Otilia Coca, Mobile Photographer: Capturing Moments of Life

© Otilia Coca
What is your name and where do you live?

OC:  My name is Otilia Coca and I live in Madrid, Spain.

How did you get started in mobile photography? What device do you use?

OC:  I use an iPhone 5s. Generally speaking, you could say I have always been obsessed with the passage of time, and the ability to capture a specific moment, no matter how ephemeral or ordinary. Consequently, when phones started having relatively acceptable cameras (for me this happened more or less three years ago) I discovered the comfort of not having to carry my reflex with me at all times, whilst still being able to take a picture whenever something caught my attention. I particularly enjoyed the freedom this enabled, the opportunity to take a picture and edit it, no matter where I was or when this happened.

Instagram Final Challenge Showcase - Fave 5

This is the final Instagram Challenge Showcase before Art of Mob closes its doors. As mentioned in the previous article I still have a few exciting interviews in the works and they will be posted in the upcoming weeks.

It's fitting that this final challenge theme is Fave 5. Each participant was asked to tag their five favorite images from 2014. Rather than highlight only a few as in previous showcases, I decided for this final showcase I would select my favorite from each of the photographers who submitted.

The Instagram username is listed below each image. Thank you to all who participated. You made this final showcase a show stopper!

Art of Mob Comes to a Close

In July of 2012, I discovered the world of iPhone photography. Although it had been going strong for a few years, it was new to me - the possibilities excited me! Art of Mob was born out of that excitement.

Two and half years later I am sorry to announce that I will no longer be blogging here at Art of Mob. My personal life is demanding more of me than it has in the past and I have made the difficult decision to close things down at Art of Mob.

I still have a few exciting interviews in the works and will be posting them in the next few weeks - I will also be posting the results of the final Instagram Challenge - Fave5 on December 28th.

I hope to stay in contact with all of the friends I have made on Instagram and will continue to post my work there (@gericentonze).

Art of Mob will remain online as a resource and hopefully a source of inspiration for those just beginning this journey.

This has been a wonderful experience. I have met so many fabulous artists and had the opportunity to interview many of them. Click the image below to find links to all of the interviews.



David Pasillas - Capturing Landscapes with an iPhone

© David Pasillas
What is your name and where do you live? 

My name is David Pasillas, and I just moved from California to Medford, Oregon. I’ve bounced around a bit, with two stints in the bay area, and one on the central coast of California, so I’ve been able to shoot in a wide variety of landscapes.



How did you get started in mobile photography? What device do you use?


A few years back, I had a Nikon D60 that I had clearly outgrown. I decided that I needed to sell it, to motivate myself to save up for a better camera. I ended up being without a camera for a while, so I turned to my iPhone 4. It quickly became clear to me that the camera in the iPhone was very capable of taking great photos, and the added bonus of having all these great editing apps at your fingertips was awesome. And, if I’m being honest, I thought it was kind of fun outshooting DSLR users with my iPhone. It was a new challenge. 


 Now, I shoot with the iPhone 5s. I’m not sold on moving up to the larger iPhones yet. Maybe I will, if the camera is dramatically better in the next model.

Announcing New Instagram Challenge - Fave 5

What were your favorite five images for 2014? The Instagram challenge theme for this week is Fave 5. Out of all of the images you shot and edited this year what were your favorite five? Tag them to the weekly challenge using #aom_Fave5. I'll post the showcase on Sunday, December 28th. So...hit me with your best shots!



Here are five of my favorites. It's really hard to choose five and I'm sure if I picked them tomorrow I would select five different ones, but each of these I still find pleasing. Often, after I have edited an image I think of dozens of things I would have done differently, with these, I am satisfied. There is one more I really like (The Blue Violin), but I already talked about that one at Mobiography


The image below was created from several different faces, collaging them together as one.


Instagram Challenge Showcase - White

With winter weather upon much of the world, I thought the theme White would make an interesting prompt for a challenge. The beauty that was portrayed by the images submitted was definitely candy for the eye! Below are just a few of the gorgeous images submitted. Thank you to all who participated. You can view all submissions by visiting the #aom_white hashtag.

Stay tuned for the next theme challenge announcement coming soon!

The Dramatic World of Rob DePaolo

© Rob DePaolo
What is your name and where do you live? 

RD:  My name is Rob DePaolo and I am from Newburyport, Massachusetts (USA). 


How did you get started in mobile photography? What device do you use?

RD:  I was introduced to mobile photography through my good friend Chris Stern whom I went to high school with back in the 80s, but we lost touch for years until reconnecting on Facebook a few years ago. I saw the work that Chris was doing with his iPhone, so I started asking questions and the rest is, as they say, history.  
I started with an iPhone 4, but a year or so ago I upgraded to a 5s and love it! I have another year on my contract, so I will likely be skipping the 6 in favor of whatever model Apple releases next fall.

Instagram Challenge Showcase - Curves

“To see is to forget the name of the thing one sees.” 
― Paul Valéry

Here are some of the highlighted images from those submitted. The Instagram username is listed under each photo. To see all the submission, please visit the #aom_curves hashtag. Thanks to all who participated!

Share As Image - For All Social Sharing!


One of the tools I use for posting images to Facebook and Twitter is called Share As Image. Here's the description of Share As Image from their press release earlier this year:

Started back in March of 2012, Share As Image was originally called Pin A Quote. While watching his wife browse Pinterest, Adam Rotman noticed that people loved sharing more than just pictures, they wanted to share inspiration. Often, this would appear on Pinterest, Facebook or Twitter as images with quotes or text in them. How did people without advanced image editing tools create these? How could that process be made much easier and be used by anyone? Share As Image was born.

The Man Behind Mobiography - An Interview with Andy Butler

If I wore one, I would take my hat off to Andy Butler, the man behind Mobiography.net and Mobiography Magazine. Mobiography, both the website and the magazine cater to all of us who have a passion for mobile photography. I know how much work is involved in just this little blog, so I imagine the amount of hours Andy puts in to hit all of his magazine deadlines probably keeps him busy all the time. I'm glad he did find time to answer a few questions. Andy was also kind enough to include a promo code for first time subscribers to his Mobiography Magazine to receive one month's free access. Keep reading for details!


© Andy Butler
What is your name and where do you live?

AB:  My name is Andy Butler and I live in Preston, Lancashire, a small city in the north of England. By day I work as a web designer/developer for a PR and marketing agency, outside of this I juggle life between family and two kids, running the mobiography.net website and its supporting magazine (of the same name).


How did you develop an interest in mobile photography?

AB:  I’ve always had an interest in photography ever since an early age but have found it somewhat restrictive due to the bulky nature of my DSLR camera (especially when out with the family carrying all the paraphernalia that comes with having young children).

 A few years ago I heard about an app called Instagram but at the time I was an Android user so the app wasn't available to me. One day in the summer of 2012 I was sat in the garden whiling away the time, I searched for the app once more, this time it was there. I installed it and was hooked. From then on I was shooting with my mobile phone and found it so much more liberating than using my DSLR.

Ultramask - Abstract Overlay App Giveaway

The developers of Ultramask ($0.99 in the App Store) were kind enough to contact me to offer promo codes for their new app. Ultramask offers 22 angular designs to combine with your images. The patterns can be adjusted to black or white and the opacity can be adjusted. You can also invert the pattern.

The makers of the app have this to say about it:

“We believe that encouraging creativity in people brings new ideas and diversity into the world,” says Eugene Valuev, founder of Ultralab. “That’s why we’ve created the Ultramask app in collaboration with promising artists. We hope that by introducing our users to the latest trends in digital art we’ll prompt them to create their own art peices.”

The Dreamy World of Mobile Photographer Jesper Bülow

© Jesper Bülow
What is your name and where do you live? 

JB:  My name is Jesper Bülow and I live in the countryside in Sweden.


How did you get started in mobile photography? What device do you use?

JB:  I have been photographing on and off for the last twenty years. A couple of years ago I got sort of numb. I used a professional SLR with a lot of lenses and everything. It got too technical and I got lost in all the choices. Then I started to take photos with my iPhone. I used the native camera and got my focus back on the actual photos, not the lens choices and depth of field and such. The simplicity was a relief. I stick to square format and do not use zoom and therefore have to make the most of what I capture. Soon I discovered the fun in using apps for editing and since I am a lousy photographer, I developed certain skills in editing to hide my weakness…And now I am hooked on mobile photography and editing.

Mob Street No. 10

“If a photographer cares about the people before the lens and is compassionate, much is given. It is the photographer, not the camera, that is the instrument.” ~ Eve Arnold

Welcome to the tenth edition of the Mob Street showcase. The other day my daughter-in-law asked me what the MOB stands for, so if you're new here, I should explain that Art of Mob is short for Art of Mobile Photography. Mobile photography refers to all images shot and edited entirely with a smartphone, tablet or other mobile device or a combination of any of those devices.

Mob Street is a Flickr Group devoted to mobile photographers who enjoy shooting street photography. Please join us! 

Below is a showcase of some of the images submitted since the last Mob Street Showcase. You can visit the previous showcases by clicking on the Mob Street tab at the top of this page.

Instagram Challenge Showcase - Nature

A few years ago, I began work on a book that was never finished. The working title was "A Garden Path to Wisdom". I wrote the introduction and several chapters but never did complete it. Seeing all of the images submitted to the Nature Challenge this week made me think of that book and I went back and re-read my introduction which I'd like to share with you here. 


“Mother Nature” – a name we give to the natural world around us. The dictionary defines mother as, “An origin, source; a woman in a position of responsibility or authority; to give birth to; to care for, nourish and protect.” Is it a coincidence that like a loving mother, our natural surroundings when observed can provide valuable guidance for our own life? Could there be buried beneath the apparent order in our universe divine lessons for living?  
I sense a deep connection when I am in nature – a connection with something other than myself and my own thoughts. For a moment, it seems that I touch the eternal and the infinite. In life’s most difficult moments, I have sought refuge outdoors – to ponder a sunset or silently watch the rhythmic pounding of the surf. There is a clarity that comes. Not even asking questions, I receive answers. If these answers have come by chance, what could I discover on purpose? What lessons would I learn if I stopped long enough to listen to the silence and screams of Mother Nature? 
In my early life, I would have characterized myself as religious – now I choose to call myself spiritual. I believe in a divine intelligence that has created order in our universe (I call this divine intelligence God). I believe this intelligence is also the origin and essence of love. Using those two tenets as my basic philosophy, I believe that by witnessing our natural surroundings we can learn valuable lessons about life and how it should be lived. Revelation should be apparent to the very simple and unlearned as well as the highly educated and economically advantaged, for this is what a loving and intelligent God would do – make the secret of life accessible to all. We can all walk the “Garden Path to Wisdom” just by taking the time to observe the natural order of things. 

Not much has changed over the years, I still find solace in nature. Thanks to everyone who participated. It was hard to select only a sampling of photographs. To view them all, please visit the #aom_nature hashtag on Instagram.

What is your name and where do you live?
JJ:  My name is Jerzy Jachym. I live and work in Przeworsk, a small town in southeastern Poland.

How did you get started in mobile photography? What device do you use?
JJ:  I began my mobile photography adventure a year ago. In December 2013 I won a smartphone on a television contest. I had a lot of free time since I had just lost my job, so I was able to do a lot of photography. For a few months I used the HTC One. Currently, I use only the iPhone 5s to photography and the iPad Air to edit.

Julie Hollow - Scenes from Down Under

Reflection in a shop window © Julie Hollow
What is your name and where do you live?
My name is Julie Hollow and I live near the small township of Bright in rural Victoria, Australia. I grew up in Melbourne and always enjoy city trips as a contrast to my country lifestyle here. I work full-time as a primary school teacher.

How did you get started in mobile photography? What device do you use?
I was totally entranced the first time I was shown the Hipstamatic app, and I knew that I just had to get an iPhone for myself. My first phone was the 3G and I loved it. The fact that it was always with me meant that I started taking photos whenever I saw something that caught my eye. I tended to just use the Hipstamatic camera and didn’t really do any editing, as I was happy with what it could do and did not really know any other apps. Then I was shown Snapseed and that really got me hooked on editing as a creative process. It remains one of my favourite apps, and the one I go to first up every time. In June 2012 my sister suggested Instagram (I had never even heard of it!) as a way of sharing my photos and that was the beginning of my obsession with iPhoneography! I currently use an iPhone 4s and do all my editing on my iPad. I love the feeling that I am painting with my fingertips. I am sad to admit that my less than 12-month old Canon 6D has not left its bag for quite a while now!!!

Mob Street No. 9

"The city is not a concrete jungle, it is a human zoo." ~ Desmond Morris

When I was a child before the days of the TSA and metal detectors, our family used to drive to the Los Angeles airport, head to the departure area and watch people come and go. We enjoyed the joy-filled reunions and even the tearful goodbyes. Maybe that's when my love of people watching was born. Mob Street gives me the opportunity to watch people from all over the world through the smartphone lenses of so many talented people! Thank you all for continuing to contribute to the Mob Street Flickr Group.

Please join us on Flickr if you're a smartphone photographer and enjoy street photography.

Andrea Bigiarini - Renaissance Man

When I think of a Renaissance man, Andrea Bigiarini comes to mind. Andrea is not only a photographer but also dabbles in other art forms as well including music and writing. On top of his talents he has a wonderful sense of humor and doesn't take himself too seriously.

What is your name and where do you live?
AB:  My name is Andrea Bigiarini, I live on the App Store but in reality I live in Florence, Italy. 

How did you get started in mobile photography? What device do you use?
AB:  A long time ago, I went to Miami and the 1st iPhone was in the stores so I grabbed one and I started shooting from that day. I mostly use iPad Mini for 3 reasons: Battery life, I have big hands and I don’t have to wear spectacles. Joking aside, I prefer the Mini because I have more control and more space to work.
