With iPhoneography, the process helps drives the vision
Fonthill Castle in Doylestown, Pennsylvania is much more than just the early 20th century historic home of an eccentric millionaire. It is a challenging and amazing place to photograph and a boot camp for composition. My previous blog post about photographing here featured images made with my regular camera. The images in this post were created with an iPhone.
Because I went through Fonthill with two very cameras, I had to have two very different visions. What I did with one camera did not even come close to what I did with the other. These images illustrate two very different examples of how to create with iPhonography. I made a lot of images with the iPhone at Fonthill, and in the future they will show up as parts of other images, somewhere in the process of creating other images.
The Study of Genealogy
The only part of this image that was created at Fonthill is the skull. It is one of the many unusual objects that occupy that place. That skull belonged to someone’s ancestor and it inspired a thought about how popular genealogy is now. That process of looking in the past is more than finding names for a family tree. It is an attempt see and understand the past from the current moment in time.
