iPhoneography/ Smartphone Photography Presentation
No fee. Registration deadline: October 4.
iPhoneography is a form of photography that creates artistic images from smartphone cameras and special apps. This is a form of digital photography that opens new doors into creativity. The nature of this medium tends to turn painters into photographers, and photographers into painters. iPhoneography currently is in the same state of “newness” as digital photography was in its early days.
With every new generation of smartphones, cameras have improved. However, they are greatly limited when compared to advanced digital cameras. The key to this new form of art is to harness these limitations and create photographs that are based more on mood and feeling rather than being crisp sharp digital images.
Richard Lewis began working with an iPhone camera over five years ago when he was exploring other ways of making images.
This presentation will share his journey and show the possibilities of the art of smartphone photography through the images that he and others have created. There will be a brief introduction into how to get started in iPhoneography.
Richard Lewis has been a professional and fine art photographer since the 1970s. His earliest exposure to art came from the great landscape painters. Because of that influence, he calls his photographic style “Painting with a Camera,” which involves equal effort in both creating the original digital photograph and in post processing.
Richard is an active blogger and speaker. His work has appeared in print, on the web, and is in several corporate and private art collections. Over the years he has participated in group and individual exhibitions and has been honored with numerous awards and recognition.
