egmont_the_artist I know it has been more than a month since I posted last, making it seem I have lost interest in maintaining my gallery. Unfortunately I lost more than 1600 images a few weeks ago that placed a damper on things. Then last week I was in Los Angeles covering the LA-MAF 2012, one of the best iPhoneography fine art shows I have seen and if you have not had the chance to see it, I have been posting photographs of the event, including plenty of images of the artwork at my website www.TheiPhoneArts.com.

I especially wish to say thank you to all the new followers. Also a big thank you to you who have continued to support me and not dropped me during my silence.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend, Egmont

egmont_the_artist Today, while at my friends house, Monica a photographer and crafter, I could not resist capturing this image in her studio, when light diffused by fog streamed through the window, down upon her work table and gently caressing her many brushes and other interesting items. Shot using Hipstamatic with John S lens, Claunch 72 Monochrome film cartridge. Duo-tone converted to B/W to remove the green cast Claunch 72 is known for, then a very soft warm-ivory duo-tone applied. Over all softness using Snappseed ‘Center Focus’ dark, then ‘Drama’ dark for the final touch. This also my second entree for #stilllifelounge curated by@ikebana-jen and @annacox. The previous photograph for this weeks entree were chestnuts dappled by sunlight. Wishing you all a wonderful weekend, Egmont 2y

egmont_the_artist During a clean up of the backyard, I discovered numerous walnuts a squirrels had hidden away among the fallen Sequoia needles that covered the ground underneath the tall coastal redwood tree, including a several empty half shells. I immediately feel in love with their texture, setting each new discovery aside as my own little treasure. A few day later I set up a table next to a window for the expressed purpose of photographing the squirrels bounty. First I tried using a few old books as a surface, but it just did not look right. Instead I pulled from storage roof shingles I had collected from an abandoned house for the sole purpose of reusing them in a painting or as a prop. Because I elected not to have any direct light onto the table-top set, I used fill cards to help bounce back any light and soften the shadows. After about 30 plus exposures with the iPhone 4S, capturing various different angles and approaches, I felt I had what I wanted. While studying the images I had just taken the light from the window began to strike the set. There was a warm breeze also blowing, ruffling the leaves in the tree just outside the window, ever changing the light on the walnuts. I quickly seised the moment and started all over, taking another dozen and a half or so exposures. The breeze kept changing the appearance of the highlights and shadows on the walnuts. I went from shooting B/W to color and back again, using Hipstamatic John S lens with Claunch 72 Monochrome, Kodot X-Grizzled and Salvador DreamCanvas film cartridges. After editing all the images I selected the Hipstamatic, Kodot X-Grizzled color version converted to B/W. #the_iphone_arts #Stilllifelounge #hipstamatic Please visit www.TheiPhoneArts.com for tutorials, resources and the Weekly Showcase featuring other IG’ers. 2y

egmont_the_artist My part in this weeks theme at #stilllifelounge featuring Walker Evens, who influenced me greatly as to street photography and style of documentary. Wishing my American friends a Happy July 4th holiday. 2y
  •   egmont_the_artist @photoguistic Unfortunately many of todays younger generation have no idea who you are talking about. It is considered ancient history. I too have a long list but I can tell you the three people who had the greatest impact upon me, it is above all Irving Pen and his book Worlds in a room. Then there is Walker Evens for that documentary feel and Dorothy Lang. I also like Ansel Adams but I think he was more of a scientist then a photographer and his commercial work was a awful. Never the less, Adams had a significant impact on photography and certainly how we go about capturing B/W images with the Zone System and F-64 group. 2y
  •   egmont_the_artist @photoguistic WOW! My mother named me after a play by Goethe and OP87 by Beethoven, a score with Goethe asked Amadeus to write for him. 2y
  •   photoguistic @egmont_the_artist your mother sounds like an artist as well. 2y
  •   egmont_the_artist @photoguistic Hi Linsey, before she married she worked on the stage as an actress for a number of years. She is the one who exposed me to the arts at a very early age. 2y
  •   photoguistic @egmont_the_artist as for Adams he too was at the forefront of photography so I think his photos do serve as documentary and then art. I studied photography for a few years in NYC School of Visual Arts. I spent many many hours in a dark room trying to get the right look. 2y
  •   egmont_the_artist @photoguistic Concerning Adams, I have always felt one cannot improve on nature, only as we can present it to the viewer and this is where science comes in. Of course it also helps being at the right place at the right time makes all the difference too. --- Do I remember the endless hours spent in the darkroom. My background schooling is a few years in graphic design. I learned photography the hard way, trial and error, and completely self-taught. The edge I have are good compositional skills, especially when my mind is sharp. 2y
  •   blommie1 Interesting. Love this 2y
  •   egmont_the_artist #blommie, one of my favorite photographers and the camera and roll of film I placed on the book. I actually have used the camera to take pictures. 2y

egmont_the_artist Just ripping up a catalogue and reassembling it for the picture. Due to other obligations I cannot be at IG everyday, hope you understand. Never the less I shall check in regularly to like and comment. Wishing you a wonderful weekend, Egmont 2y
  •   egmont_the_artist @cecile_e Thank you for having stopping of at www.TheiPhoneArts.com website of mine. When you do have time stop by the FaceBook fan page by the same name for free resources and tips.

    You yourself have a wonderful IG gallery and I particularly like the consistency and your presentation with the wide white borders.

    As you have liked so many of my IG images and I also 'liked' numerous photographs of yours, this means we should be following each other and I will get the ball rolling and start following your IG gallery.
    Warmest regards,
    Egmont 2y
  •   cecile_e Oh thanks so much for the visit and the nice comments ;) such a real pleasure. I thought I already had pressed the following button - sorry! Hum I am not on Facebook though... But I'll read with lots of interest your blog for sure. I discovered it through @awozy that you festered this week!! 2y
  •   egmont_the_artist @cecile_e Glad you discovered me through @awozy and It looks like you use an iPhone/Smartphone for your street photography and should consider using the tag #the_iphone_arts when uploading your own images.
    Wishing you all the best, Egmont 2y
  •   cecile_e I'll :) but I should not used it all the time, right? Thanks for the good job you are doing! 2y
  •   egmont_the_artist @cecile_e Thank you for considering using the tag. If you go to www.theiphonearts.com you can obtain the Submission Guidelines and also see what I gravitate to. Also I prefer full frame square photographs but then that is the majority of your work. There is one image I had liked in which the image is smaller, Rencontre artificielle is that image and it is perfectly framed.
    If ever you have any other questions, ideas or suggestions, please feel free to share them with me.
    You may also wish to check out my FaceBook fan page, link on the website's sidebar for news, free apps for the iPhone ad other resources.
    Warmest regards, Egmont 2y

egmont_the_artist Yesterday I showed you Pigeon Point Lighthouse along the northern coast of California. Today's photo we travel just a little further north, about 5-10 minutes and arrive at a most interesting place, Bean Hollow State Beach. This small landscape is diverse in its geology. Here we view a beach not of sand but pea size and smaller pebbles. From the southern point I am taking this picture is very different and will be revealed to you tomorrow. 2y
