Time out of Time

Digital Dude here. Lynette and I spent the weekend at the Hotel Lanai on the island of the same name. It's a classically beautiful Hawaiian inn; low key, rustic elegance, great food, true aloha spirit. When I wasn't playing golf, I spent my time making iPhone photos in the hotel's gardens. I then uploaded my favorite images to Animoto, added some local music and created an instant homage to a wonderful weekend. Hope you enjoy it!

Hi, Digital Dude here with a fabulous new site for you to check out. It's called Animoto and it makes incredible slide shows out of your images, be they from the iPhone or your big boy cameras. Pay a small fee ($30 per year), upload your images, choose their music or upload your own. Click! And they put together a spectacular graphic slide show in sync with the audio. You can play it on the net at their site, upload it to Youtube, or download a high resolution file for making into a DVD. Click above and check it out for yourself. This is a show I made using some of my favorite iPhone images. Let me know what you think! (If you should choose to sign up for Animoto use my referral code: uextanqo and you will get $5 off)

iPhone Art Hawaiian Style

What do you get when you cross a gecko with a plumeria blossom? No, not auto insurance! You get wonderful iPhone photo art, especially if you use the double exposure app DXP. The different blend modes allow for these different effects - first halfmix, then hardlight, then difference.

Lockton Loaded: iPhone Art That’s All In The Family

Yep that’s right! A whole family of iPhone artists has just shared some images with us! Check these out:

Lindsay Lockton took this wild photo by shooting subsequent photos displayed on iPhones - kind of a mirror reflected in a mirror reflected in a mirror......... How creative is that?

Her Mom, Kelly, shot this fabulous photo of cowboys and proceeded to tweak it in the following apps:
1st- Perfectly Clear to brighten up the picture, added more color vibrancy and over sharpened a bit.
2nd - PhotoForge to crop, adjusted the Vibrance again and "Posterized" it.
3rd - Photogene to frame it.
4th - ArtCamera, used the crumpled paper filter.

And dad Ron, the most recent iPhone convert in the family, “shot and shocked” this photo of Kansas City's autumnal splendor. He calls it simply “Midwest in Fall.”

The Lockton family by their own description have become official iPhone art addicts. And we’re so happy they are.
