“Landscape photography is the supreme test of the photographer…” Ansel Adams

A field of flowers with eye-popping color. A tiny figure at the edge of a canyon. Horses in motion, a sun drenched forest, a misty morning oceanfront…Mobile photographers create some of the world’s most compelling photographs of the natural world. The best work engages the aesthetics, craft, and tradition of landscape photography while embracing the advantages of the camera phone. If you want to expose your pictures, start by learning how to make an album on imgur.

50% DISCOUNT for On-Line iPhone Photography Training Course

Banner_Var1_980x690Many of you may have seen Bob Weil’s new video course advertised over the last ten days or so. We thought long and hard about whether we too would share the 50% discount offer with our readers. After viewing a series of the videos the answer became an enthusiastic YES.

Any doubts we had vanished after watching Bob explain the app Superimpose. Masking, layering and compositing can be used to create something completely new, far removed from the original image – it can also be selectively and carefully used to make subtle changes within a picture. But we often find that simple layering techniques on a desktop app end up becoming full of work-arounds on the phone. Alas! Along comes Bob, and in a very real, personable way, he just keeps showing us new techniques and simpler methods.

Watching his videos results in a constant stream of “…AHH! THAT’S HOW IT’S DONE!” moments.

It’s actually incredible how much Bob knows about apps. It makes sense that he has put together this video course – he knows what he’s doing. Look, we’ll be straight up about this – if you’re seeking to enhance your street photo skills this probably isn’t going to help you BUT if you’re looking to enhance your knowledge and abilities about creating art on your mobile device this course offers a great foundation.

This Mobile Photography Training course is packed with 41 excellent, easy to follow (and replay over and over) online training videos, which show you in plain language how to think like a professional photographer and artist, using just the right apps and techniques to create stunning photographs and artwork on your iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch and Android device.

We have reviewed the course content and truly believe this is an excellent opportunity for the MPA community really slick, informative and well-produced iPhone Photography Video Training Course.

HURRY, you only have until 05th July 2014!
