We’re delighted to announce within our Mob-Entrepeneurs section of the site that incredibly talented iPhone artist Karen Divine has launched a new photographic workshop running between March 10 – March 14, 2014.
‘Tapping into your own creative spirit is, first and foremost, a matter of developing awareness. This awareness allows you to bring together information and material, expand your mind, quiet the senses, and allows the unconscious to reveal rich imagery. As Rainer Maria Rilke expressed so beautifully in Letters to a Young Poet, “…describe your sorrows and desires, the thoughts that pass through your mind and your belief in some kind of beauty—describe all these with heartfelt, silent, humble sincerity and, when you express yourself, use the Things around you, the images from your dreams, and the objects that you remember.”
The iPhone is not only a powerful tool for documenting your life through single imagery, but also an excellent means of creating stunning composite images. Photographer Karen Divine has been making these types of images for 14 years, and she has recently transferred her process to the iPhone using a variety of apps.
Over the course of four days, Karen gives you the skills you need to create your own images and composites using an iPhone. We cover the basics of taking photographs with our ubiquitous phones and review the apps we need. In the course of taking spontaneous photos, we learn to see both the pictures that present themselves to us, and those that emerge when we combine several seemingly insignificant images. Throughout it all, we strive to develop the courage to ignore our inner critics and follow our own visions. We explore the process of letting go and allowing our creativity to reveal stories to us—all with our iPhones!’
