I tend to think that with iPhoneography, there is always time to read/watch tutorials and become more proficient in the art of iPhone Photography. With the release of Dan Marcolina’s new eBook, “AppAlchemy”, it’s a quick, concentrated way to learn skills and techniques to take your work to the next level.
AppAlchemy is a 100 page interactive iPad ebook on Experimental Photography Processes with iPhone apps. It features overviews of Marcolina’s 40 essential apps and 32 image formulas some with detailed step by step video tutorials. There is also over five hours of video instruction and it also includes many resource links and examples of work based around each app.
I spent this past weekend reading and interacting with the ebook and I must say, it’s brilliant! It’s more than a book though. It’s a media-rich interactive app with a beautiful user-interface, that offers the most valuable information for any iPhoneographer.
The book is broken down into the following categories:
- Production Apps
- Grunge Apps
- Light and Blur Apps
- Toon and Graphic Apps
- Film Looks Apps
- Camera Apps
- HDR Apps
- Auto FXs Apps
This is definitely a book worth downloading, as you will learn from one of the most experienced and recognized digital artists in iPhone photography today. When you’re done with the book, you’ll want to hit the App Store with a vengeance and download Marcolina’s 40 essential apps!
