Elaine Wilcox

Elaina Wilcox work can be found on iPhone Art (myshutterrocks). The link is here “HERE”. Her work can be described as ethereal and abstract with a bit of spiritual essence. Elaine’s work totally eludes me with utter AWE !!! Let’s get started with her blog…

1. What’s the top 10 apps you use the most ?
Photoshop Touch
Photo Wizard
Tiny Planets
Iris touch/retouch
Photostudio FX

2. Do you listen to music when you shoot your photos & when you edit them ?
*Yes, I love to listen to music while I edit. I use Pandora a lot!

3. Who are your influences ?
*My influences are iPhone artists- Sara Tune, Max T Frame, & Luxtra & Roger Guetta amount many others!

4. Where do you photograph ? What do you like to photograph ? Why do you like to photograph ?
*I shoot anywhere & everywhere. My phone is always in my pocket or close at hand. I love to photograph ordinary items and transform them into abstract works of art. I also love to photograph women. Women’s facial expressions and emotions are almost always unconcealed,and changing. Most Women are open to sharing their experiences and emotions honestly. That makes for a fascinating subject to photograph.

5. While editing what goes through your mind ? Do you think about things going on with you life or just edit ?
*While editing I am thinking about the creative task at hand.

6. Anything else you would like to add about yourself and life.
*Love photography of all types, but the easy and creative freedom of mobile photography has opened up a whole new element of artistic expression. When you can shoot, edit and post from anywhere in the world, that opens the door for a huge artistic movement to move into the forefront of the art world.

Apps used:
Snapseed, Photoshop touch,Photo wizard.
First, I ran this image through Snapseed to adjust saturation,clarity and contrast. I then took it into photo wizard and used the gaussian blur at a radius of 2. I then put in through the whirl filter of PW at a angle of 2.9. I then put into into PST and duplicated the layer,I used the FX filter on sleepy hollow followed by sharpen. last, I set the blend mode on overlay and cropped it out square.

Beauty and Pain Coexists

Beauty and Pain Coexists
Apps used:
Snapseed PST, & iris
First I took a photo of a sculpture I saw down in Long beach ca. A few days later, I was walking in LA and I saw a bullet hole in a glass window. I snapped a photo and saved it to my camera roll.
I went home and ran the sculpture image through Snapseed to do the basic adjustments- saturation, clarity and brightness. I then put it into Iris using the vintage filter at 35 followed by the classic grunge filter. Last I put the finished sculpture image into PST and blended it with the bullet hole shot using the overlay mode, I brightened up the highlights in the bullet shot and laid it over the sculpture.I then used the soft skin filter to soften up and blur the blended images, and last I took it into the adjustment setting and set the saturation slider at halfway. And the contrast at a quarter.I saved it at max res.

The Most Magical Day

Apps used:
Photoshop touch and photo wizard
I took this photo with my iPhone 5 at LACMA in LA. the boy was inside of a Life size art installation of yellow tubes hanging from a metal frame. First, I put the image in Photo Wizard and adjusted the contrast to 18, brightness at 7 and exposure at 5. I then put it into the bokeh filter on the 3 setting. I then used the light bloom filter on Yellow, and the last adjustment in the photo wizard app was the hot wax filter set at low. I then put the edited image into photoshop touch and adjusted the brightness to 17 and contrast to 12. I duplicated the layer and set blend mode to multiply. I saved AT&T highest res.
