Mobile Photography – Instagram TAKEOVER with @barbaranebel Day 4 – 12

Taking in this post, I hope you will fancy that you can almost hear the deep praise, appaluse and embrace I am showering on Barbara Nebel. An outstanding mobile artist and photographer but not only that, a woman who now as far as I am concerned occupies an elevated plinth all to herself, as the artist who led our Instagram takeover throughout the Christmas and New Year period, above and beyond the call of duty, when I was very unwell with a delibating eye illness, which kept me away from all screens for several days. The stakes were vertinginous, her Takeover was for 7 days, and she’s still at the helm. Thank you from the bottom of my heart dear Barbara. Please take a look at the period from Day 4- 12 that she has worked on. If you want to keep track of all that @barbaranebel views and has viewed, please head over to our Instagram feed, here. Please tag your images with #TheAppWhisperer if you hope to be found and possibly featured.

On Day 9 @barbaranebel highlighted another very talented moible photographer and artist @louisewhiting – Louise Whiting and she writes -this is such a captivating image by @louisewhiting. It speaks to me, in whispers, of what we can become at the hands of an artist. Transformed into individual parts and pieces, and then brought together into something new, that is not us, but yet is. I’m a huge fan of Louise’s work, and think this image is a great example of what it means to be an “app whisperer”. Please go to Louise’s IG page @louisewhiting to enjoy more of her work.
