Recently I came across the fantastic blog of David Szweduik and his Adventures in Creativity podcast. The blog is mostly a text version of his thoughts on the creative process as presented in the podcast. Although a photographer himself I feel much of what David delivers can apply to other creative arts.
As I normally do upon discovering new blogs I binge read much of it and discovered the fantastic Contrast by Hornbeck app. A simple square format, high contrast, black and white camera app for iOS (and Android?).
The app has a highlight priority nature (always preserves highlights and lets shadows fall to darkness) which seems a great tool for training people to see good/interesting light.
I’ve been putting this App to use in the 1950s office building I work in. An abundance of strip lights and shortage of natural light make for a great horror vibe. This also gives me a little creative outlet at work when I can’t camera around.
