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.
