Mobile Photography – A Picture’s Worth with Anette Schmitz-Millrath


A Picture’s Worth‘… is where we ask mobile photographers that have created powerful mobile photography/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 we asked Anette Schmitz-Millrath to tell us more about her image ‘Co-operation’, one that we included in a recent Flickr Group Showcase. Schmitz-Millrath has detailed her thoughts below, I’m quite sure you will enjoy learning more about this image.


“It only took a little to infect me with mobile art nine months ago and it felt magically surprising to enter the space of what’s called “the flow” everywhere I go.

I have a passion for the 19th century and steampunk-era as well hence I have a number of such images in my camera roll. I love mixing styles and so I often incorporate additional elements from science or nature to build surreal worlds.

As the entry point to “cooperation” I shot a drawing from a book by M. C. Waldrep which offers many illustrations of that style.

I always choose pictures to work with by intuition.

From the moment I saw the original image I had a special relationship to that illustration of a man. It is untitled and no information is offered. I called him John and this is my first cooperation with John in iphoneography.

John is an individual, mysterious precursor of a series I want to start. I don’t know him very well, but I come to learn more and more about him… 🙂

At first the original image was distressed, then mirrored with Orange Camera – which was the key to a huge transformation of this fellow.

An already blended nature shot was added in Union and I superimposed some geometric forms. The last edit I did in Snapseed to evoke some deeper vintage sentiment.

Yea, the process sounds somewhat technically, but I feel it wasn’t 🙂

The above mentioned flow struck me from the beginning. The picture evolved by itself.

It even took me quite some time to get together which apps I used in what sequence to create it.

Basically that’s it: I intuitively pick a source image *then some magic* et voilà!

John – I was delighted to make your acquaintance! And thank you for being so cooperative.
