Apps Uncovered 4 March 2018 – An Aura of Mystery


Selected by Bob Weil

This week’s Apps Uncovered presents a selection of what I found to be the most intresting images for the week in our Flickr group, across a wide range of styles and subjects – but with one common theme – An Aura of Mystery.

This week’s lead artwork is an edgy doll’s portrait by Poetic Medium – really eerie and mysterious, no?

Pascale.G (2), Jean Hutter, Rodriguez Gabriele, Sergiy Bellayev, Cathrine Halsør, Louise Whiting and Julia Nathanson complete the week’s selections on this theme.

If you’d like to see your images in the running for selection to our weekly Apps Uncovered feature, be sure to list the apps you used to create your image when you upload it to the iPhoneographyCentral Flickr group. (And as an added bonus to other members who would love to learn from your successes, consider adding the “Backstory” describing the creative process that led you to capture and process the image as you did.)

Ghost Melody

Ghost Melody by Jean Hutter

Apps Used: SlowShutter Cam, iColorama, Waterlili, Touch/Retouch
Backstory: I created this image for a challenge on a Facebook group. I took the original image on one of my morning walks. I love working with tree photos and I wanted this image to have a ghostly feel. I accomplished this using SlowShutter Cam and a lot of work in iColorama. A little touch of Waterlili gave it a painterly feel. The challenge is art and music and I was trying to portray the melody of the wind blowing through the trees.


Phuong by Gabriele Rodriquez

Apps used and backstory: The apps I used to build the image are Distressed FX, RipPix and PicsArt. I used an Iphone 6s to take pictures during a shoot with a model.

•Walking into the Unknown‍♀️

•Walking into the Unknown‍♀️ by Sergiy Bellayev

Apps used and backstory:
1) the photo was shot on iPhone 7 Plus with Hipstamatic iOS app, using ‘Hornbecker’ lens and ‘Pistil’ film. Then the image was double-exposed overlapping itself in ‘Diana’ iOS app using ‘RUSTY’ preset.
2) It was a really quiet and foggy winter day with snow lying on the ground. Silence, serenity, calmness and a fleur of some mistery – that’s what I felt and what I tried to express in my photo

Her Silence

Her Silence by Cathrine Halsør

Apps used: Snapseed, Formulas, Distressed FX, Imageblender
Back story: A warm sunny day in January, I saw a butterfly dancing in our indoor balcony. She was so beautiful an it gave me hope of spring.
Sadly she died a few days later. I just had to take her inside and shoot some photos of her.
After adding texture and turn it into b/w, I combined it with a ‘X’ made in iColorama. The final image is accompanied by the wonderful words from Nikita Gill.
Never ever mistake
her silence
for weakness.
Remember that sometimes
the air stills,
before the onset
of a hurricane.
– Nikita Gill
