10 on 10: March – A Little Bit of Me and iPhoneography

I recently came up against one of those creative road blocks, and for a week, couldn’t decide what I would do for this month’s 10 on 10. I thought about photographing my day, but my day consists of a lot of sitting at my computer — editing, and I didn’t think that would appeal to anyone. It certainly didn’t appeal to me.

I actually went to the beach one day and got sand, brought it home, and photographed shells. I thought I would pretty them up with textures, etc., but I wasn’t feeling it at all. I had already committed to 10 on 10, and now it was the 11th..yipes!

Then…I stumbled upon Susan Tuttle somehow. I think because I’d heard her name twice in one week, I figured I’d better look her up. I immediately fell in love her iPhone photos…the textures and effects she used–they were so artful! She offered an on-line class on iPhoneography, and it was half-price at the moment, so I jumped in. In one afternoon, I stuffed a lot of learning down my throat, and with little time to find things to shoot, I decided I’d follow her lead and photograph me. Nothing too exciting, but with blurring and lighting effects, I thought, why not?

These are 10 images that I created off the cuff. I thank 10 on 10 and our circle of women for inspiring me to participate–to get out my camera (or iphone) and shoot, when I may get too trapped in my editing work, and encouraging me to simply create.

The hardest part was taking photos hands free! I used a timer app, but still, I had to lean my phone up against things, stack up books so it would be high enough, and then it was a lot of trial and error…a lot!

I look forward to creating much more iPhone art with the tools I now have and more that I’ve yet to learn. Please follow around our circle of women, starting with the lovely Suzanne O’Brien.

    Um, wow. These are stunning and so brave, I truly admire the self-portraits. Thanks for sharing the backstory behind these beauties, makes them even more special that you pushed yourself to create when you maybe weren’t quite feeling it. Such an inspiration!

      Thank you, Suzanne. Self portraiture is difficult for me, but getting easier each time! It’s a great exercise!

    You are amazing, my dear, beautiful, inspiring and talented friend! So glad you pushed yourself to create these beauties! You stretched and it paid off, without a doubt. Love, love, love! The mood and range of these really makes me want to linger… Love ya! xoxo

    They turned out great! I love the textured effect. Some look like paint. I found them very interesting. I love that you were able to use your phone to create them. I don’t have one but, I love the idea.
