iPhone Photography Exhibition at OCCCA

Pixels: The Art of iPhone Photography


There was a great turn out last night for the opening reception of the exhibition entitled Pixels: The Art of iPhone Photography at the Orange County Center For Contemporary Art where I have several of my photographs along with four of my experimental videos showing.

This group exhibition showcases the best iPhoneographers from around the world and will run from March 31st through April 30th 2011. The exhibition will then move to the Arty Gallery in downtown Los Angeles during the months of May and June 2011.

The curator of the exhibition is Knox Bronson who runs the leading iPhoneography gallery site Pixels At An Exhibition and is also co-curated by Jeff T. Alu, Daniel Berman and Maia Panos. The entire iPhoneography community owes them a great deal of thanks for supporting and promoting this emerging form of photography. Thank you!


Death Of A Broken Heart Robot – Hipstamatic 180

I really don’t want to turn this blog into an “All About Hipstamatic app” blog, but it does seem to be going that way doesn’t (damn them for updating their app with cool stuff!)

But this post is more of a plea for votes. Not only do the creators make a fantastic app or two, but they run contests in which you enter a photo, people vote and if you win, you sometimes win something cool. In this case, I really want to win because the “something cool” is the chance to win a trip to the grand opening of the new Salvador Dalí Museum in Florida and to have your photo exhibited in the museum! I’ve been in first place on and off (even though I’ve had the most votes the entire time; their voting system is clearly buggy) and there are only a couple of days left for voting on my Death Of A Broken Heart Robot photo, so I hope all those who are reading this, that have either a Twitter or Facebook account, will please vote for my photo… I greatly appreciate it! (and don’t worry, the Broken Heart Robot isn’t really dead, he’s just playing around.)

As for the latest update, Hipstamatic 180 introduces the new Dalí Museum GoodPak (hence the Dalí contest) which includes the Salvador 84 lens and the DreamCanvas film (as well as a Dalí inspired virtual case!) Here are some examples of what this film/lens combination can do:


Creative Photography – Sci Fi Self Portraits With The Hipstamatic 175

So the previous week I explored artistic nude photography, both female and male, something I’ve been wanting to try to get more into. The results came out… not too bad, but I don’t think I should post them here (you can view the results on my Flickr account with your SafeSearch turned “Off”.)

Last night, however, was Halloween… and I was home alone, and in a creative mood, and strangely inspired by one of my all-time favorite artists ever, H.R. Giger. So I whipped out my iPhone 4, launched the Hipstamatic app and proceeded to take a series of Sci Fi/ Horror themed photos…


Creative Photography – Hipstamatic 160

Just thought I’d write a little follow up to my previous “Creative Photography” post. This time instead of getting all crazy with the multiple app processing to get a painterly look, I kept it simple using just the Hipstamatic app with the John S Lens and Pistil Film options. In the case of the “Diner” photos I did do a little bit of additional processing with the Film Lab app to tone down the colors just a bit using the Cross-Processing Americano effect; and the Pasadena Playhouse and Zona Rosa Caffe photos using the Cross-Processing Sandal effect.
