#1 in App Store and the Icelandic Phallus

First in App Store for Photography!

Thank you guys and gals very much for the support – it wouldn’t have happened without you!

This last weekend, 100 Cameras in 1 (iTunes link), got into the first place spot in the hotly contested photography category for the iPhone. We’re also in the top 10 in 40 different countries – insane (see stats). I never expected any of that… It’s all very exciting and the whole team here is ecstatic.

We’ve heard all sorts of good suggestions, and a great update is coming up soon. The update will be free as always. Besides several new features, we also have some new achievements that we’ve been mulling over. With some good prompting from guys like Charlie Sorrel and Mike Schramm, we’re going to push them through. I don’t think this app will ever be done, but we’ll continue to evolve it as better and better ideas are folded into the mix.

Below are a few of my recent creations with the app… I put them out on Twitter and FB on occasion, but thought I might share them in the main blog here.

Best Camera iPhone

Created by mixing together two different effects via the new "Add Effect" button on the My Creation screen.

Best Camera iPhone

To make this, I first used the black & white effect in the Zen Effects group before adding two other effects to give it both light leak and some color.

Daily Photo – The Icelandic Phallus

I’ve probably just accidentally offended the fine Icelandic people with that name. Sorry about that… but I don’t know what it is. Most old cultures have statues with some kind of phallus, so it was a good guess. It’s a doubly-good-guess since Iceland is the home to the famous “Icelandic Phallological Museum” (wikipedia link, but don’t click on it), which sounds like a pretty happening place.  I told you not to click on it.

I found this in the middle of another one of those 6-hour sunsets. I had spent the first part of the day in a far northern fjord, at the farmhouse of a good friend.  About 200 km later, I found this spot near a crook in the road, standing up like cairn stones against time.

    Gorgeous sunset Trey! Congrats on the app – good news!

    Wow Dude. That is truly awesome….as always.

    I know I already mentioned my photos going up at Kerbey lanes original location in midtown Austin starting tomorrow, but I thought I’d also let you know that I give you “100%” credit for inspiration on one of the little info cards that are going up next to each picture. Your work was the original reason I ever started trying HDR and continues to be a huge motivational force behind any progress I make. So Trey, if you happen to be eating some pancakes on Kerbey lane during February take a look at the plaque next the pic on the wall. It might have a little something something about you on it.

    Gorgeous lens flare! Love the light striking the left of the, eh, fallus… 😛

  • I hope my bosses didn’t think I was looking at anything dodgy while I was on my break – the name of today’s photo shocked even me haha!

    I can’t believe they have 6 hour sunsets in Iceland – that’s incredible! It’s so hard to time you pics here in Scotland if you are wanting a specific sunset or sunrise photo as they are over so quickly.

  • Simon Morris

    Nice shot Trey… I also like the lens flare, plus the monument gives a great sense of spiritual feel to the place… excellent!

  • Beautiful capture! Really nice range of colors in the sky. Who’s the dude pictured on the monument itself?

  • I cannot even imagine a six hour sunset…HDR heaven!?

  • Gail in Montana

    Me, too, Andy, lol. When I saved the photo on my computer, I called it the Icelandic Sculpture, lol. And I didn’t look at that site, but I might go back and click on it, he he he 😉 The photo is gorgeous, the “sculpture” looks like a very talented people did it. And the sun going is beautiful and bright!!! Thanks for sharing the Phallus with us, hehehe 🙂

  • Gail in Montana

    I should have listened to you, Trey!!! Yuck, lol. :-O So since I’m posting again I can correct my sentence, the sun going down.

  • Gail in Montana

    Hey, Trey, your favorite glass artist, Chihuli, spelling ?, is on the CBS Early Show this morning. One of the gals on the show is learning to blow glass, being taught by him. Wow!!!

  • Thanks!

    Simon and Patrick – I always like the lens flare too. We get some complainers from time to time that say, “You know, Trey, to be a real photographer, you should really get rid of that lens flare.” hehe…

    Gail – hehe – told you not to click on it!

  • Holy cow- that app looks incredible. Is it available on the Droid or just iPhone? Gotta have it!

  • Congrats on being #1 in the app store.

    That photograph really is beautiful, I love how you have caught the sun just at the same level as the rocks.

  • This really has that ‘in the middle of nowhere’ feeling… Agree, the lens flare does add a sense of reality to certain shots. The sunsets in Iceland make me want to throw caution into the wind and go on an adventure… Haha.

  • Love the pic trey but lens flare drives me nuts! As with hdr we try to overcome the cameras limitations in my mind the same applies with the glass on the cam -;0)

  • That is really beautiful! The sunset reminds me of the view from a romantic novel.
