Mobile Photography / Art New Year Resolutions 2019 From Artists Throughout The World

Share

We are delighted to publish our New Year Resolutions for 2019 from a selection of highly talented mobile photographers and artists throughout the world. As in previous years we have asked mobile photographers and artists for their New Year Resolutions with an accompanying image or video . Thank you to everyone who has contributed, they all make great reading, viewing and are inspiring, we are forever grateful to you all.

One of my New Year Resolutions this year is to accept an invitation to at least one Private View Exhibition each month. Naturally, I do not want to attend these on my own, so I am inviting our readers to contribute to each opportunity by supplying questions for the artist I am viewing. The first private view I will be attending this year, is in early February, with Tracey Emin, at her major solo exhibition entitled ‘A Fortnight of Tears’. I’ll be chatting with Emin there, so please forward any questions you would like me to ask her, on your behalf. Another of my New Year Resolutions is to try to give each individual artist more of my time. That’s no easy task but I believe so strongly in all of your work, I want to encourage and help as much as I can. So, to each and every one of you, I wish you a very Happy New Year, with much good health, wealth and success!

(Editors note: If you have not contributed to this post and you would like to, or if you have sent me your brief and I have not included it here, please let me know and I will open up this post and add it and of course you have my apologises in advance).

Mobile Photography and Art – A Picture’s Worth with Luis Rodriguez from Madrid, Spain

Share

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 Luis Rodriguez, also known as Lrh Arquitecto to tell us more about his image featured.  Rodriguez has detailed his thoughts below, we think you’ll find this invaluable…

“Thank you, Joanne, for your interest in my work. There are two styles that interest me, when it comes to talk about mobile photography: reflections and street photography. Both kind of shots are always taken outside, therefore, they could included in what some people would call “urban photography”.

As I have already explained in the first video I recorded for TheAppWhisperer, I love street photography. I love to capture the people that wander around the streets, especially their expressions, faces, and so on.

But there´s something else that interest me ever since I started on mobile photography: the reflection. I love to see the world reflected on different surfaces: water, glass façades, buses, cars, etc. They usually show us the world in a very different way as our eyes usually see it. The key to get a good reflection pic is to have a reflecting surface in the shade which reflects something lit by the sun light.

The picture I´m showing now was taken at the end of April, during a trip my wife and I did to Bilbao, in the north of Spain. As an architect, I was interested on visiting the building, which has a very interesting glass façades which produces lots of different reflections. I took advantage of a very clean car which reflected perfectly the façade. What attracted me most is the fact that there´s a double reflection in the picture, that is to say, the car´s metallic roof reflects the glass façade of the building which, at the same time, reflects the buildings in front of it.

It was taken on my Huawei P10 and only used Snapseed to edit it. The edit only pretends to enhance the colours and the light on the lit façade. Nothing else. I don´t like “heavy editing”. To me, it´s like using makeup on a picture. I usually say that “the edit won´t make a bad pic look like a good pic”. The original pic must be good enough, the edit just makes it slightly better.

I think that´s all. Thank you again, Joanne”.
