“I usually shoot with my IPhone’s or Huawei´s nativa camera. I´m not used to controlling parameters before shooting, so both native cameras work fine for me. I use photo apps mainly for the post-process of edition. 

I don´t like heaving editing on the pictures I shoot. I have often said that heavy editing is like putting make-up, I doesn’t make the original pic better, it just makes it look better. If the original picture is not good, it won´t be better after too much editing. I normally adjust basic parameters like light, ambience, contrast and saturation. 

So, here are my top 5 photo apps:”…

Mobile Photography – A Picture’s Worth with Luis Rodriquez / Lrh Arquitecto – TheAppWhisperer

Share

A Picture’s Worth‘… is where we ask mobile photographers that have created powerful mobile photography/art to explain the processes they took. This includes their initial thoughts as to what they wanted to create, why they wanted to create it, how they created it, including all apps used and what they wanted to convey. We also ask these incredible artists to explain their emotions and how the image projects those feelings. We have published a few A Picture’s Worth articles recently, if you have missed those – please go here.

In this A Picture’s Worth today we asked Luis Rodriquez (@luisonrh)/Lrh Arquitecto to explain more about his wonderful capture ‘A Real Smiling Beauty’ – Luis has explained eloquently all we wanted to know. We think you will enjoy this very much.

If you would like to contribute to this section or if you have seen an image that you would like to learn more about, just email Joanne@theappwhisperer.com and we will get it all set up). Foreword by Joanne Carter (over to you Luis).

 

“When I started being a mobile photography, I did not care much about “street photography”. As an architect, I was more interested in capturing Madrid, the city I live in, and its streets. I loved, and still do, to watch the world through its images reflected on different surfaces: buildings’ glass façades, buses’ and car’s windows and on the water of puddles.

But little by little, as I daily started to watch hundreds of pics, my interest for “street photography” grew, and I can now say that it is my main interest as a mobile photographer. My eye has became very sharp and pays attention to what goes around me when I stroll the streets. I always walk around holding my iPhone in my hand, unblocked, ready to shoot.

When I shoot “street photography”, I normally use the Hisptamatic app. I love it, even though I would like it to use the 4:3 format instead of the 1:1. The pics I shoot in the street are always in black and white. I normally use the combo Jane + BlacKeys SuperGrain, but I have recently discovered that the combo Tynto1884 + CType Plate is also great. And I have discovered it by chance, when after a shooting session with my daughters, I forgot to change to Jane + BKS and started shooting pics with it. I loved the tones and colors so much, that I’m now using both. Apart from that, the result is always a surprise, because you never know what parts of the photograph will be in focus, and which ones out of focus.

So, when I was on my way to fetch my daughters at school and passed by this green grocers shop and saw this beautiful woman buying some fruit and smiling at the seller, I did not hesitate and shot. I loved what I saw from outside the shop: the beautiful woman, the grapes, and the reflection of the buildings on the glass. The result was a beautiful composition, in which the woman was in focus, the grapes a little out of it, and the reflection of the buildings in front totally out of focus, which helps the observer not to get distracted from the main goal of the photo, the woman.

The only edit I did to the pic was to crop the frame with Snapseed. Colors and tones are the result of using the combo I mentioned above, and the goal was perfectly achieved, and that was to show the beautiful smile of this woman as I watched her form outside”.
