Smell of the Street, Apps Uncovered – 13 October 2019

Selected by Nicki Fitz-Gerald

Huge apologies for the late publishing this week! I’ve been experiencing some particularly pressing work issues which have eaten up all of my time so without further ado, I’ll step back and introduce you to this week’s smell-of-the-street-themed Apps Uncovered. (with a few non-themed exceptions thrown in for good measure). Our lead image was shot by veteran street photographer Rob Pearson-Wright, an iPhone photographer who undeniably has a nose for both the ordinary and extraordinary moments occurring across London town with his cunningly captured “This is my statement.”

That’s my statement!

That’s my statement by Rob Pearson-Wright
Apps used: Snapseed & VCSO setting A6
Original image cropped and edited through Snapseed to match the scene as through my eyes and then VSCO A6 filter used to try and add some punch to the image and add some contrast. Snapseed was used again to lessen some glare produced by the VCSO filter.

Backstory: Walking through London’s Chinatown I came across this dog chewing, playing with, properly going to town on this Police helmet. I waited to a few seconds to get the composition as the dog was swinging the helmet around in it’s jaws and click the shot. It belonged to a homeless guy but was very much a free-range dog.

It’s a trap!

App used: Original image rinsed through Snapseed to achieve a natural look and then VSCO was used to created a slight sheen to the image and add some contrast. Then Snapseed again to dial down some elements from the VSCO filter.
Backstory: I was walking around London’s West End to try and get some interesting pics. I walked past this sign near Cambridge Circus and chuckled to myself as I went by. I thought I’d better photograph the sign and doubled back. As I did I noticed this hip chap coming towards me and the sign. Having little time before he’d miss his imaginary mark, I prodded the screen to lock focus and composed a shot. Click. Soul captured. The chap and the sign seemed to be a proper match. Everyone on the street looked drab in comparison to this fella. More power on him and those who don’t fall for the trap!

Moving backwards

Moving backwards by Tomaso Belloni

App used: I shot with the standard camera app on an iPhone 7plus and edited with Enlight (Snapseed was not functioning for a few days) and with Hipstamatic (Vicuña CL Lens, Bream Film, and Laser Lemon Gel Flash). r.
Backstory: I opened Hipstamatic and for some hidden bug it showed me this from from last year, which I had forgotten. I just had to edit it. It’s a street corner in Ischia, an island near Napoli, where I spent an afternoon about one year ago. It gives a good feeling of the place and I thought some retro editing would enhance it. The place is beautiful, although most tourist probably only photograph the castle on the other side.

It’s bedtime Dad.
It’s bedtime Dad. by Kent DuFault
Apps used: Created with an iPhone 8+ and processed in Snapseed
Backstory: I was getting the house ready for the night by turning off lights and checking the doors. I looked up and noticed our Siamese cat, Bella, faithfully waiting for me to come upstairs to the bedroom. One of my iPhone pictures taken in Oregon was hanging on the wall behind her. I was struck by the beautiful moment, especially with the side lighting and the semi-silhouette view. I took the photograph, and I then made sure to preserve those visual qualities in the post-processing.
Kitchen- Dark Mode

Kitchen- Dark Mode by Al Gieryna
Apps used: Museimage
Backstory: My photo was a moment of serendipity. I was experimenting with the Musemage app and this image was the outcome. The photo setting I selected was Neon within the photo choice options in Musemage. After making the image with Musemage, I used the brightness setting within the iPhone editing options to create a slightly brighter final image.

I especially liked how all of the everyday kitchen items were colorfully highlighted against the black background. Hence, the title Kitchen- Dark Mode.

Waiting for a Friend

Waiting for a Friend by Barbara Braman
Apps used: Created with an iPhone 8+ and processed in Snapseed
Backstory: “Waiting for a Friend” continues the waiting theme. I used another iPhone capture, this one of my daughter at a restaurant in San Francisco. The space was very clean and modern, almost futuristic. But the rainbow art hanging above her offered some hope. I like making images of people casually involved with their cell phones or tablets. I think in the waiting series it creates a sense of greater isolation. They are waiting for something but at the same time they are engaged in their own .
Tired of Waiting

Tired of waiting by Barbara Braman
Apps used: Museimage
Backstory: I’ve been doing a series on waiting, as we all seem to be holding our breath and waiting to see what happens next in this chaotic time. I took the original photo with my iPhone, while practicing some lighting set-ups with a friend as the model. This one uses line work from Ink Work and is painted in Procreate. I used some other photos to build a textured, layered background.
