Weekend of Mobile Photography with Sukru Mehmet Omur from Turkey

Share

This weekend Sukru Mehmet Omur, an Award Winning Mobile Photographer chronicles his enviable journey with us. Upon viewing Omur’s text and images, the renderings of human emotions seamlessly weave into a graphic perspective. Personally, I sense happiness in Omur’s work and thus it allowed me to recall Henri Matisse’s manifest for happiness, that he created in the early years of the 20th century. Matisse was affluent so in 1905 he was bold enough to flaunt his happiness. He was ridiculed by Picasso and others for his ‘happy art’ but he stuck to his guns. Omur much like Matisse knows that happiness is a human right and he speaks up for it exquisitely.

Making a mobile artwork for me always starts with an event that triggers. So it was this weekend…”

Weekend of Mobile Photography with Cedric Blanchon from France

This weekend Cedric Blanchon, an Award Winning Mobile Photographer chronicles his enviable junket with us. Viewing his text and images, I feel almost as if I am observing an impressionistic diary, rediscovering the joy of photographing the streets without a plan or project, with Blanchon by my side. I feel the energy within the captures, each person within every frame is subtly photographed, visual clues, hand movements, facial expressions are given a meaning.

“I’m waiting for the weekend impatiently, I’m doing a hard job that has nothing to do with the world of art and photography, that’s why at the weekend I rest, I play sports, I play with my children and I edit a few photos or think about some series.

I have just returned from a two-day trip to Rouen, the city where Jeanne D’arc was burn, a beautiful city where I could do lots of street photography”.

“Moving visual art is not the same thing as still visual art. I love both. Since my film school education in the 70’s, weighted heavily towards experimental film forms, I’ve made moving visual images as often as I make still visual images. I’ve been making both types of mobile visual images using my iPhone for as long as iPhones have been around, now 9 years.

Retired now, I’m blessed that every day has a weekend vibe, so when Joanne asked me to share my “weekend” mobile image making process, I decided to share a moving visual image process.

Recently, Meri Walker and I took a short trip to the Ft. Bragg/ Mendocino area of Northern California to spend some quality time with some old friends of hers. Our plan for our return trip was to hug the coast and the northern most groves of protected Redwoods. Ripe with tons of visual possibilities, and traveling with another iPhone artist (iPhoneArtGirl) meant the creative juices would be flowing.

I cleared40 GB of free space on my iPhone 6sPlus for this weekend’s captures. Carrying a few Sandisk Xpand flash drives takes away my worry about running out of disk space, especially when shooting a lot of video.

Apps that make the most of my experimental film and old-school video art experience most relevant include FilMicPro, KinoGlitch, RollWorld, PaintedCam, Diptic Video, Videon, Imaengine, iMotion, Glitch Art, Dermandar’s Panorama, and Time Piles. (Legacy apps like Infinite Eye and Frame Delay still work on my 5s and 4s iPhones and I keep them for that reason.)

Along the coast, I shot three clips I knew would be well used as bases for moving visual art. When I’m shooting, I’m looking for simple events that I can convert into digestible slices of moving visual meditative art. These kinds of simple events are contained by static frames containing either nature’s movement or movement caused by the presence of human beings.

I enjoy transforming these simple events into various permutations, each with its own meditative qualities”.

“My weekend with Sando Botticelli

Assiduus usus uni rei deditus et ingenium et artem saepe vincit. Cicero said that. It means (roughly), “Constant practice committed to a subject often outdoes both intelligence and skill.”

Because I work daily in the communication arts as a writer and designer of print, digital, and video works, my weekends are often eclipsed with projects spilling in from an overstuffed week of To-Do’s. But on the occasional weekend where I find myself without an armload of project briefs or honey-do lists, I heed Cicero and burrow in the practice of new things and unexplored ideas.

When Joanne asked me to consider sharing my weekend, I was coincidentally researching inspiration from the early Renaissance masters for an Easter series I was doing on the  Resurrection of Christ. Her invite arrived as I was studying the classic, almost sculptural, forms of Sando Botticelli’s early Renaissance works. So I decided, in the spirit of Jerry Jobe, to pick an image and take you through my steps of transforming it into a contemporary piece”.

“My schedule is not 9-5, five days a week, with the weekend off.  I’m a licensed acupuncturist who often sees patients on Saturdays, so there’s no set time where I do mobile art. Especially during the winter months, I am not tooling around town in Annapolis, Maryland. But when I go grocery shopping, I’m always on the lookout for flowers to work with”.

“When Joanne asked me to write about what mobile photography and art I create at the weekends, I didn’t have an immediate answer.  During the week I work as an interior decorator but I’m usually a bit of a night owl, so I tend to do a lot of editing and creating during the late evening.

At weekends I’m often busy doing everything that I haven’t managed to do during the week: visiting customers, catching up on paperwork, doing the washing! But when there’s time, one of the best things about weekends, (when it isn’t raining) is that’s when I get to have an occasional day out with my family and visit local places of interest. I’m lucky to live in a beautiful part of the country where a wealth of stunning gardens, beaches and stately homes are on my doorstep.

Home is a tiny hamlet in East Sussex surrounded by country lanes, with views across the Rother and Dudwell Valleys. If we don’t have too much time to spare we can take a brief wander along our lane and through the surrounding fields and woodlands”.

Call me nosy, call me curious, call me innovative, call me stimulating, my husband calls me se.., ok let’s not go there 😉 As a Journalist I have an incredibly enquiring mind, I want to know everything and there’s never enough hours in the day to fulfill all of my desires, that’s how most days feel to me. However, the weekends are about to become even more fulfilling because we have a new section opening up here at TheAppWhisperer.com, called ‘Weekends of Mobile Photography and Art’. I want to know what you all get up to at the weekends, in respect of our favourite subject. Kicking us off this week is the one and only Jerry Jobe! Take a look…

“Joanne Carter asked me to put together an article to outline what I do in mobile art on the weekend. I’m rather a strange choice, since I am retired, and weekends are not much different from weekdays. When I was writing weekly tutorials, I would gather my screenshots or rehearse a video prior to putting the article together on Monday. Since I no longer do that, my schedule is not limited to weekend/weekday work.

So, in order to get into the spirit of a weekend, I’m writing about what artwork helps me relax. For me, it’s starting with a blank canvas and creating abstracts. Playing with shape, color and texture appeals to me, and learning to use my apps in new and surprising ways is always a blast.
