1000 Words Showcase, Week 37

This week’s showcase brings us wonderful photos from mohsen_ch, devine1225aaa and Lola Mitchell.

Big thanks for contributing to our Flickr group, 1000 Words. We hope to showcase the great diversity and beauty of the work shown to continue to inspire other mobile (connected) photographers/ artists within our community. 1000 Words is titled under the premise that “a photograph says a 1000 words.” We Are Juxt believes that mobile photographers/ artists tell stories through the photographs/ images and art that represents their families, their environment, themselves. This is important because of the level of communication that is portrayed in imaging today. We look forward to you and your art. We thank you for your contribution to the mobile photography/ arts community.

I would never miss any opportunity to spend my time capturing the streets. I had a meeting ahead but there was enough time, so I decided to have a photowalk. On my way I came across this place which was a narrow alley with long harsh cement walls. It was about 3 pm and the sunlight had made a dramatic scene. For me everything was in its best situation to tell a story. My iPhone (equipped with Hipstamatic) helped me to tell the story.

I create dark images, so my inspiration for this work was a result of what I have in mind trying to cast my demons out as an dark artist if I’m allowed to say that. I took a wonderful portrait of a  beautiful Greek woman. The portrait was already a masterpiece, so I pushed myself to do a better job and make the pic even better; i like to challenge myself like that. So I put her pic into Snapseed and cropped it there. Then to Filterstorm PRO to fix the curves and blend it with my first layer to add to her head the crown. That spot to her eye was a random tattoo from Net. Then to Blender to add her dress and the hand with the blood. Back to Snapseed to take that grey effect from the Snapseed option Retrolux and finally I opened the pic with the app Artrage to paint her hair a little and here it is.

I have been loving warping, elongating just changing the human form, whether its a neck or eyes or mouth. I am also a stay at home mom and my kids are at a very emotional age. It was a particularly emotional day and I decided to see what my face would look like if I took a shot of a strong emotion and enhanced it by making my eyes bigger and my mouth as well.

I first took a pic with my iPhone 5 native camera. Used Superimpose to make my eyes and mouth bigger, went into Procreate and added the clouds and a few hair, icolorama to add some brushes to the side, then a filter in Laminar and it was done.

I liked the image I shot of an old barn near my home but it was lacking something.  The stable is on the grounds of a home for troubled boys and I imagined there might be a feminine motherly spirit watching over them.  I had just downloaded an app called ScaryCamera and found just the ghostly figure that would work.

For the processing I made a few adjustments in Snapseed.  Then I added the ghost image, some fog in the foreground and a grunge overlay using the ScaryCamera app. Sadly the ScaryCamera app is very low resolution so I brought it into Sketch Club and that automatically resized it up a bit and finally another filter in XNRetro for a more distressed look.

The sunset along the Willis/Sears Tower was cascading in such a fashion to allow this shot. It was actually at the height of rush hour, but I somehow managed to catch this commuter by himself.

Apps used: Snapseed, TouchRetouch

This shot was taken when I went on a photowalk with my friends. There is a beautiful tree and bench near my home. I asked one of my friends to model for me. It was cloudy and windy day, so this image seems lonely. It was shot with an iPhone 5 and processed with PhotoForge2, VSCO and Snapseed.

Looking for Directions by M_A_N_E_

This is Union Sq, NYC, lunch time. There’s a lot of food trucks along the sidewalk and people coming and go, it’s a busy time during the week. Looking for Directions is like that, people buzzing around as if they where searching directions. I travel the world looking for streets and people and trying to pass that emotions, feelings and sensations on my street work.As street iPhoneographer and I’m always trying to find new approaches and thinking out of the box. For this image I’ve used my gorilla tripod with my iPhone 4S and Slowshutter for the image capture. I love the traditional images of street imaginary in heavy B&W contrast, in this new approach I’m using textures to blend with the B&W. Laminar was the app that I’ve used to create the B&W and to blend the metal texture. As an active member from the NEM (New Era Museum) I’m curating one NEM action on EYEEM, of street iPhoneography.
