Image Stabilization in ProCamera

Nobody wants to come back home from a trip and find shaky photos on his device. We all had that and know how annoying that is… Image Stabilization techniques can nowadays help a great deal in avoiding these useless shots.

What causes blurry photos?

Besides a misplaced focus, the main reason for blurry photos is motion. Motion can occur through camera shake and/or subject motion.

Modern technology and a little bit of photographic comprehension go a long way in avoiding blurry shots. The photos above were taken long after sunset with an iPhone 6 at ISO 1600.

SHOTS OF THE YEAR 2014 – Simply the Best

Today is the day ProCamera, in partnership with EyeEm, is going to announce the winners of the “Shots Of The Year 2014 Award“. In contrast to the theme of “simplicity”, selecting the 12 winning submissions wasn’t an easy task for the jury.
Crucial factors for the final choices were the connection to the theme, the photographic proficiency, the variety of genres and that certain something.
It was important to us that simple doesn’t have to mean boringeasy or ordinary in this context.

“Simplicity boils down to two steps: Identify the essential. Eliminate the rest.”
– Leo Babauta

Congratulations to our final winners! We have seen a lot of great photography in the course of SOTY2014!

Urban Reflections – An Artist’s Approach with ProCamera

When the ProCamera team asked if I would create a guest post for their blog, I happily agreed. I was introduced to ProCamera in the summer of 2012, and it’s been my go-to photo app ever since.

I’ve created this post from the perspective of a visual artist who uses mobile photography as a component in my practice. You might ask — how exactly does mobile photography feed into my work as a visual artist? I’m still exploring this, as mobile photography is a relatively new medium for me. I hadn’t before considered mobile photography as an art in its own right, but ProCamera began to change this notion for me when I noticed the high quality photos it has helped me achieve. Sometimes, the photos are starting points for drawings and paintings. And at other times, the photo itself becomes the work of art.

As I walked along the Landwehrkanal, I was struck by the autumnal colours and this lone figure sitting beside a tree. Without the figure, the photo wouldn’t be as interesting. If someone or something catches your eye, don’t wait around as things can change quite suddenly. Find a good vantage point and take the picture before the moment passes you by.

I’m here in Kreuzberg, Berlin at the moment. This wonderfully diverse Stadtteil forms the backdrop of the photos contained throughout this entry. Below, you will find the photos I took along with a description of my artistic process. Continue reading
