Tonight's submission is a collaboration between @the_other_side_reflected (image) & @rationalambivalence (poetry) let's hear about their process.

Image edited in Snapseed using a combination of retrolux and grunge filters. ☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆
It begins
Like all of the most beautiful things, with
A moment, in which I see through your
Eyes, and you pierce my
Defenses. For what seems like
Forever, there is
Connection, building, those things that we
Will never say, are said, the raw
Edge of your need is exposed, the full fire
In this desire,
It begins
To spread across the distance between
Us, now there is
Us. We meet
In the middle, stand inches apart, my hand
Tracing the outline of your cheek, just
Fingertips softly etching a path
Down, along your neck, the curve of shoulder, the soft and tender
Inside of your arm.
The lighter the touch, the more it is like
Electricity, rippling across the places at which
Our bodies meet. Your mouth
Rises up into mine, we are entwined and
The sweetness of surrender pours between
Our lips, there is no more
Separation here, this is what it is to
Know someone completely.

Tonight's submission is from Marguerite, aka @libredelinfamie, let's hear about her process.

Let me begin by first giving a special thanks to MobileArtistry for choosing my art.
My reaction to the email of them wanting to feature me was: "OMG! OMG!" (A tad excited maybe?) I happened upon MobileArtistry by another account and with great appreciation for the art and artists featured I decided to open libredelinfamie.
Your account has allowed me to grow and take my creations to another level. For this, I will be forever grateful.

And now for the technical side, my process.
In the creating of "AFTER THE PAIN" I began with taking a picture of myself with my samsung 4.
I then transferred the photo to my iPad where the creativity juices flow.
I started with the "foolproof" app: selected contrast then automatic paint. Next onto "effexy" to create the blended feel with handshake.
I saved a few effects there then proceeded to "union" where I took one of the effects to blend it with the original.
Moving right along, I then went to "PS express" and saved it to filters:
1. Orange
2. Sepia.
Back to "union" again to blend the two filters on top each other to create the depth you see.
One final step was with the app "mextures." There I used guest formula "almost vintage."
All I need now is "square ready" to frame and my watermark.
Violà!

After the pain.

Tonight's submission is from William, aka @_william24681012, let's hear about his process.

I am more than excited to be invite to be featured by @mobileartistry To me, this feed has always represented true and very talent artist. To be honest, I was shocked to be asked to be featured.

I do most of my images in BnW. Because I think it represents my struggles and because of the challenge. Most of us see in color everyday and anyone can do color. But to have your viewer retrain their vision and to accept the BnW and still be able to pull out their emotion, their feelings or memories is the challenge.

I take all images with "Camera+" and edit all on my iPad.

It's very common to see a source of light in my darkness. Because, no matter how dark it is... there's light. I use a lot of fake space added in my image (as seen on the left and right). I always start with "Squareready", because I'm a slave to the 1:1. Then, I go to "Snapspeed" for all images. The fake space is created by the "Select Adjustment" feature. It's sometimes time consuming, but doesn't give it a mechanical feel. I also suck as a photographer and this helps me compensate for my sucking. Then, I "Tune Image" (sometimes "Retrolux", but not often), I select my level/degree of "Bnw" and close out.

For the overhead light I go with "Lenslight", because it's easier to work with and manage the light.

To finish up, I go to "Photoshop Express" (mobile app) to select my levels of "Clarity" and "Sharpen". Then, to finish I "Reduce Noise" to soften the image and any added flaws.

That's it and that's my typical process. "...my heart drop as I heard that he was 5 minutes from death"

Tonight's submission is from Valeria, aka @_soulkitchen_, let's hear about her process.

First of all i would like to thank Mobileartistry and the kind Mark for this great opportunity. Im very proud one of my images becomes part of a gallery highlighting art and creativity.
I love to take shot where human beings are present. I like to imagine their lives and i think they add to the image a touch of uncertainty and mystery. Since i was a child im a story teller and i love to invent stories, starting from very simple situations of everyday life. Sometimes i have already a story in mind and look for the ingredients to show it. I ask my friends to pose for me. Other times, as in this case, i find something exciting my fantasy and so edit the shot taken in the mood of the emotion evoked by that situation. I met this girl in the tube.She was sitting in front of me.Firstly she styled her hair in a braid. Then started reading messages on her phone, unaware of me. She was amazing , with something vintage, out of time: the dress, but also her face and the way she was sitting. So i decided to edit this image as if she was a ghost , or someone escaped from the frame of an old painting.

Tonight's submission is from Florence, aka @mabelmorrison, let's hear about her process.

I took this photo the night in an outdoor party. There was a white light
with music and that's why the personnages are white and almost unreal.
In this picture I use two applications Snapseed to correct lights and
contrasts and Duomatic to overlay two images and create a bit of
abstraction.Here a picture of the roadside flowers
.
It was a perfect night... I hope you feel the smell of the sea !!!

Tonight's submission is from Bridget, aka @birdettemurray, let's hear about her process.

First of all, many thanks to MobileArtistry and especially Will for this opportunity!
This image was a beautiful pose from a Chinese dance at the DC Folklife Festival. The dancers' arm movements were exquisite, so graceful and swan-neck/snake-like. I wanted to capture that grace, so I chose a photo where the black background framed one dancer's arm and hand, extended upward. I did my initial import in snapseed, fixed the lighting and tones with tuning, then toned down the too-busy background with selective adjust. I also changed the tones from color to black and white, then imported it into DistressedFX, where I used "half life" and "edgy" to add texture and soften the overall look. I added a little vignetting with the "rookie" app, then imported back into Snapseed for final edits. Then voila! I was done.

Tonight's submission is from Pablo, aka @pobz_iv, let's hear about his process.

Alright. This is I feel my best piece to date. It's simple really. I took a selfie , made a plain white background in decosketch, then over to Superimpose where I applied my selfie and masked around it on the plain white background. I then took Johans picture of the city and masked the sky. And put it on a white background. I blended the 2 images with the Lighten function. Brought that merged image to Repix where I added the Ravens And the Spotlight filter. Brought that image over to Squaready to make it fit in its entirety for instagram. In ig I used a bit of contrast and the Sierra filter. And that's it! I did it all in about 20 minutes. On Android phone, LG Optimus F7.

Tonight's submission is from Mia, aka @miarichart, let's hear about her process.

There are two photos originally that I mixed by using IColorama. Then I used Mextures to obtain the pink color. Finally I reused IColorama to give this shape zigzag to the image.
Thanks for your interest.

Tonight's submission is from Tricia, aka @tseabold, let's hear about her process.

Greetings Mobileartistry! You can imagine my delight when I was contacted by Mark about submitting an image to be featured by this artistic group. That delight was soon to be followed by paralysis when it came to creating a worthy image! Inspiration finally hit me in the form of a photo I shot with the Slow Shutter App. Originally it was a bright and colorful image but something about it made me want to take it to a dark and mysterious place. As most always, I began in Snapseed with a square crop and some brightness and contrast adjustments as well as a bit of Sharpening and Structure. From there I converted it to BW in Vsco with B6 and brought the shadows up ever so slightly. It needed some sort of magic so I added the moon and stars in LensLight. At that point I used blender to mask out the stars from the lower portion of the image. Back to Snapseed and used the Selective Adjust tool to dim the intensity of the stars just a tad. In my mind, an image isn't ready to post until it has a caption and often I like to use quotes from people more eloquent than I. For this I chose Edgar Allan Poe ... "All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream". And there you have it!

Tonight's submission is from Maria, aka @desertpod, let's hear about her process.

What a great honor it is to be featured on @MobileArtistry! I am grateful to the all the IG artists and photographers who have inspired me along the way. Until recently, I started posting on IG again after a year long hiatus. I’m truly impressed by the incredible artistic communities that support the work of some incredible photographers here on IG. I want to thank you @MobileArtistry, for the wonderful community you have created and inspired.
My work is eclectic. I love black and white photography, grungy and mysterious, and sometimes abstract and rugged. Thematically, I select images from urban to rural lifestyles, as well as portraiture. I do have an affinity for nature having grown-up in a rural part of the U.S. My moods dictate what I post on IG. In this sense, photography becomes a personal process, one of daily self-discovery. I am a poet by profession, and I like to think that each piece I create is part of the poetry embedded within me. Therefore, writing poetry and creating photography are one and the same process for me--deeply personal.
For this particular image, the photograph was taken with an iphone 5S and cropped with Picfx. I then used Snapseed to give it structure and to sharpen it. I also used the black and white filter, dark. I transferred the photo to Mextures and used the Jefferson filter to add texture and depth. The photo was transferred one more time to Snapseed where I used the black and white filter once again to adjust contrast. I did this several times until I got the right darkness.

Tonight's submission is from Kimmy, aka @kimmibird, let's hear about her process.

Thanks so much Yifat and Mobile Artistry for featuring my work. I'm a huge fan of your gallery and the community you're creating! It's refreshing to find other IG'ers who are not posting "predictable" photos and are instead using it as an artistic platform! thank you thank you!

For this image I took 3 BROOKLYN photos with i-Phone 5 and fused them into one (Blender works great)

street (williamsburg)
sidewalk texture (greenpoint)
graffiti (bushwick)

I make my own textures by shooting everything from tattered walls and sidewalks to close ups of objects to make them more obscure. Snapseed crops, brightens and adds warmth for all my work, also adding HDR on it's lightest setting creates a little more grunge.

enjoy

Tonight's submission is from Halil, aka @cyanliha, let's hear about his process.

First and most importantly I would like thank you so much to Mobileartistry for this opportunity. This is a really honor for me.

I like to show the poetic reality of a subject instead of sharing the pure photographic reality. For this reason Hipstamatic is very useful. I can show that how I saw or that I want to see… Hipstamatic's filters are quite sufficient. Thanks to combinations of the lens, film and flash, I dont need to use additional filter after the photo shoot. Of course, this also ensures my flexibility. So, I can give an additional importance to the stories that lie behind the photos. I think, I love to tell the stories, tales or they find me.

Sometimes, I live a poet in the photos,
Somewhere I feel the lonelines of fishermen.
Sometimes I tell a sadness story of a migration
I remember that I lost myself in a fairground
And than, I see a young man who is leaving his love.
But everytime, I know I am a drop in the sea…

I took this photo using my Iphone4S with the Hipstamatic app. The days when I wanted to let the weight of my heart. I saw an abandoned boat at the shore. I saw, it was helpless as me. Damaged…. I selected a blurry and textured combination of Hipstamatic. I used “Sergio” Lens and “Robusta” film. The result was better than I believed. I shared it… I think, the weight of my heart was disappear…

Tonight's submission is from Carina, aka @lillamys, let's hear about her process.

I want to thank MobileArtistry and especially Wilma for this opportunity!

When I was a child, my father's aunt Gina, used to play with me and my sister a lot and she was a really important person of our childhood. Today I have her old photo album and I love to play with her photos in my edits. I do hope she likes them.

In this photo 'An unfinished story' I have combined an old photo of her with a photo of this spring's Japanese cherry blossoms that I took during my sister's visit. I have used the apps #hipstamatic and #oggl for the shots, #blender to mix the photos together, #scratchcam for scratches, #mextures for the painterly look and finally #squaready to change the tone of the colours. I have put the different steps of this edit on Backspaces.

Hipstamatic awakened my old interest in photography and with it also a renewed sense of nostalgia. My first editing attempts were inspired by Rebecca @repinsk and her @sundaybluesedit. To take photos and edit them has become one important way to process my grief after having lost my mother to cancer three years ago in September.
Thank you all for inspiration, encouragement and shared love for photography!
