It’s time for another gallery of awesome iPhoneography and iPhone art. All works are chosen from Life In LoFi’s Flickr group. Actually, if you follow our Flipboard Magazine (and you should…), we regularly share iPhone photos selected exclusively from our Flickr Group.

I really like a good photo — one that captures a perfect moment, or tells a story, or simply captures the essence of the subject that’s being photographed. We all experience these moments. The iPhone has made it easy to capture and share them. Showcases such as these allow others to view and appreciate them as well.

I’m also constantly amazed at the creativity of iPhone artists and how they push the limits of the apps and the device. In our galleries, there are many artists creating amazing abstracts and impressionistic works which evoke a strong emotional response from the viewer. For me, in addition to asking “how did they come up with that?”, I’m also super impressed with the fact that these artistic works were created on a very small physical palette — an iPhone or iPad.

Life In LoFi’s iPhoneography showcases have always been about what the iPhone camera can do with appropriate light (and many times appropriate shadow) and some creativity. One of the freedoms that the iPhone camera gives us is the ability to shoot often and experiment on the spot. Sometimes, there’s magic as you capture and create the moment that your eye sees or your creativity imagines.

With a nod to Edi Caves’ old iPhoneOgenic’s Monthly Showcases, here are over two dozen images submitted to LoFi’s Flickr group recently by artists from all over the globe. This month’s showcase includes some cityscapes — both powerful and intimate, landscapes and seascapes, intriguing portraits and captured moments, some clever iPhone camera tricks, and a couple of visual twists that’ll make you look twice.

This month’s showcase is presented old school. We’re working on a better gallery solution. With Flickr, embedding in a slideshow the way we want to do it seems to be more difficult than you would think.

All links go back to the artist’s Flickr page, so you can explore more of their work. I encourage you to do so. Of the thousands of images submitted, it’s tough to narrow them down to less than three dozen.

And that’s the state of iPhoneography for December 6, 2015. Hand-picked for your enjoyment. Be inspired.
