INSTAGRAM.

Vous connaissez… ? Ah, j’oubliais un détail, vous ne connaissez Instagram que si vous avez un iPhone. iPhone 4 de préférence.

Cette petite application fait un malheur en ce moment, avec des milliers d’inscrits de par le monde. C’est tout simplement un “outil” de partage de vos photos prises sur l’iPhone.
Juste avant de poster votre meilleure œuvre, vous pouvez la remixer avec des filtres d’effets. … Et attendre les commentaires de vos meilleurs 3 500 amis… : )

Et une communauté de plus!

Mon pseudo sur Instagram : 10dier

iPhonArt?

August 12th, 2010 No comments

I am crazy. Mad. About iPhone. And I shoot almost 10 pictures everyday with it. For some ideas, textures, graphics design I will use after, it’s basically my Trends Books…; ) Then I transform the pictures, I remix them with one of my 100 photo Apps… : )

It’s about Art.

iPhonArt precisely. The tool: your iPhone; What to do: Art… Create, recreate, unusual shots, think Gallery, think Museum, do your piece of art could be there?

It has to be created with the iPhone, then… Sometimes magic happens. With a little help from the Apps… • SATROMIZER • ADDLIB • PIXEL • Buro Destruct • Art Remix • Toonpaint • Etc, etc…

ReMeMbeR: Creativity is NoT about the Tool… ; )

Summer 2010, Arcachon (Near Bordeaux), France.

August 10th, 2010 No comments

WIKIPEDIA:

Arcachon (Arcaishon in Occitan) is a commune in the Gironde department in south-western France. It is a popular bathing location on the Atlantic coast 55 kilometres (34 mi) southwest of Bordeaux in the Landes forest. It has a fine beach, and a mild climate said to be favourable for invalids suffering from pulmonary complaints.

Arcachon is known for the “Arcachonnaise”, the local name for an Arcachon villa, which is the architectural style of many of the older houses built there. It is a type of Victorian architecture, and was criticized for generations, but is now considered to be charming and deeply human.

The town of Arcachon is only 150 years old. Not long before 2 May 1857, when Emperor Napoleon III signed its official “birth certificate”, it was just a forest of pine trees, oaks and strawberry trees (arbutus), with no road links, and home – mostly when the weather was expected to be warm, and more in wood huts than in real houses – to fewer than 400 people, mostly fishermen and peasants. In earlier years, when some hygienists began to recommend sea bathing, three sea establishments were laid out by some entrepreneurs especially for the Bordeaux bourgeoisie and other wealthy people. This was the beginning of a new lifestyle, and some of the locals got the opportunity to claim their independence from La Teste-de-Buch, which owned their properties, in order to found a “free” new town, Arcachon.

At its southern entrance from the Atlantic ocean, Arcachon Bay is crowned by Europe’s largest sand dune, the Dune de Pyla (or du Pilat), nearly 3 kilometres long, 500 metres wide, reaching 107 metres in height, and moving inland at rate of 5 metres a year.

The area is served by Bordeaux Merignac Airport and the TGV Atlantique.

My Moleskine.

July 28th, 2010 No comments

Let’s discover a new trend. Coming back from digital to paper ages.
The revenge of the Ninja! Almost. At least the revenge of paper.

Few times ago I have re-discovered  the pleasure of opening a notebook.

Smelling the paper, the ink. Something that I can touch, feel, remember. I always have a dozen of notebooks following me all the times. Empty. I just love the object. In all sizes, material.

But I must admit the ones I love the most are the Moleskine ones. Suddenly, one day, I decided to buy some and USE them. But as a creative, I HAD to customize them! No Sir, I don’t want the same notebook as yours. I want my version. Of course I think the best material to do it is leather, but this time I wanted a “Baroque” stylish one. For the first try.

Red Velvet. That’s it!

Of course it’s a first try, stay tuned…

I will soon make one in leather.
The problem is: what to put inside! : )

What to do with an iPhone?

June 10th, 2010 No comments

One silly Question: What can we do with an iPhone?

Most of you will answer that we can call with it. Yes. Errr… Yes. But it’s boring to use it just for calling right?

The right answer is: a billion of things. This is why it’s the best smartphone ever. ( I’m not addicted! ) The genius idea was to create a phone that won’t be just a phone. 2 iPhones are exactly the same from the exterior. What is important is inside… The Apps. Then you can have your unique iPhone. It’s an extension of you.; )

How do I use it:

  • I use it for calling
  • To receive/send my emails
  • To schedule my appointments
  • To get all my contacts from Linkedin, Facebook, Gmail etc in ONE place
  • To record sounds, notes, ideas (mic)
  • To read my RSS feeds
  • To see all my photos, videos, movies
  • To listen to my music
  • To get a map
  • To text/ SMS
  • To take photos/Videos
  • To Chat (Yak Messenger)
  • To be on Skype
  • To be on LinkedinFacebookMSNFriendfeedTwitter
  • To Blog with WordPressTumblr
  • To send a video where I am (Qik)
  • To get all my notes from the Mac (Evernote)
  • To share my location (Brightkite)
  • To create/retouch my photos (HipstamaticClassicPanTiltshiftGenCamerabagDXP,Autostitch, LofiGeniusFotomuseAddLib…)
  • To create/retouch my videos (Qik VideoHolywoodFXVintageMakerSilentFilmAnimoto,ReelDirector…)
  • To draw (BrushesSketchBookTypePhotoEasternDrawing…)
  • To post photos (Flickit Pro…)
  • To create music (Noise.ioBeatmakerFlourishBloomiDrumOttoVoicePlusRJDJ,BleepSynthNanoloopProLoop…)
  • To wake up (NIght Stand, Alarm Clock…)
  • To write ideas (MomentoiThoughts…)
  • To choose a color for my creations (myPantone..)
  • To read Word documents, PDF (Quickoffice)
  • To see what on TV (Télérama TV (French))
  • To identify what music is on the radio (Shazam, SoundHound…)
  • To Buzz (Google Buzz)
  • To see where I am (Boussole)
  • To play with games (Spore creaturesFieldrunnersSimCityMonsterDoodleJump,DoodleArmy, BIA2…)
  • To play and create fantastic backgrounds (Bubble Harp, Gravilux, ChromocamTurnAround, SpawnHD, Pulsar, iPsychedelic, Musophobia…)
  • To see what books I bought (MyBookshelf)
  • To see the Movies I saw in my life (Movies)
  • To save all my passwords (1Password)
  • To make the tea (mySelf) I’m kidding here.

And then, you can MIX!!! Create Music with the sounds of one of your game etc. Etc. Endless… ; )

And you? What do you do with yours?
