Featured iPhoneographer: Me

The good folks over at iPhoneography.com have included me in their Featured iPhoneographer section. It was difficult (but interesting) exercise to provide just 10 photos for the feature, and I’m very pleased with the results.

I’ve also had a noticeable increase in traffic on Flickr and Instagram since the article was published.

Thanks to Star Rush for her patience whilst waiting for me to get everything together.

Union Jack Beach Hut



Percolator Beach Hut, originally uploaded by Kimb0lene.

To commemorate the big Royal Wedding day, I thought I would post the only photo I have that features a Union Jack. I am an Australian but the Union Jack forms part of our national flag as well, so this photo celebrates my dual nationalities – always an Aussie first though 🙂

I went to London and all I got…



Inside the paper plane, originally uploaded by Kimb0lene.

….was a crumpled up photo of Tower Bridge 🙂

I took the original photo with iPhone 3GS and Hipstamatic but it was nothing special and there are far more interesting photos of this bridge. I decided to try a little bit of processing and used Iris Photo Suite for colour and PhotoStudio for the crumpled paper look. The reason I went for the paper was because of a previous photo I had taken of paper planes. It made sense in my head 🙂

Here’s a link to the paper planes on Flickr

Hipstamatic: Fenced in

This photo that I took last week made it to Flickr Explore and was also a “Faved On Flickr” from the Life in Lofi iPhoneography website. To round out the trio of goodness, the photo was also a fotogriPhone “Pic of the Day” – another flickr group featuring outstanding work. I’m extremely chuffed that one of my photos was even considered for these great flickr groups.

I’ve had one other Explore on Flickr in the past but at the time I never knew, and the photo was subsequently deleted from Flickr in the great iPhone sync disaster of 2009. So although I know there was an Explore photo back then, it’s gone from my archive and I have no clue which one it was.

Life in Lofi is my favourite iPhoneography website, as well as one of the best groups on Flickr to showcase iPhonoegraphy. The weekly “Faved on Flickr” is a great idea and the list of faves never fails to impress.

Hipstamatic: Spring Shadows



Hipstamatic: Shadow Of A Tree, originally uploaded by Kimb0lene.

The weather last weekend was almost perfect: sunny, calm and a very pleasant temperature. Whilst out walking all I could see were shadows: shadows of trees, shadows of lightposts, people, buildings.

I found the shadows of trees the most interesting mainly because a lot of them are still bare from winter. They created some pretty amazing patterns on the grass.

This is one of my favourite photos from last weekend. Taken with Hipstamatic at Southsea Common

Hipstamatic: Morning sun



Hipstamatic Church, originally uploaded by Kimb0lene.

I love the gardens of Portsmouth Cathedral, especially in the morning when the sun streams in. I like how the sun is streaming in and hitting the tulips, with the cathedral in the background.

Taken with Hipstamatic using Helga Viking Lens and Cano Cafenol film.

Percolated Daffodil (and Hipstamatic)

I’ve taken the usual shedload of daffodil pictures recently, but none of them interesting enough to be shown on flickr with all the other brilliant spring pictures. I did like this photo (original version), as it contained a lot of green background, with the bright yellow daff there on it’s own. I thought it might be a good candidate for Percolator and I was right. I really like the result, with the flower standing out even more and I ended up with a different sort of spring daffodil picture.

Original photo was taken with Hipstamatic, then processed with Percolator.
