I started following Jo’s Flickr photo stream last year when I was doing my 365 project. She is very active on Flickr and has lots of people paying attention to her work. She has a special “look” that is her own. Her processing is always fantastic and artistic.
Jo sent me the following comment; “Basically, I got into iphoneography when I realised what an amazingly versatile tool I had readily available, in my pocket, at all times. I love to take pictures, and I love to edit. Taking a picture is one thing, and the iphone can produce a really fine image SOOC, but what I really love to do is enhance an image, give it a unique look, a texture, some grunge, a twist, and with the iPhone you can do this so easily all from within the phone via the awesome and the numerous Apps available. And that is what I find so brilliant and love the most, it does it all and it does it so well! And it is so much fun. And it can keep me entertained for hours. Literally!”
As Jo mentioned iPhonography is fun and that is a major attraction for all iPhoneographers I think. Sometimes shooting with a DSLR can be too much for some people. Just carrying the gear around needs planning. Having a mobile phone with a good camera makes things easy and enables us to capture images we wouldn’t normally be able to. Many people use their mobile phones to take snapshots of everyday things, do a little processing and share it online. Others take it a bit further and create amazing images that continue to impress people, especially when you tell them you shot it with your iPhone! I think Jo does just that.
See here for an interview with Jo after she finished her 2010 365 project.
And go check out her new blog here I just discovered doing a Google search on Jo :-)
Thanks for reading and thanks to Jo for allowing me to use her image, Patrick
