A Picture’s Worth… is where we ask mobile photographers that have taken or made, as the case may be, powerful mobile 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. We have published a few A Picture’s Worth articles recently, if you have missed those – please go here.
In this A Picture’s Worth today, Louise Fryer discusses creating the wonderful image below of her niece entitled ‘Flower Girl’ and the meaning it holds for her, over to you Louise (foreword by Joanne Carter).
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).
I have chosen a photo I took today, of my niece, Lydia, I have been promising for ages that I will take some photos of her, she is 13, very much interested in fashion, hair and make up. Recently I spent a week with Lydia while her mum, my sister, was on holiday.
During that time I decided to start a series of photographs featuring Lydia, she is the perfect model, she’s bright, beautiful and is interested in modelling as a career. It is great practice for me too as I’d like to begin using models to photograph rather than just myself for the many ideas I have.
So this is the beginning, the first photo I have taken to show of Lydia, we have been talking about ideas, Lydia is keen to move onto something modern, she already has strong ideas of how she wants to look.
This photo is my favorite out of the ‘Flower Girl’ series, it was taken with Hipstamatic: Lens Tinto 1848, Film D-Type Plate, I wanted to show her innocence, as a child, as well as her beauty. It makes my eyes well up, because I love her and it reminds me, especially after the difficult period my family have had over the last year just how important my family are to me.
