As smartphone cameras continue to evolve, so do amateur photographers.
Launched this past December 16th, FLTR is an app created by the team at the British Journal of Photography that publishes a weekly iPhone-based magazine highlighting smartphone photography.
FLTR provides a new generation of amateur photographers the opportunity to exhibit their work for other users as photography continues to head in a digital direction. In addition to accepting user submissions, FLTR also offers stunning images captured with smartphones, exclusive interviews, reviews of other photography apps, and how-to guides and tips for photography and smartphone use.
Designed to inspire and champion the creativity of non-traditional photography, the initial issue of FLTR features a scholarly article on the impact of smartphones during traumatic events and catastrophes, as well as an interview with Instagram personality VuTheara Kham, among other things.
The app is available for free download at the iTunes Store, after which you can subscribe or purchase individual issues. Further drawing on the unique nature of smartphone photography, content can be shared directly from the app with friends online, on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and EyeEm.
