As I walked through the forest I came across this rusted out old car, colorful and turquoise … a work of car art.

That’s how I saw it, at least, even before I took a photo.

This was the coolest thing I had seen in awhile and I couldn’t wait to capture it with my iPhone camera and then rush to apply some apps to create some new art.

(I’ll post the original photo in a separate post so that you can see, the composition, color, texture and moment was awesome, even with no apps or image manipulation applied)

But for now, here you go. This wild piece of camera art gives me so much JOY!

(p.s. environmentalists, I agree, we need to get this junk out of the forest, should never be there I suppose, but in the meantime, it’s an artist/photographers dream)

As one who loves to photograph other people, I still run far away from a camera if I see one ready to take my own photo.

So I’ve been experimenting with self-portraits as a creative tool instead. Some are cartoon-ey, some creepy, some very creative and beautiful, and others are for just plain FUN.

I’m finding it very rewarding and healing, actually. Here’s my latest work of art. It’s a little bit creepy and very cool and very beautiful. Love it.

This is a compilation of multiple photographs, including landscape photography, combined with self portrait(s) and the work has been created using both an iPhone 4s, multiple art and photo apps in-camera (in-phone) and then finished off with a touch of Photoshop.

(so for those purist iPhoneographers out there, this is not a pure iPhoneography piece, and not purist photography either, but ART, or iPhone photo-art … the lines have become very blurred with the rise of mobile photography mixed with traditional and digital media and it’s all very exciting)

I’m thrilled with how it has turned out. How about you? Give it a try.

I volunteered my time to take part in this “full day culture crawl extravaganza” and to organize and coordinate  this one piece.

There were not enough submissions 🙁 … but it’s OK! We have to start somewhere. So, we had a great time anyway, after we added a few painters, visual artists to the mix. It ended up being “Elevate the Point!” with most of the participants at my venue, living in my neighbourhood, Ships Point, except for one person.

Thanks to the following artists for participating:

  • Don Cunningham
  • Brenda Johima
  • Barbara Legg
  • Laura Sponselee
  • Madeleine Wood

Totally enjoyed myself at 444-5th Street. One of the most rewarding parts of the day was having the young families come in, and to see their appreciation for abstract art and paintings, and to have the sweetest most beautiful little ones come in to see the art with their parents. I think that the Comox Valley must have some of the most peaceful and content, beautiful young children. Thank you to all who came by to visit!

Ever Feel Like Life Gives You Brick Walls?

On February 13, 2012, in iPhone Art, iPhoneography, by brendajohima

It seems like I’ve experienced a lot of brick walls in life lately, and healing comes from creating art, so I went on a search for brick walls, and this one I found was fantastic, with vines included at no extra cost.
