PhotoToaster Processed into Instagram – Apps for iPhone

I do love revisiting older iPhone images captured after finding a new app I like. First I used PhotoToaster, which offers a lot of processing options and effects, saved it to the camera roll, then processed the new rendering through Instagram.  This is an old tricycle I saw through the window of an abandoned home in Johnson City, Texas.

East Austin Studio Tour Announced for November 10-18, 2012

November 10-18 East Austin Studio Tour will be here, I have applied and will await my confirmation that my studio will be participating.  Time to get prints and materials rounded up.  This is one of my image choices for advertising.  Taken with an Olloclip lens for my iPhone 4. I love the feeling I can convey with multiple apps being combined. I’ll be having a preview party on November 9, from 6-9pm if you want to visit before the weekend crowds.

iPhoneography and the Bonus of Spontaneity

Yup. You have that iPhone with you just about everywhere.  That is what I love about it, the opportunity for creativity is always at your fingertips. I saw this shark bottle stopper while out to dinner and well… hope you enjoy the fun of this moment. “Shark Week” with a little Photo Toaster app.

iPhoneography in a College Course

English College Offers iPhoneography Course In my perusals, I found this link that iPhoneography has made it to college. In ENGLAND. This Austinite thinks that would be dandy!

My name is Tina Weitz, and I have an addiction. Yes, I am crazy in love with my iPhone camera and apps.

The research I have been doing for my upcoming class on June 10, Addictus ∝ iPhoneography, has re-inspired me all over again as to the power of this emerging artistic medium. Our phones are with us most of the time, which in turn keeps my mind’s eye open more often. In the next few months I will update my iPhone album(s) at photoweitz.com.

For class, I hope to be as beneficial for those who attend as my co-teacher, the talented Energizer Bunny Carol Schiraldi, at House of Carol. To find out more about her ongoing photography antics and artworks go to this photostream link on flickr.

Until then, keep your phone/ipad camera ready for opportunities.   Aren’t we the lucky ones when we get to be the passenger in a car? I love “mobile imagery” at every bend in the road.

End of the Iraq War

I remember when my father returned from Vietnam when I was in the 6th grade.  After seeing bullets fly on tv and the reality of war, having him back in our own living room was such a gift. Tears all around, including the dog.  So now, another war ends.  The fortunate get their loved ones back alive. History repeats itself once again. This is my homage to the men and women of war, their courage, and to their ever waiting families. God Bless all who met the challenges of the ultimate sacrifice.
