Oh, Winter's Day

Leaf_3

In a deep and dark December, the last bright coloring of life is remembered.

Thanks to Jerry @ Shadowhouse for his wonderful textures.

This was one of my first tabletop tests with the iphone and a basic guerilla lighting rig fashioned from an incandescent chandelier, a bulb flashlight and an LED flashlight. Each light source was filtered alternately with doubled wax paper, a diaper, and bubblewrap. It was apped entirely in the iPhone and only taken into Photoshop to produce a hi-res jpg used for exhibit purposes.

Hello BlackFat. I'm sorry to be tardy in my reply. This was a pretty basic set image, shot on a white background then masked in juxtaposer and layered onto a photo texture background from Jerry Jones (Shadowhouse). I did some color filtering in PictureShow and resizing in Photoshop.

Kind thanks, Glenda. Of the very few of my own works I actually keep, I have this hanging in my office...probably one of my favorite works. So pleased you like it!

Wow, Clint. I'm laughing outloud loud, reading your picks! Really helpful to get your input. I wouldn't have picked any of those... LOLOLOL... Thanks so much for taking the time to take a look and tell me what you think. Now, I get to sleep on it and see what to do. Just posted a new one today, Cleave, that came from playing a game with Brett C. Since I stayed up half the night last night making it, it's my new favorite...but, like I said, we love all the new children...

Indeed, Clint. And speaking of being a lousy curator of one's own work, I need some help picking four of my images that are my "best," that "typify my style," so that Dogsitter and some others can put something together about me here for some group called New Horizon's... Don't really understand it yet...And I'm stopped in my tracks picking those 4 images from what I've posted here. The children are rushing out of me so fast these last few weeks and I love every one of them as it's birthing...and I have no idea how to pick 4. Do you have a few minutes to pick four you like - or think are typical, whatever that means? I trust your eye a lot, Clint...

That's such a perfect analogy with children, Meri. And it's why I'm such a lousy curator of my own work...I will always see in them something others don't, and generally more than others will. Thanks again for your lovely comments.

It's such a crazy thing to exhibit our raptures, isn't it? When we hang the products somewhere - physically or online - they take on a life of their own. Like children do. Completely beyond my control - and often my imagination - what happens to them once they leave my body.

Thanks so much, Meri. I'm still surprised this has been the most viewed image in my gallery. For such a simple shot it's gathered a great deal of goodwill from the iPhoneArt community.

Simply beautiful! An epic sweep of the autumn landscape in one leaf. From life on the limb to giving life to mold. And the turning of the seasons, as from green to brown.

I am fairly new here so when your name kept showing up I thought I'd better take a look. Wow! This is sublime. Your attention to the spirit of this site is inspiring. I'll be making some changes in what I present here as a consequence. My name is Michael and I will certainly be back for more!

Thanks so much, Michael. IPA is a pretty special place among all the other IG-like sites. Real sense of community here that we guard jealously... Welcome aboard.

I saw this image in the newest Group, "Art Nature." So I clicked it and ended up here... read how you worked the lighting and am totally amazed at your resourcefulness--- a diaper?? A flashlight? ;) Wonderful!!
This still life is indeed beautiful and I love how you really worked to get the result! Amazing.

Thanks so much, Gara. Oh how I wish I had the time presently to 'play' like this again. The press of life is a cruel taskmaster and while there is always reward in productivity I miss the chance at exploration the more I'm away from it. I appreciate your kind words.

I hadn't read the manifesto! eek. Thanks for that Clint - I guess its the same on IG. Much of my stuff (especially recently) has been taken on my 3gs - its just handier. I'm finding the apps very addictive... must get therapy...

Thanks Clint, I didn't know IPA was meant to be 'pure' - where is this rule? in my mind a lens is a lens - does it matter how it came about as long as the ideas are great and the results are super?

Should I put away my Nikon D90? I think I'll be a lot happier when I get the iphone 4 as the lens is so much better.

Clint your work is awesome and I'm glad I'm your friend on here - I've only just started using IPA - are you on instagram too?

Corinne - While there are not rules per se that dslr images are not accepted here, it is generally understood that the art posted here is done only in an iPhone or iPad unless otherwise noted and I would suggest that 99.9% of what is posted falls into that category. I'd urge you to read the Manifesto page (http://www.iphoneart.com/pages/manifesto) to get a sense of what the IPA community is all about.

Don't put away your Nikon (though mine is gathering more dust than usual...), but post what you do with your iPhone here. There are many who are still using their 3Gs (I still have mine but now shoot the the 4).

The nature of iphoneography is learning to thrive within the limitations of the device as compared to a DSLR. When I began shooting iphoneography i was trying to emulate what I would get from my Nikon and all the lens options and found myself incredibly dismayed...until I began embracing the possibilities inherent in the iPhone itself and the apps that existed at the time. You can see that transition if you visit the first few early pages of my gallery then compare those images with what populates the more current pages.

Yes, I'm on IG (clix2020) but typically post there what I put up here. IG is a different environment. Here there is more interaction and discussion and a real attempt at art. You typically won't find a lot of snapshots of painted toenails on IPA...just sayin'...

Awesome! I love iphone apps and photoshop - I like silver fx too - do you think some folks have a problem with people using a dslr camera occasionally? I use my iphone 3gs (await upgrade next month!)

Corinne - As a general rule all the images here are expected to be generated in the iPhone or other mobile device and processed entirely on the iphone/ipad. Use of a DSLR/Photoshop is not strictly prohibited but should be noted. In this particular case I used photoshop to upsize the image and prep it for a competition (there are now apps which do this).

I also think someone has started a group recently for displaying images shot on dslr and processed with iphone apps. I just posted an image to my gallery shot in 2005 with my big Nikon but only processed this week in the iphone. I don't make it a habit to post these on iPhoneArt.com, preferring to help maintain the purity of the site for iphoneography alone.

BTW, welcome to IPA! I was (and still am) a graphic designer but like you have discovered the joy of being behind the camera rather than beside it directing other shooters...

This piece has stopped me in my tracks. It sort of holds me here and stops me from wanting to look at anything else. Absolutely stunning work.
