I am delighted to publish The Photography Show 2015 Flickr Group Showcase that I presented this week on stage at show – 24 March 2015. The impact it made on the audience is one I will always remember, they were totally mesmerised by your art and the accompanying music. The duration of this showcase is 9 minutes, during the time it played, the larger the audience became with more and more people beating a path to see what we were displaying and then staying, transfixed.

Thank you all who contributed to this specially set up group for the show. Many of these images were created new for the presentation and have not been shown elsewhere. It was incredibly unique content, demonstrating the staggering talent within the mobile photography and art community.

Mobile Photography – A Picture’s Worth with Caroline MacMoran – 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 Caroline MacMoran to tell us more about her wonderful image ‘Caught in Between’. Caroline 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 Caroline).

 

“Having just returned from a workshop in San Miguel de Allende, led by the immensely talented and creative Karen Divine, I was feeling out-of-sorts. Somewhat anxious, somewhat excited, and full of the need and desire to create, I just started working. While in Mexico, Karen suggested to try and create composite images that only included shots from our time there so I wanted to continue with this challenge. This image, Caught in Between, is a composite of three basic images shot during the workshop–not including the background/texture.

We were fortunate enough to have two afternoons of model shoots in incredible locations, and the arms and head, as well as the feet, are from two models during these shoots. The red dress was from my first day in San Miguel, before the workshop started, as we walked through the city and the markets.

Occasionally I’ll have a specific idea that I want to try and bring into being, but more often than not I start working with no real plan. This was the case with Caught in Between. I started placing images on my background, with one quiet whisper in my head; “keep it minimal”. This was unusual for me, as I often end up with many images and parts in a composite piece because I like the way the pieces interact and blend. Trying to understand this thought in hindsight, it made sense given my feeling state.

I had arrived home from San Miguel feeling so alive from the recent opportunity of a week devoted to pure creating, friendships, time alone, and travel to a beautiful town full of visual treats. Quickly, however, I fell into the hole of laundry, food shopping, work, and house chores. I longed to be back in a place where I could feel that sense of creative freedom, but felt caught between that longing and my place of comfort–my family and my home. I needed to just focus on pure images, simple creations that could slow me down and help me feel grounded in the place I am now. But I also wanted my place now to include more of what I experienced while away.

Caught in Between, though unaware of this representation as I composed it, is an image which speaks to my various longings. The red dress straight ahead, the arms and head thrown back in a dance, and the feet firmly planted (though tilting forward) are my way of understanding, of attempting to bring me back to a place of home, and to a new challenge. 

Thanks to Joanne for her interest in my work and for inviting me to express my thoughts. The image, Caught in Between, was created with Hipstamatic, ProCamera, Leonardo and Snapseed.
