We’re delighted to published the latest article to Lola Mitchell’s App Nerds Workshop Column. This is a truly stunning article and we are sure you will love it, over to you Lola…(foreword by Joanne Carter).
So last week I did the unthinkable. It is not the first time either.
So here I go (breathing shakily while standing at the platform):
‘My name is Lola Mitchell and I mixed iphone photography and what is called traditional photography.’
Screams everywhere, undignified huffing…
‘And I will do it again too!’
I am exploring all the tools that are available to me and experimenting. Still doing mostly Iphone/Ipad only art but I love learning.
I have never learned photoshop and am planning on.
So what did I do? I took a photo with my dslr camera (which I had not touched in I think a full year!!), uploaded onto my ipad where I did all my edit.
And then I did some editing on pixelmator on my computer.
Insert shocked screams.
And you know what, I liked it. I also liked the result.
here it is:
I decided to document my journey into fine art in a website diary of sorts. Putting little tutorial for pretty much all my photos. At first I was going to keep it for my photoshop learning (which I still do not have lol). But then I liked the idea of sharing, and for me it is truly a diary. Check it out and let me know what you think. www.lolamitchellphotography.com
So hopefully I did not offend anyone. I do think that they are two different platforms and I believe they are equal in strength and possibilities.
They are different tools really. I would love to hear your thoughts on the subject. I was even wondering if anyone else is doing this out there. Maybe I would start a little flickr group of mixed iphoneography that would be featured on my site. Redifining mixed media here : ) Maybe next step is printing my mixed iphoneography and add some real paint and paper!!!! wow. (sorry being silly here but I actually was nervous about not only doing it but sharing. there is a lot of passion on the subject).
