WHAT YOU NEED
iPad or iPhone
I am a creative explorer using the iPhone/iPad to make art. I create for self-expression and self-reflection. I started iPhone photography in March 2013, quite by accident. At that time I had no photography experience and only five photos in my photo roll. But I was looking for a creative outlet and soon discovered the potential of iPhone photography and photo editing. I am now a writer for the iPhone Photography School and instructor for the iPhone Photo Masters Academy. I also have a blog, Creative iPhoneography.
What inspires me is play, expression, and reflection. I believe every photo is a self-portrait. My photos simply reflect who I am at that moment in time. I notice the beauty in ordinary things and I tell stories about the extraordinary qualities of ordinary things we see everyday. My photography focuses on mostly objects and things around us that appear imperfect, forgotten, or alone.
Painterly enhancements and grunge textures are a natural part of my editing process. Painting the photo creates a dreamlike quality and grunge helps tell the story of forgotten objects. I want the viewer to feel something instead of just see something when they look at my photos so capturing the mood of the place or subject is really important. My photos present the world as a quiet, reflective place.
I also enjoy creating digitally using vintage portraits, old book illustrations, and stock photos. Mixing and merging old and new elements is always a delight!
