Dale and I wanted to include technology in our rebranded newsletter format -- CLICK HERE to get on our newsletter mailing list. Our lives are surrounded by it nowadays and it's nothing to be scared of but embrace it! There is so much useful information, places to see, and a community to explore. They say that today's iPhone has more muscle under the hood than the NASA computers that put the man on the moon. In fact, my old iPhone 6s could be used to fly 120,000,000 Apollo-era spacecraft to the moon!
On any given day Dale uses his iPad to display the image he paints from, does correspondence, stores his portfolio, and photo adjustments. He AirDrops the images he shot with his iPhone via AirDrop. Want to learn about Airdrop? Check out this video. http://bit.ly/airdrop-popovich. He uses Photos to color correct, crop, and adjust the lighting. I know the Androids have similar apps. I handle Dale's social media, design his marketing, and even layout this newsletter. That's just for starters.
I found an app to help you understand values called NotanIzer. Sometimes a scene can be so colorful with textures you lose sight of value. Well, this app will help you see and understand values better. Whether you are in the studio or out doing a day of plein air painting. Easy to use on the fly, sitting at the doctor's office, or at your drawing table. I like it because it gives you flexibility allowing you to save your options in your camera roll. The app costs $1.99.
