I was really honoured to be invited to share some images and thoughts on iPhoneography and mobile photography in general with Geri across at iART CHRONiCLES. Geri, went nice and easy on me with the questions and I invited Geri to select the images she wanted to include as part of the feature.

If you get opportunity to read the feature, you will see that I don’t really have a formal art background and so I can’t reel off quote after quote. I do pick a few things up on my travels and one of my favourite quotes emphasises my view that the opinion of you, the viewer, is equally as valid as my own. I was therefore very interested to see which images Geri would choose and I’m delighted with her selection.

There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer.

Thank you Geri for your kindness.

The Feature

The feature starts…

Skip Brown – A Most Talented iPhoneographer.

In search of iPhoneography tutorials, I luckily happened upon the website Skipology where I was first exposed to the work of Paul “Skip” Brown. Or was it AMPt? Maybe EyeEm or Flickr? It’s hard to say because Skip’s work is everywhere. I found a treasure trove of information alongside his beautifully edited photographs. In addition, unlike many mobile photographers who choose to keep their app recipes as closely guarded secrets, Skip generously shares his process along with detailed tutorials and even a few videos! I couldn’t wait to find out if he would be interested in being interviewed. Happily the answer was yes!

It would be unfair of me to replicate the article here. To view the feature and selected iPhoneography please visit iART CHRONiCLES.

The questions I discussed are:

    Geri: What is your name and where do you live?
    Geri: How long have you been an iPhoneographer?
    Geri: Do you have a traditional photography or art background?
    Geri: Who or what inspires your work?
    Geri: How did the Skipology website evolve? Speaking of your website, did you design it? It really has a slick interface that’s very user friendly!
    Geri: In your words, the aim of your images is to “capture or create an atmosphere rather than a scene”. Do you shoot with that end in mind, or do you decide on the editing process after you view your camera roll?
    Geri: When shooting, do you use the native iPhone camera app or another specialized app like ProCamera or Camera+?
    Geri: Along with your beautifully textured work, you also have quite a bit of street photography. Do you have any suggestions for those who are interested in this genre?
    Geri: Do you have favorite go to apps? If so, what are they?
    Geri: Please share a bit about your editing process?
    Geri: I love that Skipology includes detailed tutorials for your beautiful images. Have you ever taught any live workshops or considered doing online courses in iPhoneography?
    Geri: Have you ever exhibited your work? If so, where?
    Geri: iPhoneography seems to be gaining acceptance in the world of photography? How has your work been received? (I did get on my soapbox a bit when discussing this – sorry Geri!).
    Geri: Many people make a living with traditional photography. Do you think this is possible with iPhoneography as well?
    Geri: Is there anything else you’d like to add?

About Geri

After several years as a sci-fi sketch card artist, I was bitten by the iPhoneography bug. I’ve discarded my Copic markers to pursue this evolving art form. Sharing through social sites like EyeEm and Flickr fueled this new passion. With just one device you can shoot, edit and share in just minutes. I’m passionate about sharing what I learn. iART CHRONiCLES features FREE app links, tutorials and interviews with amazing mobile artists.
