Hi, I thought I’d show you some more images that I’ve created using my Iphone5 and two or three different apps. I’m currently working on a theme called Echoes in which I imagine what certain places or buildings would show us if they had memories. I love history especially that of Cities and how they have evolved over the centuries and all the millions of lives that have passed through them and are buried beneath the surface so I decided to create some images of things or events that these places have witnessed. Having some kind of project is a great way of keeping your photography interesting and focussed whether it be a daily photo challenge or a local history project of your local area, I find it’s a great way of peaking my interest in photography. Up until a year ago I used primarily a Nikon D90 and a Panasonic GF2 compact camera with about six lenses between them and I was getting bored! So I decided to sell both cameras and all my lenses and use just an iphone5 to see if I could spark my enthusiasm again. I might add that I’ve been taking images for about 30 years and the last 6 years as a member of a local photographic society so it wasn’t a spur of the moment decision or an ill informed one. I generally like taking street images and some architecture and also messing around with different editing systems so it wasn’t a massive move for me as it would have been if my interest lay in wildlife photography or sports! Even so it was a challenging leap but most importantly great fun. I’ve discovered a thriving and extremely friendly Iphone photography movement online with some truly stunning artists out there who consistently produce images that I could only wish to emulate. I leant to zoom with my feet and do some thinking before I started shooting, but mainly I’ve discovered the joy of making images again and the ability not to take myself too seriously and most importantly to take pictures for me first and foremost and if others like them, then, that was great too… so here’s some images from my Echoes series, let me know what you think, and thanks as always for looking.
