Visual Communications Senior Lecturer designs new photography app

BA (Hons) Visual Communication Senior Lecturer, Richard Hurst, has designed and launched a new photography app entitled 35mm

35mm brings the skill, mystery, and anticipation of SLR photography to the iPhone. From film selection and exposure to manual/auto focus and flash options, you’re in control as you shoot a roll of 24 exposure B&W or colour film before ‘sending’ it away for 24hr processing. The screen goes blank as you take a picture, just like the mirror going up on an SLR. If 24hrs is too long to wait, an in-app purchase lets you process your pictures in under an hour.
