My app game works on my Android and iPad!!!

Find the Differences game for smartphone devices

I’m ecstatic to announce my mobile app game works on both my Android and my iPad!!! It’s a somewhat educational “Find the Differences” game.  Spot all the differences between the two photos before time runs out, in this case – before the crab bites the mermaid, and you’ll get a brief summary, fun facts and tourist information about the beach displayed.  This is the “Beaches” edition with photographs of various beaches over the United States.

I developed my game using Flash with Actionscript code. Using the exact same code, I’m able to make the same app work on both Google Android devices and iOS devices. To do this, there were some changes required to the dimension of the app and images but the Actionscript code remains the same. I snapped all the beach photos myself with a Canon t2i camera and used photoshop to created the differences in the images.

*update: As of Jul 2013, there has been 70,000+ downloads of my game from the Android Market.

Photography and Grahics Design

So I’m not all about just charts, reports and data. Those things make-up the my useful side but do little for my creative streak… and new creative tools.  My new Canon t2i DSLR has allowed me to explore the world of photography and image editing.  After many hours spent editing and reworking photos, I now have a much better understanding of Adobe Photoshop and feel any image is possible.

I’ve acquired skills and techniques that are usually restricted to professional photographers.  For example. I’ve taken photos in HDR(High Dynamic Range) – where the colors are so vibrant it seems like a scene out of an animated movie;  Infrared – where trees and grass appear like snow; and even used Chroma Key Compositing (aka Greenscreen) – where a picture of you can be layered with another pic and make it seem like you are in a variety of  other settings and locations.  To visit some of my work, see slide show below.
