This special feature is to showcase those excelling at creating some extraordinary art with their phones.
Why do you love to utilize your phone to capture these images?
Well there’s always the convenience which is the obvious answer. I also love that I can edit my photos, upload, store and share them all from one device
Has your phone helped spark more creativity onto other type of work?
I am a full time photographer. I love shooting weddings and families. I spent an entire year developing a style using my iPhone camera. I strongly believe doing that helped me look at everyday scenes with a more creative eye.
Where does your inspiration come from?
I get a lot of inspiration from different things. The way a shadow is displayed on a wall, wide open spaces, music, and of course my two daughters.
Can you share some tips to achieving your style of art?
Movement – When I am shooting movement I rarely watch my camera, but instead my subject. Doing this usually ensures that I am hitting the shutter when I see something I want to capture.
Composition – the more I started shooting with my iPhone, the more I started seeing things in a different way. If I find a wall, field, or any scene that I am particularly fond of I always survey the surroundings first. Once I have come to terms with my surroundings and they look good in my frame I always make sure my camera is held still. One simple move can change the entire composition and cropping a mobile photo isn’t exactly the most forgiving task.
