Smartphone Photography - Tangerine Dream - Still Life (original work)

in #smartphonephotography6 years ago (edited)

Hello Steemians!

Many of you who know me know that one of the things I love to do is to create Still Life. Many moons ago I used to paint them but now I use my trusty iPhone. Even the most daily items can make a beautiful Still Life and lately it's been raining a great deal in New York City so I've been indoors more than usual and as it happens I've been buying a lot of tangerines because they are in season and because my family loves them so much. With time indoors and the fact that tangerines are very pretty, especially when you can get them with the leaves still attached I was hit with inspiration. I love the fact that Still Life traditionally depict everyday objects, elevating them to Objects d' Arte and so I couldn't help but try a few different scenes --here are three-- with some lovely tangerines! And boy did I have fun with various set-ups and, of course, eating a few along the way!

Hope you enjoy Tangerine Dreams as much as I enjoyed creating it!

Good postings as we know Still Life means the work of photography that makes objects die as objects to be more visible live or speak to the audience for broadcast messages.Still Life we ​​often see in everyday life. We many photos still live in magazines, calendar , fancy or minimalist framed photographs in the office hallways, as well as billboards at the intersection of protocol streets. This type of photograph can be a food, drink or other inanimate object arranged in such a way that attracts the eye. And still life also serves as a tool to express emotionally.

Thaks you....

Thank you so much!

Awesome as always my dear 😍😊

J it's been too long! How are you Buddy? Always such a pleasure to see you! And, of course, thanks for stopping by! I'll head over to you to see what you've been up to...

You have a beautiful taste in taking pictures, unfortunately I tried to take a photo of me down the rain but my mobile was ruined lol I think I lack experience and talent like you

You are very kind! Thank you! I think you can do it, never stop trying! x

What a great color balance! It looks like a photography from Classical age! Most amazing thing is you took them via your iPhone! I wish Apple Inc will see these photography and if they see they will use them as promotional material :D
Fantastic work my dear friend! Every photography of yours is learning me something new about color balance! Amazing still lives!

Hehe! Thank you so much! Welcome to Steemit!

very beautiful pictures and very nice photography :)

Wow! I am amazed that all of these shots were taken on an Iphone. It seems that you have really refined your photo skills! I love the use of the black background to isolate the tangerines in the first two photos. Out of interest, did you use any additional lighting on the photos?

Hello there! Thanks for stopping by and for your kind comments, too! For these photos I used natural light :D

But they are wonderful ... how is it that you do ????

Hello my dear! Thank you very much! It's so nice to see you!

but do you use any particular application in your mobile phone? @ilanaakoundi

Good job @ilanaakoundi I love it :)
It reminds me of my mother's hobby, Doyou like cat? See my post
I show you some cute cat, they are very charming. Really!

You are a damn fine artist girl!

Every shot was so detailed it was really nice to see thanks a lot dear for sharing :)
