Mobile Photography – Instagram TAKEOVER with @sunflowerof 21 – Days 11 – 15

We are so excited with our latest Instagram TAKEOVER this time with @sunflowerof21 – Elaine Taylor, she is a respected and very talented mobile photographer. Taylor has been granted full access to our Instagram account and she is doing a very impressive job. We are very proud of her!

On Day 11 @sunflowerof21 highlighted the work of @adrianmcgarry – Adrian McGarry and she writes “I was very happy to stumble upon this fantastic image on the #theappwhisperer tag. It’s atmospheric and dramatic, but also calming and dreamy. I can almost hear the waves and smell the sea when I look at it. What a beautiful image! ~ @sunflowerof21″

On Day 12 @sunflowerof21 highlighted the work of @_soulkitchen_ – Valeria Cammareri and she writes, “Hello. @sunflowerof21 here with my next selection from the #theappwhisperer tag. Valeria is a brilliant mobile photographer and storyteller. I particularly love her black & white images, and the way she captures light & shadows. Here’s a great example. Head to her profile to see more fabulous images”.

On Day 13 @sunflowerof21 highlighted the work of @pictrola – Todd Leban and she writes, “@sunflowerof21 here with another selection from the #theappwhisperer tag. When I saw this image on the tag earlier today, I immediately recognised it as Todd’s and pounced on it. Todd doesn’t post often, but when he does it’s always well worth the wait. He does still life like no other. His photos are not just a random collection of things neatly arranged within a frame. They are deliberate, beautiful, unique and creative. They have life and meaning. They have stories. Please go to the original post in Todd’s profile to read the backstory to this image and enjoy the rest of his amazing work”.

On Day 14 @sunflowerof21 highlighted the work of @clixit2020 – Clint Cline and she writes, “I’m really chuffed to be able to highlight the work of @clixit2020 as part of my #theappwhisperer takeover. Every time I see one of Clint’s powerful abstract images, I wish I had created it. I love the colours, shapes and balance in his work. Like @pictola’s work, which I featured yesterday, each of his image tells a story and evokes emotion.  I absolutely adore his work. If you’re not familiar with it, please check it out. ~ @sunflowerof21″

On Day 15 @sunflowerof21 highlighted the work of @manuelamatosmonteiro – Manuela Monteiro and she writes, “Manuela’s most recent post on the #theappwhisperer tag caught my eye today, and that led me on a very enjoyable journey through her Instagram feed. I simply had to feature her work, but choosing just one image was very difficult – her images are so varied and brilliant. In the end, I was swayed by the muted colours and composition of this one. She posted it a couple of years ago, but I think it definitely deserves to be in the spotlight again. It’s a really wonderful image and a pleaure to feature here. ~ @sunflowerof21″

Please take a look at our @TheAppWhisperer Instagram account to follow all the goings on and please also tag your images with #TheAppWhisperer, so that they can be found and potentially featured.
