The Sharks are Circling Google

Multiple Layers in 100 Cameras

Now that the new version has multiple effects and an adjustment slider, I’m seeing all kinds of creative stuff! We’ve got thousands of people out there snapping up photos with 100 Cameras in 1, and it’s a blast to see some of the creations.

I saw this image on the right on Twitter.  It was created by Kamau Akabueze (click for his blog), and it came out pretty cool.  Although I’m not exactly sure how he made it, but I think he started with a black and white effect, and then started layering some of the hardlight or overlay effects before finally adding one of the heavy texture-effects.

Quick Mention on TapTapTap

Lisa Bettany’s finger looks better than mine, yes? Yes. There is little doubt about this.

She put together a video that shows off some of the cool stuff for Camera+ (You have that one too, yes? Go get it… these things are only a few dollars!)

See her video on about how to avoid blurry iPhone Photos.

Daily Photo – The Sharks are Circling Google

The very nice Cliff Redeker over at Google took me all around the campus after my [email protected] talk. It’s a very cool campus, and I set up a for a bunch of fun shots.

I don’t know if this is supposed to be a shark fin or not, but it reminded me of all these silly recent news stories about everyone coming after Google. From the German government to other bureaucratic busybodies, things seem to be heating up. But don’t worry Google… I got your back… and so do all my friends here on StuckInCustoms! 🙂

    Very creative Trey… I like the lines of symmetry on the buildings, nice!

  • Patrick Ahles

    Could be a tooth, of some shark snapping already? 😛

    Great angle!

  • Maybe they have giant mechanical sharks as part of some elaborate, classified security measure at Google and this one accidentally smashed through the Earth’s crust with it’s terrifying dorsal fin – or something…..they have lovely bike racks!

    Just like wood – the textures on scuffed / brushed metal always comes out a treat in HDR!

    Neat photo, Trey. It does look like a shark’s fin, and as you said, the sharks are circling google. Could it be that we have a little jealousy going on in the web world?? I have to figure out more about my google chrome so I can use it. Thanks for sharing!! Raining here still, but not flooding, we are so blessed!!!

  • Thanks all!

    Andy – yes I like the idea of the mechanical da-vinci-like sharks… or maybe there is a little DHARMA stamp towards the tail.

  • Wonderfully composed image. Love the perspective.

  • Awesome vibrant colors and lines! I like to think of the “shark” as google’s ability to devour informational barriers over the ‘Net, which they do VERY effectively. 🙂

  • Love the ‘blue’ tower-seem to hold it all together…..LOVE google 2..happy monday.

  • Thanks so much for the feature, Trey! Love the blog and your work, so it is an honor. Glad that you like what I’m doing with the app! There are definitely a Tom of great creations out there.

    I actually layered in about 5 textures and filters in the app before I went Black and White. The contrast and highlights came out much more crisp that way. Then I went out an added the border in Camera+, and brought it back into 100 Cameras to add the final effect layer. LOVE THIS APP!


  • Perhaps it’s a Rimbaldi artefact…..

  • …or the entrance to the Black Forest Lodge

  • Awesome!
