I've been meaning to write a post about an iPhonographers group I joined via an app. The group and the app are called MobiTog.
This is not that post. That will be a longer post about the community, the app, and how it all works.
This post is about my most recent add to a contest MobiTog has called Elements of Surprise (EOS). The EOS challenge is a photography relay race of sorts. 1 person posts a photo and then everyone who has joined the team on that challenge goes 1-2 times, depending on the size of the team, and adds something to the initial photo in order of their turn.
To make an addition to the photo, you use other apps and photos.
The most recent EOS challenge was 1 that I started with the photo above, which I created using the app Layover.
It got even more out of this world as the next 6 or so people went.
When it got back to my turn again, it looked like the photo just above.
People use all sorts of apps to make additions to EOS challenges.
You can add objects that are just clip images, or find or take a photo and use part of the photo by cutting out that part and superimposing it onto the EOS image. There are other ways to go about it, but these are probably the 2 most common ways to add things.
There are many very creative people in MobiTog and doing the EOS challenge, so it would be hard to name absolutely every way a photo can be changed, added to, altered, etc.
This is what the EOS challenge looked like when I finished my final turn (above).
I found a picture of the Doctor Who TARDIS, cut it out using the app Mirage – Photo Studio and using the same app, superimposed the TARDIS onto the EOS picture. Also using Mirage, I did some warping of the TARDIS and added some shadows to make it look more realistic. Then, I opened the whole photo in Alien Sky and added some stars as lights to make it look like the TARDIS was just landing. Finally, I cropped the photo a bit and enhanced it just in the Photo Library app itself, and uploaded the photo again to MobiTog's app.
Like I said, this is not meant to be a review of MobiTog, any of the mentioned apps, or even a full description of what the EOS is. It's just an example of a creative community founded by and filled with people who are fans of iPhone photography and what they are capable of doing.
You can take a look at what MobiTog is all about yourself at the MobiTog website and take a look at all the EOS final photos ever created here. It's a great deal of fun and I'll tell you more about it when I do a full review of the MobiTog app in awhile.
This was just a little something to break up the review monotony and show off something I am proud of.
That's it for me today. Until later, …
