I saw this first image as I drove along Fruitville road in downtown Sarasota, Florida.

I quickly took a picture with my iPhone camera and the camera recorded what I saw and what I pointed it toward. What caught my attention was the golden light on the side of the building and I observed an intriguing pattern of light on the balconies. I then made the second image creating what my mind’s eye observed.

In May I am offering another iPhone Camera course to help you make creative images of what your mind’s eye observes rather than simply taking pictures of what your iPhone camera sees. Register ASAP the April course filled in the first week registration was open.

Read the announcement at the bottom of this blog post to learn more and how to register.

Seeing & Observing with the iPhone camera

Technological limitations with the iPhone11Pro camera results in an opportunity to discover new expressions in an image. This image for example was made after dusk in low light. Phone cameras have a challenge recording images in low light conditions. This image of the dingy creates a mood that an exacting image made with my high end Nikon would not. The pixels are breaking up, the colors degraded, a technical issue called “noise” and there is a loss of sharpness. The result is that the image takes on a painterly look and creates a feeling that is moody and ambiguous.
