Dave's Apps Recipe Book Project

"Screenshot" - Infinicam - Autochrome (Q5E-23G8)
One of the reasons I switched to an iPhone this past spring was because of its photo/video apps. Okay...the only reason I switched.... Since getting my iPhone I have accumulated close to 100 of these apps and find myself adding to the list every week. Many of these I use often but I have to admit that most I haven't used since I downloaded them! (I suppose the subtitle of this post could be called, "So many apps, so little time...) Some day soon I will start figuring out what to do with them all...some day soon...

I have been a loyal follower of Seth Apter's blog, The Altered Page, for quite sometime. His blog is known, among many things, for the collaborative projects he hosts. It has been my pleasure to participate in many of these...not only do I get a chance to have my work seen by a host of wonderful artists, I also gain so much from what everyone shares. I have also felt that at some point I needed to "pass it forward" and so in this spirit, I would host my first online collaborative project. 

One week and several days from today, on Sunday, October 30th, Clearer Reflections will host the first chapter of "Dave's Apps Recipe Book Project", an online collaboration. Please leave a comment on this post if you would like to participate. 

All you need to do are two things. First, post an image on October 30th on your own blog of a pic you created using a iPhone/iPad/Android-based phone camera and apps. Your pic can be of any subject and you can use any app(s) you wish...the only stipulation is that your image must be done all "in-phone".  Secondly, along with your image, also tell us how you created it. Be specific...give us your "recipe"! Did you use a single app...or did you use several apps? Give us the step-by-step recipe so that if we like what you did, we could use your "recipe" to create our own image. There are no minimums or maximums to how many apps used...just make sure to tell how and when you used each.

On the 30th, I will post a list of all participating photographers on my blog so that you can be sure to find all the links to all the "recipes". Please (and this is important!) email with a link to your post when it goes up so I know to add you to the list of links on my blog!!! My email address is: clearerreflections (at) hotmail (dot) com.

I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's favorite recipes...and hopefully this is just the first chapter of this "book". Also, please feel free to let your readers and anyone else you may know who might be interested about this project. The more who participate, the better!!!
