Faved On Flickr iPhoneography Showcase, 07.29.12
Here is this week’s Faved On Flickr. I started sharing these iPhoneography showcases in August, 2010, which makes this one of the longest-running mobile photography showcases on the web. Here are some of the excellent images chosen from the those shared to Life In LoFi’s Flickr group.
As mobile photography and iPhone art become more widely accepted as a “legitimate” art form, it’s interesting to look at these and other showcases and look at not only the composition of the image, but how the processing (or lack of) helps convey the artist’s intent. Now, thanks to iPhoneography being displayed in more and more traditional photographic exhibitions, the public is recognizing iPhoneography for a great, moving piece of artwork and not a picture created by a novelty.

I love the texture and tonal qualities of “Golden Brown,” this week’s lead image by Sean Hayes. It’s a gorgeous, warm panorama that needs to be viewed at a larger size to fully appreciate the details of the image. It’s a deceptively complex image, having been processed through six different camera apps to achieve its look.
Also in this week’s showcase is more excellent iPhone photography by Dixon Hamby, Benamon Tame, Alan Kastner, Greg Schmigel, Shel Serkin, Kerryn Benbow, Jahsharn, ade santora, Shane Martin, Miki Ballard, one of several great images submitted by Messy Vignette / Paul Sheen and many others.
Several of this week’s artists were also selected for our new, Twitter-only feature, Life In LoFi’s Daily Pic. Follow @LifeInLoFiBlog on Twitter to see each day’s image.
Links go back to the iPhoneographer’s Flickr photostream. There are a lot of first-time appearances in this week’s selections and I encourage you to follow the links to discover new artists whose work catches your eye.
Submissions are open to everyone with an iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad. To submit your photography, simply post your images to Life In LoFi’s Flickr group. Sundays, we feature a brand new showcase of more great iPhone photography
There are many other stunning works posted in our Flickr group. Be sure to stop by there and have a look at the many other images that I can’t fit into this piece.
Please enjoy this set. As always, it’s the iPhoneographers who deserve the credit. My sincere thanks to all of the iPhoneographers who continue to share their outstanding photography here and elsewhere.
