The Whole Story
I've been contemplating creating an image or images around the subject of addiction for awhile now. It's amazing how addictions can make a person do things against their better judgment like smoking or drinking too much just to name two. When I speak to people about my passion for mobile photography, I tell them I'm addicted to it. I've also noticed other mobile photographers speaking in the same terms, so I know I'm not alone on this subject. I even take my phone to bed with me and work on images until I fall a sleep and when I wake up, the first thing I do is look at what I was working on and try to remember how I created it. With that being said, I wanted to create an image that conveys how the iPhone and mobile photography have become a drug for me and how I constantly need my fix. I wanted to give the image a somewhat dark and disturbed look.
Shot it with camera+, took it into Filterstorm and cloned my skin over the usb connector took it into lo-mob and used the tri-black film filter, then the Bleach Bypass app cinematic filter for the high contrast and vignette look.
Petyr Campos - A proud Chicagoan currently residing in San Francisco, CA. I take pictures of anything that catches my attention. However, I'm frequently drawn to portraits, life in urban settings and concert photography. iPhoneography is my passion and I'm drawn to it because it allows me to take a little piece of the world I see, manipulate it with apps and translate into something new and creative. I also love having a little darkroom in my pocket that I can take with me wherever I go. I usually create a lot of my images while commuting on public transportation.
