‘Untitled‘ by Robin Robertis – “Everyone in my family knows i love to shoot with my iPhone underwater. So while photographing my niece and nephew on their spring break, my other niece who’s father is a photographer stopped by and for artist reasons and loving her aunt she jumped in and i got this shot in Hipstamatic, who i am just now experimenting with.”
Back down in the Big Smoke!
‘Back down in the Big Smoke!‘ by Tim Hatton – “I tend to work with composition, so this image is very representative of my style. It was taken in London’s Tottenham Court Road Underground station. I was visiting the city after a long absence, and this was almost the first image I took after I arrived.
I first discovered mobiography when I lived in London. In a way, this image represents my ‘welcome back’ to the place.
The image was taken with the native iPhone 5S camera then edited using Snapseed.”
‘Untitled‘ by [email protected] – “This was shot in downtown Toronto. I was on a routine walk of shooting when I came across a building that had a backdrop that, due to the paint, I suppose, resembled what can best be described as “white denim.” More importantly though, the sunlight that afternoon cast a rather stark shadow on the wall that just begged for me to wait a moment. So, I waited for 2 minutes and my subject appeared.
It was simply a mood that inspired me – the half-light, the sole and confident subject – the attitude of the subject and the sun.
Shot with iPhone using Hipstamatic (Burke lens and BlackKeys Supergrain Film). A “Save Ferris” touch of Mextures is applied to the final edit – but it really does little other than tone down the contrast of the original. ”
‘Metamorphisis‘ by Mike Bowers – “My oldest son HATES having his picture taken so I had to sneak this one in while he wasn’t paying attention. The shot turned out poor, making it a prime candidate for a bit of apping. I started with Living Planet (Tiny Planet knock off) and then ran the result through Fragment to chop it up a bit. I then ran that result through Percolator, and made a couple of Glaze versions. I then used Supermpose to blend everything together, and finished up in Snapseed to tweak the results.
I titled the result Metamorphisis because the resulting image felt like it was in the midst of changing – swirling from an image of who my son was, towards the person he will become.”
