Mobile Photography & Art – Portrait of an Artist – Seeing Through The Eyes Of Jane Schultz

Share

We are delighted to bring to you the fourth in our brand new series of interviews within our Portrait of an Artist column entitled ‘Seeing through the eyes…’. This is a section that has been created by our wonderful Portrait of an Artist Editor, Ile Mont. Mont has been inspired by the life and works of Carolyn Hall Young, as so many of us have. Young was the main contributor to our Portrait of an Artist Flickr pool and filled it with portraits of so many wonderful people, not only of herself. It is for this reason that Mont wanted to create this section, to enable us to view the artists style through their own eyes. At the end of each interview, Mont will keep Young’s tradition alive, with a portrait of herself, seen through the eyes of the artist. In this case, you will see that at the end of this interview there is a portrait of Mont, seen through the eyes of Jane Schultz, what a gift!

Please continue to post your mobile portraiture to our dedicated Flickr group, that way, Mont will search through these artists first to interview. (foreword by Joanne Carter).

Print Sale Focus – ‘Rene’ with Helen Breznik

Share

We are sure we have reached many of you with details of our brand spanking new Online Gallery and Print Sales Website, if not, then you really need to take a look here and see it for yourself. The site has been optimised for both mobile, tablet and desktop computers. 

Today, we’re going to focus on one specific image from our collections and this is by Multi Award Winning Mobile Photographer Helen Breznik. Breznik’s photography leans towards the melancholy—but in Breznik’s hands, this emotion could be defined as ‘sorrow with a purpose.’ She utilizes her sensitivity to conjure up a romantic beauty in her images: images which are self-portraits but have a universal appeal within.

Breznik has always felt comfortable in front of the camera. When she is modeling for her portraits, she does so with music playing, garbed in fabulous vintage clothes. At their best, these sessions transport her to another world, one where her alter-egos can fully emerge. The characters are varied: a Queen will emerge, serene, royal, strong but with vulnerability. Or a figure drawn from the Pre-Raphaelites period, containing tragedy mixed with great passion and beauty.

Although the outward changes seem dramatic, she actually strives to keep make-up to a minimum. Her most dramatic way to change appearance is by sculpting natural light. With care, she is able to create deep shadows, strong lines, vivid contrasts, all of which create natural depth and definition.

Breznik first took up photography 10 years ago after picking up a bunch of old Polaroid cameras. She loved working with Time Zero film, which gave her ample opportunity to manipulate the images. When she heard about new smartphone apps which simulated Polaroid photography, she felt compelled to try them out. From 2010, Breznik began using the iPhone exclusively and her dedication to the boundless possibilities of mobile photography was settled.

Having used a variety of different tools over the course of her photographic career, Breznik concludes, “In the end it doesn’t matter what you shoot with…it’s the final image that matters.”

The photograph that we are focusing on today that we are offering for sale in our online gallery is entitled ‘Rene‘. We offer this image in three sizes, 16″ x 24″, 12″ x 18″ and 8″ x 12″. The prices range from US$140 to $282. These will all be printed on Fine Art Giclee on Hahnemuhle Photo Rag. This paper is one of our most popular papers amongst artists, illustrators & photographers alike. The paper gives muted blacks with even colour reproduction, and excellent detail. The surface has minimal texture with a chalky smooth cotton feel which creates smooth colour gradients. It has a delicate surface, so we recommend extra care when handling. Photorag is suitable for mounting but its cotton texture means edges can fray if not carefully handled.

In case you’re not familiar with ThePrintSpace, who we have partnered for our printing and despatch services, let me tell you a little more. ThePrintSpace are the UK’s most professional photography printers, that’s fact. You won’t get a better print shop over here.

If you’ve visited Photo London in the past, or are planning on going this year, all the images that are displayed at Somerset House, London, will have been printed and framed by ThePrintSpace, there simply, isn’t a better place and they have agreed to a flat rate shipping with our customers of £6/$8 per print, globally. When you view our prices at TheAppWhispererPrintSales, the printing prices have already been calculated, so the price you see, plus the £6/$8 shipping is the price you pay.

We offer multiple ways to pay for your prints, including American Express, Apple Pay, Mastercard, Paypal and Visa.

Your sale helps to support TheAppWhisperer.com and the photographer always gets back 50% of the proceeds. By supporting us, you’re supporting photographers and we support photographers – it’s a win for all.
