The Photo that Makes Kelly Smile and Think About Family

Fracture is lucky to have Kelly Logan as a photography intern this semester. Whether she is photographing our products or showing us the photography work she does outside of Fracture, Kelly never fails to amaze us with her skills. She recently placed a Fracture order and we would love to share more about the story behind her photo. Tell us about where and when this was taken. I took this photo outside my sister’s house in Montana.  We were leaving …

The Adventures of Bianca the Intern

Mountains loom over the lake, yet the sky looms over the mountains. The branches of the trees are not swaying in the wind, yet the clouds appear motionless. A connection to nature and sense of movement can be felt in these photos by our spring intern Bianca. We gave Bianca the chance to write about her crazy travels in Alaska and Hawaii and why she chose to Fracture these photos. We took a boat tour (in the Glacier Bay Basin, if …

At Fracture we love when a photo is gorgeous— composed well and an excellent shot overall.  But we also REALLY love when a photo tells a story and conveys an authentic emotion.  As a result of these two… We sorta have a love/hate relationship with stock photos. Click To Tweet   Often they are well-shot, well-lit, generally great photos of someone or a group of people or any number of things.  But often they also have this feeling of fakeness …

2014: Our Year in Numbers and Pictures

2014 was a crazy year.  And Fracture had some of that crazy ourselves this year.  We asked our CEO his thoughts on the adventures Fracture had in 2014. Here’s what he said: “Here it comes…that obligatory “Man! what a year it’s been! Let’s reflect on everything that’s happened….” post. Well, this isn’t going to be that kind of post. I’m pretty tired – just like the rest of the Fracture team. I just really want to take a long nap – like, …

Photo App Review: Heirloom

So we’ve got some sad news: Heirloom is no longer available for download. Instead, check out other great photo scanning apps here. As avid smartphone photographers, we’ve reviewed apps that allow you to improve your mobile photography and up your Instagram game with editing software and custom settings. But what about the old physical photographs that hold the best of memories, the ones that are starting to develop a sepia tone as they’re stuffed in a shoe-box under your bed? …

Gazillions of Baby Photos: An Interview with Casey Liss

In addition to being the Marketing Director here, I’m a bit of a tech nerd. I’m not a developer, but really interested in app development, and the way Apple and other big tech companies grow and change. As such, I’ve become a big fan of the Accidental Tech Podcast. They really got me with their reference to the “load-bearing pinky” (about holding your iPhone to use your thumb to tap the top row of apps.) Recently one of the hosts …
