I keep saying that still life iPhoneography images aren’t my typical genre. It has to be said though that I’ve been having a lot of fun recently playing with floral images which lend themselves so wonderfully to the textured iPhoneography style of work that I enjoy.

My first small floral collection was inspired by my desire to try out some new iPhoneography apps and I liked the resulting styles. I have shared some workflows from that collection, specifically ‘{ rose }’ and ‘{ hydrangea }’. I guess they inspired me to continue the journey and experiment further. I added a few new apps and worked on producing a small cohesive collection of images. I didn’t do them all in sequence, there are various street and other images in my social media streams. I find that working in this way keeps my images fresh without impacting the cohesive feel.

‘Dandelion’ is without doubt one of my most well received floral images. Probably the most well received. I am really honoured that it has been featured by:

  • iPhoneography Central – amongst 24 images of the week for the weeks of 24th and 31st May 2013.
  • NEM Still Life Selections (New Era Museum) – selection 01, 1st June 2013.
  • iART CHRONiCLES – Painterly Mobile Art Monday, 3rd June 2013.

See more of the weekly galleries from May 2013 at iPhoneography Central.

This weekly gallery features 12 of the most outstanding iPhoneography submitted to the iPC Flickr group and elsewhere on the internet. The aim of the gallery is to show the very best of the wide variety of iPhone, iPad and iTouch art and photography. The artists are also asked to reveal the apps and workflows used in creating their amazing iPhone photographs and art which is detailed beneath each image… For a chance to be included in this weekly gallery, please join the iPC Flickr group and remember to add the process/Apps you used in order to be considered. Thank you.

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 fueled this new passion. With just one device I can shoot, edit and post in just minutes. I’m passionate about sharing what I learn. My blog, iART CHRONiCLES features artist interviews, FREE app links, tutorials and the latest news in the mobile art community.

These ‘wild’ flowers were all either foraged during my walks in my urban environment or brought in from my garden and photographed and edited in a controlled way.

      Hi Dianne, thank you very much. I’m really pleased you enjoy this series. Painterly / texture is probably the bulk of what I do and as I say florals seem really suited to that style.

    Hi Peter
    have been enjoying your Facebook images so ventured here. Really love what you do, composition, colour and mood……..you always get it right.
    Can I ask what app or apps you are using and do you use a combination of iPhone and SLR? Do you also use Photoshop?
    It is wonderful you are getting the recognition you deserve.
    Regards, Elizabeth

      Hi Elizabeth, thank you very much for your kind comments. Comments like yours keep me motivated to share (I’ll always be motivated to create). Hopefully my blog answered your questions re apps – but to confirm my images are always either iPhone and iPad or SLR / DSLR and Photoshop. I don’t contaminate between the 2 but that is my personal choice. Mobile photography definition tends to mean captured and processed 100pct on smart phone / tablet apps and that’s the ideology I adopt on Skipology.
