist more of my time. That’s no easy task but I believe so strongly in all of your work, I want to encourage and help as much as I can. So, to each and every one of you, I wish you a very Happy New Year, with much good health, wealth and success!

(Editors note: If you have not contributed to this post and you would like to, or if you have sent me your brief and I have not included it here, please let me know and I will open up this post and add it and of course you have my apologises in advance).

New Projects – Our New Form of Artistic Installation aka ‘The Quilt’ Is Ready!

Share

We’re delighted to inform our readers that the quilt that so many of you contributed to, has now been completed. For those of you not aware of this project, it involved mobile artists contributing one image and each one was then carefully included within a large quilt to be displayed at the next gallery show or even Mobile Arts Festival. There has been a few obstacles along the way and we have overcome each one. This quilt was sewed together and finalised by none other than mobile artist, Lorenka Campos’ mother in law. We all owe her much gratitude. The quilt is now with Lorenka Campos, so if you would like to display it at your next event, please contact her for details.

I have also been reminded and I shouldn’t have needed to be however, “Linda Toki did the whole layout of the quilt and had it printed. She also spent days working on the catalog so I really think she deserves a shout out as the quilt would never have happened without her”. We all need to give huge thanks to Linda M. Toki – join me!!

With many thanks to everyone involved in this project, Lorenka Campos, Kate Zari Roberts, Roger Guetta, Linda Toki, Karen Axelrad, Christine O’ Sobczak, Jane Schultz, Marian Seid Rubin, Gina Costa, Armineh Hovanesian, Susan Rennie, Catherine Schell Caddigan, Elaine Taylor, M.

‘How I Did It’™ with Rad Drew ‘Using iPhone’s Portrait Mode’

Share

I’m excited to share another How I Did It!™ video tutorial created for TheAppWhisperer! The feedback from our wonderful mobile phone community has been great! If you have a particular topic you’d like me to cover in a future video, please share your suggestions! And thank you Joanne Carter for creating this space for sharing and learning, and for inviting me to be a part of it.

Today’s video tutorial features the Portrait Mode in the iPhone’s native camera app. The Portrait Mode works in combination with the dual lenses on the iPhone 7 Plus, 8 Plus, and iPhone X, to allow us to create a narrow depth of field that was previously only possible with traditional cameras. A narrow depth of field is a great way to draw the viewer’s eye to our subject, whether the subject is a face, a flower, or other element that we want to isolate and feature.

In this tutorial I demonstrate the use of the Portrait Mode and show how, with the 8 Plus and the X model iPhones, lighting can be selected both when shooting as well as after the shot has been taken.

Thanks for watching and stay tuned for more to come! Until next time, keep on shooting!
