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.
In this A Picture’s Worth … today, Alex Drozhin (Alexvisage) talks us through his incredible image shown below.

Over to you Alex…(foreword by Joanne Carter).

‘I work as an Art-director of a beauty salon, a make-up artist, an illustrator and an iPhone photographer. I work at different fashion shows taking photos and doing make-up for the fashion industry. I also create concepts for clothing catalogs and shop windows. This is not just a job for me, I enjoy it very much. I have been taking photos since 2008, when the first iPhone appeared in my life.
In those days camera capabilities were modest in those days and I had to process photos on my computer. Nowadays, thanks to modern technology we have unlimited possibilities , so you can take pictures, immediately do post-processing on your gadget and then upload photos on the internet. It makes things easier and all depends on your imagination.
It happened last summer when I was in Paris. The weather was very hot. As usual after my breakfast I went for a walk to the Palais Royal garden . It is picturesque and a beautiful place. While I was walking along the garden I saw an amazing installation. Suddenly It seemed to me that I saw a charming girl who was wearing in a light white dress. She was a blond with long unfastened hair.
When I closed my eyes she suddenly disappeared. Unfortunately, this picture was only in my imagination nevertheless I kept this picture in my mind and took a photo of that place. I got back to this picture after a year by chance, while I was looking through my photos. I remembered my impression of this girl and started working on my iPhone. So this is the idea of how this picture appeared! I tried to create the impression how it looked in my mind. I hope I could do it!
My wishes for iPhone photographers
I would like to give a piece of advice for people who make post-processing photos. Do not try to process Photos immediately. Wait for a while. That will give you an opportunity to mature your mind and then you can get back to your work with the photo, using your memory and impression. Thus, your photo will be come vivid and get more interesting. Keep up with the latest iPhone apps and you will always find something new and interesting. Try to combine programs, add your new textures and open yourself for experiments’.
