Back at the end of 2016 my friend from across the pond in Rochester NY, Kathy, and I, decided to do a collaboration throughout 2017, where once a month we would take a square iPhone shot each on a given theme, and I would put the shots into a diptych and post them on this blog. We took it in turns to choose a theme, and now at the end of 2017 beginning of 2018 our collaboration has come to an end. It was great fun as neither of us knew what the other one planned. Kathys blog is at https://kmsalvatore.wordpress.com however Kathy hasn’t blogged for a while as she’s been through a lot of family health issues and upheavals this year. She still managed a shot each month though in spite of it all, and the good news is that things are getting better so hopefully she’ll be back on the blog this new year!
Here is our collaboration in full, with our final shots to see out the old year.
August~ use the plotograph app to make stills with moving parts.
Our last theme for December was something American, something British. Kathy did the Ginny brew house Christmas tree, which is made from kegs of beer and is 26 ft. tall. I did the Tyne Bridge.
Hope you all enjoyed following along as much as we did doing it!
Our ongoing collaboration of iPhone photography (details HERE). For August it was Kathy’s turn to choose the theme, and she chose ‘use the Plotograph app’, which I featured back in the blog HERE
Of course it’s not possible to do them as a diptych so have run them together in a short video. Mine are the boring clouds, and Kathy has done a fab job with a shot of some boys playing in a playground.
I’ve written before about my good friend Kathy who lives in Rochester,new York USA, and who I met (virtually) on Flickr, can’t remember how many years ago. We stay in touch on Facebook and messenger and also here where she has her own photographic website HERE. In 2014 Phil and I went over to visit Kathy and her husband Dave, and had a great holiday, our first, but hopefully, not last trip to the U.S.A. (I think we’ll be let in again!) We were so looked after, and taken to lots of beautiful places, and Kathy & Dave and their friends that we met were all lovely people, and really welcoming to us. One of our best holidays ever. Kathy is a really unique photographer, a whizz with artistic iPhone shots, and also with her fuji. I love her work.
So this year we are doing a photographic collaboration, where both of us, on the last day of each month, will take an iPhone square shot on a given theme, and put them into a dyptich, side by side. No rules other than to make the shot square and on theme, process however we like and see what we come with.
January 31st theme is ‘Water’, and because our respective weather systems are both set to miserable we both chose to shoot indoors, and here’s what we came up with.
