As one who loves to photograph other people, I still run far away from a camera if I see one ready to take my own photo.
So I’ve been experimenting with self-portraits as a creative tool instead. Some are cartoon-ey, some creepy, some very creative and beautiful, and others are for just plain FUN.
I’m finding it very rewarding and healing, actually. Here’s my latest work of art. It’s a little bit creepy and very cool and very beautiful. Love it.
This is a compilation of multiple photographs, including landscape photography, combined with self portrait(s) and the work has been created using both an iPhone 4s, multiple art and photo apps in-camera (in-phone) and then finished off with a touch of Photoshop.
(so for those purist iPhoneographers out there, this is not a pure iPhoneography piece, and not purist photography either, but ART, or iPhone photo-art … the lines have become very blurred with the rise of mobile photography mixed with traditional and digital media and it’s all very exciting)
I’m thrilled with how it has turned out. How about you? Give it a try.
