I heard from my editor yesterday… I should be seeing the galley proofs of my iPhone photography book in a couple of weeks. Yay!! I cannot wait to see those proofs, and I’ll be sure to give you a sneak peek when I do. It’s such a long process, I almost forgot I wrote a book over the last few months. (Well, not really, but I tried not to worry and obsess about it too much.)
With this reminder that a real book is in the works, don’t forget you can preorder it right now on Amazon, and it will show up in your mailbox in January when it ships. Preorders are hugely important to its success, so I appreciate each and every one! Thank you!
On another note, today’s image is edited with the Formulas app, which is from the same creators as Stackables, one of my favorite apps. The Formulas app is a simpler version, with a list of preset formulas you can apply which include layers from the Stackables app.
The good is that it is very simple to use: Select a formula, adjust the intensity (0 to 100), and then either save or apply another formula on top. You can also add a frame in a similar tone. Super easy. Today’s image was edited with the Glazed formula at 100% followed by the Orange Zest formula, at a lower intensity.
The bad is that you have no other adjustability. You can’t rotate the formula or change blend modes, either for a single formula or more than one applied. Super frustrating, if you like a little control.
The formulas are very much monochromatic and highly textured, so if that’s your style this is a great app to add to your arsenal.
If you like a little bit of flexibility and control, as I do, then it’s probably not a great app for you. I’ll stick with Stackables, where I can experiment and adjust the layers to my heart’s content.
That’s the beauty of mobile photography, there is something for everyone. You just have to find the right apps!
