Apps Uncovered 26 August 2018

Selected by Nicki Fitz-Gerald

I am so happy to be selecting images for iPhoneography Central’s weekly gallery, Apps Uncovered again. As I poured over the images in our iPC Flickr gallery this week I can see that there has been no let up in the creativity. Such beautiful and stirring images – it is always a job to choose – however some of your images just have the edge and when I try to figure out what it is about the images, for me, it is always about emotion; the mood of a piece and I believe my selections this week have cleverly used colour, form and composition to create very strong moods both in black and white and colour. If you want to create images that create an emotional connection with your viewers take a closer look at this week’s selection and consider why these images are so impactful. Study the colour, composition and textures.

Big city nights by newcomer Paul Suciu is our lead image this week. Paul says that he is “fascinated by the night lights” and that it is one of his “greatest pleasures to wander the streets and observe/capture poetic things.”

Here’s a man not only with a great eye for composition, form and light but a gut instinct for a image that carries a strong sense of mood. I urge you to click on his photo and enjoy his Flickr stream.

The line-up in this week’s top talented iPhone artists and photographers are the following:Paul Suciu,Lydia CassattRoccanticaTessfra,  jun yamaguchiDouglas KayDmitriy ProtasovScott Simpson and Laurence Bouchard.

Big city nightsApps used: My image was taken with my iPhone 6 Plus with Hipstamatic – Pinhole Lens. Edited then with Snapseed and Stackables.
Backstory: I love low-light photography, and I am fascinated by the night lights. One of my greatest pleasures is to wander the streets and observe/captures poetic things. And so was this picture taken.

QuietApps Used: This photograph was taken with the Hipstamatic App. The Hipstamatic combo is Yoona, Love81 and Cadet Blue Gel.
Backstory: I am a great lover of fog scenes and fortunately, we have a lot of it on the coast of Maine. I shot this one morning and I was pleased to catch this minimal scene in deep fog. It gives a sense of quiet and peace.

Family days: August 2018.

Apps used: The image was taken with an iPhone6 and processed by instagram, no filter was used. Backstory: During a family reunion it is normal that children pass their bed time, and the adults need some time to gather their things before going home and help their host cleaning. So the children are sent in front of a TV. While all the other kids were glued to the medium, one of them stood aside with a toy in her hand. I could not [help] but take a picture of her.   Beach girlApps used: I shot with my favorite application Slow Shutter Cam 
I did the post treatment with Leonardo iColorama and Snapseed.
Backstory: Last week I went to the ocean and there were [a] few people on the beach. This woman [in the image] was cycling. Her silhouette attracted me immediately.

PolinaApps used: Photo taken by iPhone SE Backstory: It’s a backstage of my analogue photoset Untitled

Apps used: It was taken on an iPhone7 and edited in Snapseed….converting it to black and white and then adjusting highlights and shadows.
Backstory: This image was taken whilst I was on holiday. I noticed how the light was falling on the bedroom floor after I had opened the curtains one morning. I love these kind of photos and I am always on the look out to photograph this kind of subject matter.



Apps used & Backstory: This was shot at a beach in Kagawa Prefecture, Japan. The beach has these small kind of streams that flow into the sea which are really still. It’s a popular place for taking photos and, it being Japan, a lot of women use summer umbrellas to protect themselves from the sun. I liked how still the silhouettes were in the stream so I decided to flip it. I then made a few adjustments in Snapseed.
