PixHole - A Unique Interactive Game to Enjoy Instagram

I'm always on the hunt for new apps - I'm not sure why since I have some pretty amazing ones already and haven't even tapped into their capabilities.  Not all of the apps I download are photo editing apps. Some of my favorites that have nothing to do with photo editing are Mailbox, MyFitnessPal, Launch Center Pro, W.E.L.D.E.R. 

A new discovery is one that allows me to view my Instagram feed while also challenging myself with the unique puzzle feature of PixHole.  I have to admit it is addictive!

I had a chance to interview the developer to find out more about PixHole.

G:  What is your name and where do you live?

S:  My name is Stefano Figurelli and I live in Italy, with my wife and our two kids, 4 and 2, in a small town called Savona near the sea.

The Mobile Photography of Tracey Renehan

It has been a great experience getting to know different mobile photographers through this interview series.  This feature spotlights the work of Tracey Renehan.  You may be familiar with Tracey's street photography, but her talent doesn't stop there.  She's also a very gifted portrait photographer and also explores the realm of abstract editing in her work.  I'm sure you will enjoy learning about her as much as I have.

The Whole Story

One day some girls on my street got hold of chalks and started writing on the paving stones in the backyard. Then one of them must have come up with the bright idea to number all of the stones.  And probably - just to finish the job - they wrote the only sentence they know in English: "I love you".

This Has Nothing to Do With Mobile Photography

But...I thought it was sharing for the sheer enjoyment of it!  Dutch filmmaker Jeroen Wolf captured footage of people ages 0-100 and put it together in this video montage.

The Whole Story

Taken during a group explore during the late winter months of 2013, I’ll remember this capture for the beautiful water reflection and opportunity to spend a day with friends new and old learning about and capturing  the history of Detroit. Flat on the ground in a water filled floor with a mobile device, the feeling was that of being submerged in time with those that came to worship and pray at St. Agnes.

Press Release:

Transform digital photos into one-of-a-kind works of art with Tangent

Tangent AppSan Diego, CA – July 11, 2013 – The photo app development team at Pixite LLC, in partnership with award-winning creative technologist Ben Guerrette, is excited to announce the release of Tangent for iPhone. Tangent is an innovative new photo app that gives anyone the ability to easily transform their photos into one-of-a-kind works of art, a skill set once reserved for graphic artists.

Inspired by the shapes of the world around us, the geometric forms are completely scalable, empowering the artist to drag, zoom and rotate at will using simple finger swipes and pinches.

The Whole Story

Increasingly I see many people glued to their mobile devices.  In all my work, I try to explore beyond the immediate environment, it's the spaces round the edges that inspire me.  My image 'cleaning the top of the world', is all about what we don't see.  What can this person see, what is it like to spend your life cleaning the top of a building no one sees?  It is my hope that we all take time to look up a bit more and see the stories that are all around us.  Don't blame me if you get infected with the incurable lookyup disease!

Rob Pearson-Wright: Like a Kid in a Sweet Shop on WeAreJuxt.com

Just a teaser from the interview I did with Rob Pearson Wright for WeAreJuxt.com.

"My mind is blown daily by some of the photography and mobile art that I come across. Also, there is a fantastic sense of community and a willingness to share techniques, workflows and secret app combinations. I think ultimately that we take slices of inspiration from everywhere and everything like artistic magpies. It could be from other artists, books, films, paintings, photos, music, nature, you name it. We absorb, adapt it and apply it to our own experiences." ~ Rob Pearson-Wright

Join Rob and I as we discuss creativity, photography, and the community in this article.

Luci Zoe - Fear Less, Love More

Luci Zoe
I am so happy to be able to continue this interview series with the very gifted Luci Zoe.  Although Luci does use apps to process her work, her images have a pureness about them that is very compelling.  I hope you enjoy my conversation with this very talented iPhone photographer.

Geri:  What is your name and where do you live?  

Luci:  My name is Luci Zoe and I live and work in New York City, with a home in the Catskills Mountains in upstate New York. I spend a lot of time in both places, providing me with a weekly stark contrast in perspectives and views.
