Mobile Art

Taking a break from editing and posting this summer’s vacation photos. . .

Last week my friend, Gail and I gave a little presentation to our AAUW photo group on Mobile Photography. Although I have a zillion apps and use my iPhone camera all the time, mobile photography really isn’t my thing (or Gail’s either, for that matter). But we both did some research (I strongly recommend the free videos through iPhone Photography School) and played with apps- and somehow managed to talk for 45 minutes!

So, just for fun- here is a sunflower taken with AvgCamPro, which snaps photos as you move your camera around, creating a rapid fire multiple exposure. I want to play with this one more! I edited it with TangledFX, which gave it a look similar to Topaz Glow.

 

And here is the same photo edited with BrushStroke for a painterly look:

And now with some textures added with the Mextures app:

I think that at some point, I will be embracing mobile photography more- but I still feel tied to (and love) my Nikon. One of my classmates in my photo group uses her older iPhone most of the time and edits her photos in Photoshop. Her images are displayed regularly in galleries- and they sell!
