The February, 2012 edition of “Dave’s App Recipe Book” happens just one week from today…on Wednesday, February 15th! On this day my blog, Clearer Reflections, will host yet another chapter of this collaborative on-line project. Here is your chance to not only show off your latest smart phone photography but to also share your favorite “recipes” on how you created your image….and to find out how others created theirs. There is nothing better than a good old-fashioned swap!!
All you need is to do are two things. First, post your image on your own blog, website, or Flickr site on February 15th. Along with this image, give a step-by-step “recipe” on how you created it. Be as specific as you can as we’ll all be taking notes. (I know I will!) Your image can be on any subject you wish and you can use as many apps as you want. You can also post as many images as you want! The only stipulation is that your image(s) must be created entirely “in-camera” or iPad.
On February 15th, I will post a list of all participants and their links on Clearer Reflections so that everyone can be sure to find your pics and recipes. Please (and this is important!) email me with a link to your post when it goes up so I can add it to my list on my blog. My email address is: clearerreflections (at) hotmail (dot) com.
I’m looking forward to this month’s edition…I hope you join in the fun! If you have any questions, please get in touch with me. And…because the more the merrier, please pass this post on to those who you know who would also be interested!)
One last thing…I hope you noticed my new “logo” for this project. (I like the distinquished look it gives me…) I thought it also might be fun to also post two versions of the logo…just in case you want to use them on your blog….
The new year is off and running!! My i365 project is on its way…I’ve been able to create and post images for the first three days of this year….and above is a sneak preview of the one I’ll post tomorrow. I’ve been posting each day’s image on my Flickr, Tumblr, Facebook, and Twitter pages. I’ve not posted the daily images to this blog, other than now, as it’s my plan to post every Monday what I think was the prior week’s best image. (Feel free to weigh in with your own vote each week if you’d like!)
I plan to start doing my App Recipe Book Project every month. First done back in October, 2011, it received enough interest that I’d like to continue hosting the project. Here’s how it will work…
On the third Wednesday of every month my blog will host this online collaboration. This month’s edition would be January 18, 2012. All you need to do if you would like to participate is first leave me a comment on this post and/or send me an email. (clearer email@example.com). Then on January 18th, post an image on your own blog, Flickr, or Tumblr of a pic you created using a “smart phone” camera or iPad 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” (or iPad). Thirdly, 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? Give us the step by step recipe so that if we wanted, we could use your “recipe” to create our own image. There are no minimum or maximums to how many apps used or how many images you post on your blog.
Come January 18th, I will post a list of all participating iphoneographers on my Clearer Reflections blog so that you can be sure to find all the links to all the “recipes”. Please note (and this is important!!!): email me the link to your post when it goes up so I know to add you to the list on my blog. Again, my email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have any questions, please ask! Also, please, please spread the word around to everyone you know who might want to participate…the more the merrier!! I’m looking forward to seeing all the wonderful images you all are creating…and sharing recipes!!!
P.S.: I will post reminders between now and then…
