“Thank you, Joanne, for your interest in my work. There are two styles that interest me, when it comes to talk about mobile photography: reflections and street photography. Both kind of shots are always taken outside, therefore, they could included in what some people would call “urban photography”.

As I have already explained in the first video I recorded for TheAppWhisperer, I love street photography. I love to capture the people that wander around the streets, especially their expressions, faces, and so on.

But there´s something else that interest me ever since I started on mobile photography: the reflection. I love to see the world reflected on different surfaces: water, glass façades, buses, cars, etc. They usually show us the world in a very different way as our eyes usually see it. The key to get a good reflection pic is to have a reflecting surface in the shade which reflects something lit by the sun light.

The picture I´m showing now was taken at the end of April, during a trip my wife and I did to Bilbao, in the north of Spain. As an architect, I was interested on visiting the building, which has a very interesting glass façades which produces lots of different reflections. I took advantage of a very clean car which reflected perfectly the façade. What attracted me most is the fact that there´s a double reflection in the picture, that is to say, the car´s metallic roof reflects the glass façade of the building which, at the same time, reflects the buildings in front of it.

It was taken on my Huawei P10 and only used Snapseed to edit it. The edit only pretends to enhance the colours and the light on the lit façade. Nothing else. I don´t like “heavy editing”. To me, it´s like using makeup on a picture. I usually say that “the edit won´t make a bad pic look like a good pic”. The original pic must be good enough, the edit just makes it slightly better.

I think that´s all. Thank you again, Joanne”.

“I am pleased to share my process about using apps and creating work with my iPhone and iPad.

I started working with blended and fused apps toward the end of 2016. I am attracted to them because they work in similar ways to my layered pieces to I created before iPhone. The apps produce familiar feelings as the sensibilities I express with my hard copy work. Blending, combining images and layering are techniques I have been using since the 90’s when I worked with xerography and started doing transfers and lifts with solvents. The apps speak a language I understand.

I picked an image from my current “Self-Portraits of a Woman” series. I was propelled into the series by personal grief, politics and a long photographic history of self-reflection. The “world” seemed to impinge on me and this was how I responded.

For this column, I did my best to remember what I used, as I am impulsive creator, often unaware that it might be important to know how I made what I make. I did my best to keep track.

With “Self-Portraits of a Woman” I am committed to using blending and fusing apps. In the series I confront who I am as I age, the fears and joys of an older female in American culture. I show the inner and outer me and what I care about. The apps support combining photos of myself and the world I inhabit. I interweave nature, cityscapes or earth elements with my portrait. Sometimes I combine multiple images. When I am watching the choices for blending I move through feelings about how I look, what I feel, and what I want to communicate. I am showing my relationship to my world and how I respond to what surrounds me. I use images to convey my presence, to say here I am, I am who I am and that is how it is. In my process of proclaiming, I revel in moving the images around and going through the choices until I feel a “yes this works for me.”  

In “Birthday Portrait” I combined photographs I took on my recent birthday hike. I turned the camera on my surroundings, and myself using Blackie one of my favorite black and white camera apps. Using Blackie I like to blow out the highlights leaving a wispy image or self-portrait. The blown out highlights remind me of black and white Infrared film I used to shoot. The two photos I arranged were of myself, and another of trees with my friend in the corner. I enjoy the feeling of magnificence, larger than life me, with the trees growing on and in me. I interpret my friend as a part of my existence in nature. Using her image creates a feeling of admiration and honouring for the trees and honouring my life on the day of my birth.

I use my iPad to edit my pieces. I used Painteresque, another favorite app. I like how it brings lots of detail and texture to the image.  It seems to enliven the information. Next I chose Mextures for a muted colouring, giving it a fluid color feel. And with all apps I feel like I am playing as I move through the choices of colours and the ways I feel as I see them presented.

In this image, as in much of my multiple image work, I play with and enjoy the back and forth feeling the viewer can experience, seeing more than one image, one coming forward, then the other. There is a way some information is hidden and revealed.  This is my contemplative, joyful, and sometimes serious way of communicating.

And always, thanks for TheAppWhisperer and Joanne Carter’s enormous talent and support for the iPhone photography world. If you love this work, please support her and the site”.
