It has struck me recently how many creative and talented colleagues and friends I have and I wanted to showcase some of their creations and stories for you.
I met Jen on my trip to Nepal last year and very early on in our time together I was struck by the stunning photos she took. Jen was always very happy to share tips, techniques and advice on taking better photos. But it has only been recently that I have started to see her amazing creativity as she has been sharing her iPhone photographic art talents.
Jen joined the iPhone academy and photography school (run by Emil Parkarklis) over 5 years ago. She wanted to learn more about photography especially to learn the best ways to present her memories of her travels. The course was extensive and she learnt a lot about using her iPhone and editing the images. Emil has a private Facebook forum where the participants can share their techniques. Through the forum Jen met up with Rosemary who introduced her to an app called Superimpose and from there she hasn’t looked back, considering it to be one of the best apps she uses. Jen always tries to push the boundaries of Superimpose by trying different ideas and techniques and has been asked to do class on Superimpose for a month for the iPhone Master Community. Jen and Rosemary have become good friends over the years since then and when they can they get together to do photography shoots together.
When lockdown started Jen impressed me with her series of COVID19 inspired photographic art:
Then she showed a whole range of different effects she could produce from a single image:
Then came her absolutely stunning Ladies in Red series. Jen uses a combination of her own photos and free stock photos that she can use for creative editing. She also uses a combination of different apps such as iColorama app for the background combined with Superimpose.
Jen experiments with a range of different subjects and genres for her art, as diverse as the Olympic Games, Space, Jurassic World, Alice in Wonderland and Fantasy.
Keep up the great work Jen – your art is inspiring!
