    Are you into collage art?

    Giuseppe Ragazzini has released a fun new collage app!

    See juryjone Jerry’s thread here for some examples and discussion about Mixerpiece .

    And here is a link to the app on the App Store.

    Calling all new (and not so new) MobiMembers!

    It's never too late to start either a Project 365 (post one picture a day) or a Project 52 (post one picture a week). Start today and your project will be finished 364 days (or 51 weeks) from today! It's great fun; a great way to get to know your fellow MobiPeeps; and a great way to use all of those new photography apps you've been downloading.

    It's very simple to get started. Go to Image Forums and click on Projects and Ongoing Work. Next, click on Mobitog 365 Project (or Mobitog Project 52). In the top right corner click on Post New Thread. This will be your thread in which you will add all of your photos so title it with your name (e.g Lisa's Project 365). If you have any questions just shout and someone will be glad to answer!!

    Mobile Photography Tips from Pros

    Lenses and filters






    “Any use of filters in photography is easier if you have the classic RGBCMY photographic colour wheel firmly in your mind. If you have the painter’s colour wheel in mind nothing will make sense. The same is true for any type of colour correction on images. Photography involves both additive and subtractive primaries. Filters pass certain colours and absorb or block certain colours.....”​

    Read more excerpts and see more examples from FundyBrian ‘s textbook on filter/lenses here

    10 TOP TIPS FOR BETTER BLACK AND WHITE PHOTOGRAPHY

    iPhonePS Emil’s iPhone Photography School offers some helpful hints on how we can improve our black and white photographs. The article comes from an iPhone angle and some of the apps may be iPhone only, but I think the advice is pertinent to ALL mobile devices.

    “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery”
    Imitating a photographer you admire is not only flattery, but a great way to give a new twist to your photography.
    The iPhone Photography School have interviews with several photographers - take a look and see if you’re inspired.

    Mobi Weekly Appstract will start 7 January and run Sunday to Sunday.

    Here is a chance to cut loose and show off your aptitude (or not) with filters overlays glitching reflecting layering painting altering double-exposing and more. Themes are chosen by the weekly guest judge (previous week’s winner) and could be anything from a colour to a shape to a letter or number, an occasion, a line from a poem or . . . something I can’t predict :appsir:

    Come one, come all, beginners or experts, nobody cares — and besides, it’s abstract art, that wonderfully undefinable thing that invites you to forget the rulebook and just play :D




    New members: please join in.

    Thinking about your photo projects for 2019?!?! You can sign up now for Mobi365 (see the tab in the banner at the top of the page). It’s a great way to practice your skills or learn a new app or two!

    Also...for those who do not have time to devote to a photo-a-day project, fear not!! You can now sign up for Mobi52. Yep, post one photo a week. It’s slightly less challenging but still very rewarding!

    Only one day left to support our inaugural Weekly APPstract Challenge - No excuses, you don’t even have to be an abstract artist! You need an imagination and one or two apps.

    If you are a new member, or if you haven’t posted for a while, or if you don’t join in abstract challenges, it’s a great way to see the loopiest of Mobitog’s fruitloops in action. This week’s theme is ‘three wishes’. Not that anyone has paid much attention to that. terse Ted posted a picture of his dormant iPad :rolleyes:

    Please have a look and join in here - APPstracting is a tried and true method for increasing your app knowledge and skills. Seriously. And your social skills. And your dress sense :mobibabe:

    In this week’s Weekly APPstract (link here)


    sinnerjohn asks how “appstract-ers” create their images:
    1. do most of these art works start out as photographs, or something else?
    2. I note that most (not all) of the apps regularly mentioned are apple apps. Do you think Apple is better for this genre?

    rizole does some evaluating of paint/draw apps for Android. (sinnerjohn , Coronation80, alexfairkon and other Android users, do you agree with rizole’s ‘best so far’?)

    The challenge is closed for images (#4 has started here), but your thoughts & comments are still welcome in the thread.

    And your app-ed images are warmly invited into Weekly APPstract #3!
