Hello Esmee, could you tell us a little about how you got started with creative iPhone photography?
I used to take pictures of my girl or snapshots on holidays, but never thought to edit them until I got my iPhone. All the apps!!
What happened next? How did you develop as an iPhone photographer?
I found Instagram, and discovered that I liked the heavily edited pics best, grainy effects and faux lomo and all. That really inspired me to experiment. I lost count of the amount of apps I tried ;) Then I signed up for online photography courses with Susannah Conway, Bindu Wiles and Vivienne McMaster where I met lots of wonderful people and more or less found my artistic voice.
Could you tell us more about your creative process behind your Sophisticated Doodle?
I really loved your Creative Jumpstart! It was great to start out with something so simple and just see where it takes me. I took the pictures with my iphone and edited them on my iPad (I need glasses so a bigger screen is wonderful for editing) with Laminar. Mostly I just play around with the settings and effects and save every stage. Then I layer the saved versions to create more depth. Simple, but great fun!
What would be your advice to someone who's just starting out as a creative iPhone photographer?
