Faved: iPhone Photos of the Week, 09.28.13

Welcome to the latest edition of “Faved: iPhone Photos of the Week,” featuring some of the excellent iPhoneography and iPhone Art shared in Life In LoFi’s Flickr group. These are just a few of the thousands of works submitted to the pool this week.

The lede image this week is an outstanding underwater photo by Jack Webb (j43webb). His untitled piece is simply gorgeous! From the velvety, high-contrast black & white tones to the stellar composition, this is a real show stopper! By contrast, Andy Chapman (Andy^C) whispers into the night to give us “The Fog,” a delicately beautiful photograph. The string of twinkling lights is captivating!

Once again this week, I was delighted to discover a few names that are new to me and whose work is notable. “La Gomera” by cyberfunks conjures Willian Eggleston, while “She” by g_e_mm_a (espacios-parentesis) is pure Elliott Erwitt. Nilesh Soni (nileshsoni21) creates a colorful abstract with his “Weekend Shopping” and, in a throw-back to last week, Michal Koralewski’s “Tiny Music from a Box” is strikingly reminiscent of Eugene Atget’s “Organ Grinder.” Mark Kinrade’s “Sunrise with the Others” is wonderfully evocative, and has me eager to learn more about the magical story unfolding in this image.

Several still lifes captured my attention this week, especially an untitled photograph by Julie Nagel (notabagel), which could easily be mistaken for a painting by a Dutch or Flemish master of the seventeenth century. Still life literally means, “Dead Nature,” so Clay 3’s “Dried Out Thingys” couldn’t be more classic in choice of subject matter, arrangement, and treatment. Marianne Rieter combines contrasting textures and forms with an classic composition, and Em Kachouro does a nice job of matching editing technique with subject in “Fames.” And, while not quite a still life, Moments for Zen’s “Bearded White Iris Flower” might just be one of the most exquisite flower images I have ever seen. He generously shares his editing technique for this photo as well, which is worth a look!

“Solo” by Janine Graf, is part of an ongoing series depicting children on a carnival ride. These images have been popping up in my various feeds lately, and I am always compelled to stop and look even though they give me an unsettled feeling. There is something menacing about these images, like all is not what it appears to be, and the toning, the blur, and the off-kilter angles add to this sense of foreboding. Fabio D’Andrea (fastcomet) achieves another masterful edit with “Remember to Breathe,” and Giancarlo Beltrame (Bobocinema) uses slow shutter to its fullest potential with “The Soul of Music,” which is also part of a larger, quite beautiful, series.

Rounding out this week’s showcase are three terrific portraits. “A Lover of Moths: Camouflage” is Damian De Souza at his creepy, surrealist best. “Where I End and Then Begin” by George Politis (_giorgopoliti_) and “Slow Ice” by Johnny Ecko (squarepixel) both had me scratching my head in wonder and saying, “How’d he do that?”

Congratulations to all the iPhoneographers and iPhone artists selected this week! And don’t forget, images selected each week are eligible for inclusion in upcoming “brick-and-mortar” exhibitions, so please continue to submit your best work and stay tuned for next week’s showcase!

Until then, happy shooting!

      I have to say that your shot of the bearded white iris stood out as my fave while looking through this week’s selections. Your shot looked mostly untouched and was just absolutely beautiful.

      • rjllane

        Hello Steven. Thank-you for those very kind words. You were right – it was pretty much untouched – I always find that a good capture requires very little in the way of post-processing – generally just a refinement of the cropping. … MomentsForZen
