Filter Fakers

Filter Faker

Filter Fakers is a collection of Instagram photos tagged #nofilter, revealing what filter they did in fact use. Makes me think a lot of people don’t know what #nofilter means.

The Pocket Reflector

Pocket Reflector

Phones don’t have the most sophisticated exposure controls, that’s where the Pocket Reflector comes in handy. Hold it opposite your main light source to bounce light back onto your subject. The white side reflects soft natural light. The silver side bounces back bright concentrated light. No batteries, harsh flashes or fancy pants required.

Also, the last line on the product description made me giggle: What if we told you we know a guy in New York with 7 pet camels? Then, we’d be lying to you, and we’d never do that.

Lomography Smartphone Film Scanner

The Lomography Film Scanner affordably scans 35mm film and slides right to your smartphone. It adjusts to fit any phone. Smart, says the woman hat has a stack of negatives in her closet.

Has anyone of you tried this yet?

The Bioscope

Consider me intrigued by the bioscope, a project by Jon Stam & Simon de Bakker. It was inspired by an early movie projector of the same name and is a medium to experience memories in relative time. By rotating the handle, the digital (or digitized home) movie is animated frame by frame, forward or in reverse, relative to the speed and direction that is used to turn the dial.

Pick Digicam

digicam

My seven year old is getting more and more interested in photography. This Pick Digicam might be a fun little camera for her to use on the go. Simply plug it into your USB port to charge or download images. Requires a Micro SD card which will give you hundreds of images on one charge. No batteries needed, works with both Mac and Windows!

CreatureBook.com

New York based photographer Andrew Zuckerman just launched a new site featuring his growing library of animal photography. CREATUREbook.com includes over 400 images from the expanding catalogue along with taxonomical data for each of the species.

(Wish there was a keyboard shortcut to switch between the photos. Or did I miss this?)

Double Vision by Julia Robbs

double vision

In an email earlier today, our Tattly photographer Julia Robbs, told me about her brand spanking new site. (Which has a Tattly section! Yay!) The site is beautiful and shows what an incredible talent she is. But what got me most excited is the fact that she now offers the Double Vision photograph as a print. I think I might be developing a pigeon obsession.

imgembed

Imgembed aims to establish a new standard for fair, online image use. It makes your photos easily embeddable and monetizable. Happy to see folks trying to innovate in this space.

MaddieCam

MaddieCam

The 0.99$ I spent on MaddieCam on Sunday have already paid off a hundred times over. Haven’t had this much fun with an app in a while. Maddie is the famous internet coonhound that stands on things and now, you can put her on anything you’d like, thanks to MaddieCam.

There’s also a fantastic book out about her: Maddie on Things. Oh, and she once stood on my desk.

Yes, I am a fan.

Phoneography 101

Photojojo University

Photojojo just launched Phoneography! It’s a 4 week class teaching you the fundamentals of photography, through the lens of your phone. Twice a week, you’ll get a simple, fun email with a new lesson, ending with a challenge to help you solidify your new skills.

The Photojojo team took everything you’d learn in a real-world photography class — composition, framing, editing — and re-thought it for the phone. It’s delivered in bite-size chunks over four weeks so it’s easy to digest and practice this stuff. And of course, they made it fun.

I heart Photojojo.
