A Picture’s Worth… With Jennifer Bracewell

Share

Welcome to another new section to theappwhisperer.com, this new section is entitled ‘A Picture’s Worth…’ and it is a subsection of our Photo App Lounge column.

A Picture’s Worth… is where we ask iPhone photographers that have taken or made, as the case may be, powerful iPhone 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.

This is another totally unique section to theappwhisperer.com and one that offers the unique facility for the reader/viewer to find out more about an image and also for the artist to explain the complete process and message.

This is our third post to this new section, if you have missed the others you can read them here. We previously interviewed Jennifer in our A Day In Your Life series, if you miss that, you can read it here.

In this A Picture’s Worth … today, Jennifer talks us through her incredible image ‘I'm Done’, shown below.

(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).

The Birth Of A Concept

Copyright Image – Jennifer Bracewell – 'I'm Done'

 

I took this picture today while I was in the bathtub, feeling very frustrated after two months of house hunting and the prospect of not having a place to live come July. I used Snapseed to make it monochrome and add some contrast. Then I went into Juxtaposer and added the forks. I felt like people were poking at me from many different directions and making me want to hide away, hence the five forks. I then layered some street art over the top, the word ZERO in red. I used ScratchCam to add some texture, bluish tone and depth. Then I was "done" 🙂 kind of a cliche stick in a fork in me I'm done title but it surely fits my mood today.

The Process

 

We've discreetly not added the original image in this screen show, as obviously Jennifer was in the bath but you still get the gist how this image was put together.
