But, if you know how to handle your smartphone camera - and use the best apps - you can turn your iPhone, Android, or Windows phone into a full-featured "pocket studio" where you make images that draw people into your story.
My name is Meri Aaron Walker and I've been a photojournalist and exhibiting fine art photographer for over four decades. As The iPhoneArtGirl, I use my iPhone and iPad exclusively to capture, process and share stories about my clients' lives and businesses and to share my personal experiences, too.
I also teach others how to do the same in local, face-to-face workshops and in online tutorials, using Hangout.
Remember that feeling of freedom you got riding your first bike? If you know how to "ride" it, a smartphone can provide you with that same kind of pure joy ... all over again!
With 40+ years' experience shooting, printing, publishing, exhibiting, and teaching the photographic arts in traditional ways, I'm both a skilled mobile photographer and an enthusiastic teacher.
If you need some compelling images to help you tell your story - or you'd like to improve your own mobile photography skills - give me a call at 541-897-0499 to discuss a commission or an assignment or visit http://joyofiphoneography.com to reserve a seat in one of my upcoming workshops.
This show is full of high quality work which makes it another shot over the bow for mobile art in this part of the country where folks have not quite yet fully grasped the potential of mobile tools for art-making.
I’m always grateful when Joanne Carter, founder of The App Whisperer, includes a piece of mine in these glorious Sunday morning showcases. This morning the gratitude is mixed with prayers for her speedy and thorough recovery from a complicated surgery.
We all get by with a little help from our friends…
