"Will this new Photos app have all the power and features that pro users have come to love and know via Aperture? Time will tell, but while Aperture was a total re-think in how photographers dealt with their images (it was the first non-destructive workflow for photographers on the market) when it came out in 2005, this new paradigm may, just may, be as equally revolutionary."   #Aperture   #Photography   #Photos

"We live in such interesting times for photography, which hardly looks anything like when I started in the film days, but that's exactly what makes photography so incredibly exciting! And it won't look like it does today in the near future... be fluid!" #Apple   #Aperture

Graphic designer and photographer Elise Swopes’ photographs highlight the city of Chicago in all its various seasons and settings. Towering buildings touch the clouds, while neon signs illuminate the streets below in Swopes’ iconic images. Her aesthetic has not gone unnoticed, attracting the attention of brands such as Nike, Samsung, Coach and Sony.

"This serendipity of constant flow and change is the energy that propels many street photographers in exploring new environments. It challenges both your ability to observe and read interactions between people and their surroundings, and your own comfort level in participating in it."

"Train your eyes to see deeper and over time, you will see patterns, relationships, and things that overlap and layer upon one another, and influence one another, just like life does."
