iPhoneography: Faved On Flickr 07.10.11
Here is this week’s Faved On Flickr showcase. Over the past two weeks, iPhoneographers from around the globe have shared their excellent iPhone photography and art in Life In LoFi’s Flickr group. Submitted for your approval… this week’s showcase from the more than 2,000 images shared in the group over the past two weeks.
Read on to see all of the photos in this week’s gallery. >>>
Life here at the creative studio for the past few weeks has been inhumanly busy and has greatly reduced the time I’ve had for things like the blog and sleeping, which is why we didn’t have a showcase last week. I’ve gone back through two week’s worth of images for this expanded Faved showcase.
There was a lot of great photography submitted. I’ve loved Alastair McLachlan’s visually powerful iPhoneography for some time and this week’s lead image “102 Degrees. just blew me away when I saw it. In this expanded edition, there’s some outstanding iPhone photography from Aik Beng Chia, Star Rush, Dixon Hamby, Kerryn Benbow, Laura Peischl, ©arlein, Nicholas Corsalini, Souichi Furusho, Jennifer Bracewell, Tamara Manning, Marco La Civita, Sherry Chen along with the many others. And Greg Schmigel shared another of my favorite images from his catalog. My goal, as always, is a mix of familiar iPhoneographers and works from artists who you may not be familiar with yet.
I look at every image submitted to the group. Images that catch my eye are separated out to be further narrowed down for inclusion in the showcase. Is it a visually compelling photograph, whatever the topic? If it’s not an abstract, how well does the photograph tell the story of the moment? Does the production enhance the photograph?
Some of the photos just catch my eye for no explainable reason — I just like them. That is part of the mix of curating. But for the most part, the above are some of the criteria that I use when starting the selection process for images for the showcase.
Hopefully, these images inspire to create –they demonstrate what the iPhone is capable of as a camera and a processing tool.
Whenever possible, I’ve used the photographer’s real name in the caption, not the Flickr nick. This gives proper credit and recognition to the photographers and to better enable the viewer to get to know better each photographer and their work. Links go directly to the iPhoneographer’s Flickr photostream. If you like what you see, please click and check out their other work.
For your chance to be seen, all you have to do is be a member of the Flickr group, post, and keep adding great images. If you haven’t joined yet, here’s the link to Life In LoFi on Flickr. Then, check back here Sunday. We’ll have more.
Even if you haven’t shared your photography here, I hope you enjoy the images in this week’s showcase. Many thanks to all who post their works and let me share them.
