iPhone Obsessed: Photo Editing Experiments with Apps

Book Description

Obsessed with the instant gratification achievable with his iPhone, designer/photographer Dan Marcolina dedicated an entire year to performing a series of mobile image experiments. The amazing results, as well as the many insights on how they were achieved, can be found in this gorgeous, four-color iPhone photography guide.

Without ever leaving your iPhone, learn how to create artistic photographic effects such as blurs and vignettes, high dynamic range, traditional film effects, black and white, and more, using just the right combination of over 35 low-cost iPhone apps covered in this book. Marcolina takes you through the construction and inspiration of each of the images in his book explaining which apps he used and what drew him to the image. By the end of this book, you'll not only be inspired to use your iPhone to create frameable, hang-on-the-wall art, but you'll know exactly how and with what apps to do it.

To coincide with the launch of the book Marcolina plans to also release a tablet companion version for IPad / Android. It will feature some interactive demonstrations from the book along with some new app formulas and videos with in-app internet resources.

Full of iconic, refined, but unexpected images that are meant to stretch the viewer's creative mobile arsenal, (all images are processed completely on the phone with no computer), iPhone Obsessed will help raise up the typical expectation of iPhone photography and show how the combination of picture choice and multiple App processing can mold a snapshot into a statement.
