For this guest article, we invited visual artist and art educator Lance Hewison to talk about his approach to mobile photography and how he finds inspiration in everyday life:
As a photographer it’s not easy to get a unique, visually striking shot. It’s usually only 1 in a 100 photos that have that special something, and that’s a rather generous estimate for me personally.
I recently took a trip to the city of Heidelberg in southern Germany. It was a mild and sunny January afternoon, so I wandered around, coffee in hand, and admired the beautiful architecture and charm the city possesses.
As I always have my iPhone handy, I decided to use ProCamera to take some shots. I snapped lots of photos of the city’s most impressive sights. Although the details of the churches and town squares looked great in the photos, the images were nonetheless a bit predictable and didn’t really say anything interesting. I felt that anyone could have easily snapped the same photo.
Sorry I would have to grade these pictures 1or 2 on a 10 scale.
Oh, we are sorry to hear that. To a large extent, creative work is always a matter of personal taste. Maybe you can see this series of photos as a motivation to go out in the streets and capture candid scenes – if so, the post has achieved its goal. Enjoy ProCamera.
