There’s an occasional artist in all of us that wants to be given a chance to speak. We collect memories, experiences and things that inspire us – babies, hangouts, dogs, well plated food, and, let’s not forget, some alarming stockpiles of selfies – on our mobiles. There is a huge playground of mobile photo-editing apps that allow us to tinker with textures, filters and effects, to make our everyday urge explode into an artistic pursuit. To nudge that hidden artist harder into action, here is some outstanding mobile phone artistry done by two iphoneograhers: Mansi Bhatia and Dilshad Abdulla.
San Francisco-based Indian iphonographer Mansi Bhatia is notorious for her self-portraits and her extreme post-production techniques. She recently won an honourable mention at the Mobile Photography Awards 2012.
London-based Dilshad Abdulla makes his portraiture so palpable! He reveals characters using vividly descriptive stills that are delivered using what is probably the best feature of mobile artistry – real time updates!
If you’re fired up about this thing, you can start exploring with a fun post from Mansi Bhatia on how to shoot and process selfies over at We Are Juxt (a fantastic iphoneography blog, by the way).
