iPhoneography: Faved on Flickr 01.09.11
Every Sunday, we present a small number of the outstanding images that were posted to the Life In LoFi group on Flickr recently.
Wow. It was a prolific holiday season for iPhoneographers. In the two weeks since the last Faved, over 80 pages of images were uploaded to the Life In LoFi Flickr group. Even if you don’t upload, please be sure to look over our Flickr group. There are many many many great images that don’t get posted here.
For the first collection of Faved on Flickr for 2011, Iâ€™m pleased to present another strong collection of images. It was very difficult narrowing down the choices for this week’s post.

This weekâ€™s lead image is another one of Emily Rose’s studio series. Regardless of the camera used — in this case an iPhone with a custom tripod mount — she has been creating some excellent glamour photography recently.
I was really happy to see two of my recent favorites show up in the group this week. “St Lazare Station” by Benedicte Guillon and “We are each gifted in a unique and important way….” by Aik Beng Chia blew me away the first time I saw them. “St. Lazare” is classic in its composition — a perfect capture of curves, light and moment. The untitled portrait by decaspert is timeless and a stunning capture. Nacho Cordova’s “Self Porting” is whimsical and fun on several levels. Not all portraits have to be of people to be great. Miki Ballard’s portrait of her dog, Maxie, is a great portrait. Maxie’s face emotes character and playfulness.
Aaron Davis’ “Let Your Fingers Do the Walking” is a great composite and an excellent choice in processing. The color, lines and shadow of “Â°negative spaceÂ°” by Jim Hansen looks like a studio product shot, even though it was photographed in a hotel room. Edgar Cuevas gives us an deep, emotional double portrait with his “A glimpse into his future”.
“Under the Globe…” by Red Kiwi Photography has excellent curves, lines and color. In contrast, “Dungeons” by AlGrega has curves, lines and an excellent gritty texture to it. The choice of monochrome accentuates the contrast in the ancient bricks.
Several images this week feature excellent use of iPhone app Decim8′s abstract, modern pixel destruction. And finally, as a bonus, I included a commercial piece by Reservoir_Dan — CD cover art which was created primarily on iPhone using the Percolator app.
There’s a lot of images this week. I believe this is the most I’ve ever selected for this feature. There was a lot of excellent photography to choose from — a lot of outstanding production featuring many different photographic styles. And if you’re new to the blog, yes, all of these images were shot and processed using only an iPhone and many of the apps available.
