Chapel Hill Dawn

iPhoneography

iPhoneography

For most of last year I used nothing but my iPhone for my personal work and became completely enamored by the process. Then in the beginning of 2015  a longing for a ‘real’ camera caused me to set the iPhone aside. But after visiting some of the Mobile Photography websites my ‘Big Boy’ cameras are back on the shelf again. I find the big camera lends itself to a cleaner, more realistic representation of what I’m trying to portray, while iPhoneography provides the opportunity to explore textures, compositing, and complete abstractions. With a traditional photograph I know before I trip the shutter how I want the final image to appear. Mobile Photography allows the image to evolve during processing.

You might wonder, why not shoot both? While that might work for a lot of photographers, it takes me time to settle into, not just an image, but a genre. So for the time being I’ll be giving the Nikons and Fujis a rest and focusing on all things ‘Mobile’… with perhaps a few exceptions for special occasions.

    • Hi Anita. I process on the iPad. The phone is much too small for my unsteady hands. One of the reasons I decided to keep textures to the Mobile Photography has to do with competitions and online postings. Most are very strict about all work, capture and processing, take place on a mobile device and, at this point anyway, I like the idea of keeping images from my phone distinctly different from my bigger cameras. That may change in the future, as I really like the textured look, but for now I’ll keep them separate.

      Thanks for visiting! Hope you’re enjoying this great summer.
