IPhoneography Friday: Cornucopia

October 27, 2017  •  Leave a Comment


This piece started out as a simple photo of a few grapes - four, to be exact, and was transformed using Snapseed, Distressed FX and iColorama, the latter two being my primary effects editor.  I’m also figuring out how to use Affinity Photo, which is more of a full-featured editor.  If I can do that, I’ll really have a nice bundle of software to use on my iPad.

Now, about this Iphoneography thing.  I think that’s going away.  When a painter  finishes a piece, they don’t talk about the paint they used, or a special kind of brush.  No, they typically talk about what the piece represents, or what they personally were thinking when they created it.

So, this is the last labeled Iphoneography piece.  From this point on, my finished work is “Art”, and not technique or equipment.

All the work you see under Iphoneography on my website will be changed as well, integrated with the other galleries, though I am thinking of creating a separate gallery and calling “Squares Only” or something.  Those details can be worked out later.

Typically, iPhone work tends to be completed faster than pieces I’ve created with my DSLR and worked on using Lightroom, Photoshop and other software on my PC.  This will be reflected in lower pricing for those works.  So, even though I may not label them as iPhone art, a lower price for a given size may indicate that it was.

Don’t let “lower pricing” fool you though - lower prices, yes, lower quality, absolutely not.  I’m using the same equipment and the same paper as my usual pieces and I print each and every image out to ensure that it appears in print as beautifully as on the screen.  If you see it for sale, you have my assurance that it will be top-quality.  Premier stuff.  Unsurpassed.  Uncompromised.  Perfect.  Five stars.  I think you get it.
