Mobile Photography – Instagram TAKEOVER with @lee_atwell – Days 5 and 7

Share

We are so grateful to @lee_atwell – Lee Atwell, whom we entrusted with our Instagram account on 27th November 2017 for seven days after she was gracefully handed the baton by @pscyhephoto – Robin Cohen. 

On Day five, Atwell selected @christineobrienart ‘s image which Atwell described as “Christine’s wonderfully composed nighttime image, reminiscent of an oil painting, is captivating. It is beautifully layered with tones of rich reds contrasted with deep lush greens, blues and purples. The star-like lights on the masts and their reflected light shimmer with golden luminosity – wonderful work, Christine!”.  

On Day six, Atwell selected @louisewhiting to feature and actually, we also featured this as our lead image to our fabulous weekly Flickr showcase this week, if you missed that, please go here. Atwell goes on to describe this work as “At first viewing it reminded me of a sophisticated Art Deco Vogue Magazine cover from the 20s or 30s with the beautiful composition of the angled woman wearing an elegant black gown and over the elbow gloves. However, on closer viewing, the dress becomes a splashy rhapsody of black ‘paint’ with collage elements, that are set against a richly textured background – all giving the image an ‘Art Deco meets bohemian chic flare’ – stunning work and gallery, Louise!”

On Day seven and sadly her final day Atwell selected @jules4921 and she writes “…Today is day 7 and the final day of my weeklong ‘Instagram Takeover’ of @theappwhisperer . It was wonderful to spend the week immersed in your beautiful and inspiring images. I would have loved to have featured so many more of your images this past week – a difficult task to choose just one per day. Thank you for this opportunity, Joanne. Grateful to be a part of this wonderful mobile photography community you’ve inspired 🙏💕 Today’s image is by @jules4921 Rita’s beautifully composed black and white image of a woman within a window frame exudes intrigue. Her dramatically outlined partial eyes and blurred hand, surrounded by the steamy window, accentuates the mysterious mood.  Beautiful work, Rita!”

We are so thankful to @lee_atwell for her attentive and creative focus on our Instagram account, it’s been such an inspiring week. Thank you so much dear Lee.

We’ll be announcing a new TAKEOVER very soon, stay tuned for that!

Please head over to our @theappwhisperer Instagram account to follow and please tag your images with #theappwhisperer so that they can be found and featured!

Mobile Photography & Art Flickr Group Showcase – 3 December 2017

Share

In the UK we have a literary award of which, it is of no honour to win. It is the Bad Sex Award and each year since 1993 an author is honoured who has, in the opinion of the judges, produced an outstandingly bad scene of sexual description, in an otherwise good novel. The results of which, I always find interesting to read, notwithstanding the reviews too. Is it wrong to find it laudable?  This year one author and writer for The Guardian, Rhiannon Lucy Cosslett claims the thought of being awarded the bad sex award has inspired her to work harder, she writes, Many women are acutely aware of what bad sex feels like because, I’m depressed to say, lots of us have experienced it first hand, and reading scenes where a female character is in raptures the minute the tip of a penis makes contact will always lead to raised eyebrows.”. The irony of this award is that it is actually getting harder to award it, many have said that the awards handed over this year for bad sex are actually not ‘too bad’. The best thing about this is that it is actually possible that male authors are paying more attention to the female experience and what a great thing that is, for all of us. This week Mobile Photography and Art Flickr Group showcase is the opposite of a Bad Sex Award, there’s no self-doubt evident here, the result of this multimedia display is a groundbreaking thrust in the face of engaging the real world in new and surprising ways. Enjoy!

Thank you to all artists for submitting your works. If you would like your work to be considered for entry into our weekly Mobile Photography and Art Flickr Group, please submit it to our dedicated group, here.

“I started working with my iPhone in 2014, at the time I did not know that there were applications for retouching, collages, textures etc …! I was content with Instagram filters! The first application I used was Snapseed! I always use it as a basis for adjusting contrast, sharpness, balance etc …

For the paint effects I use icolorama, which is really very complete and the preface is very nice to use! I love to mix several applications, looking for combinations is an integral part of my work and it’s also what I like with the art Mobile! My work is very classic, I do a lot of landscapes and cityscapes! I really like using DistressedFX for textures and mextures for light and atmosphere! Formulas is also very interesting for some images that I put in double exposure”.
