I've been viewing your pics for a while now and they're all fantastic! But the "self" one of you is my favourite! :D It gives a super-imposed/reflection look and it's great!

Cheers!

It's pretty amazing the quality of pictures that can be taken with a mobile. There is a guy i know that went about taking lanscapes on his phone and printed them on canvas, because of the different colours that he managed to capture.

I love the pictures, especially the first one. Amazing that you took them with your mobile phone.

Wow, those pictures are amazing for a phone. Did you edit them at all?

Emilia said...

beautiful pictures. my boyfriend has the same cellphone.. and it's amazing what that camera can take, for a cellphone-camera. both photos are great, are they both edited? or just the one on you. 7emilia

They are both edited (like all my photographs) in photoshop. The upper photo is the same photo superimposed on itself, and in the second photo I raised the contrast and removed the color.

The Sony Ericsson phone cams rock. I have a 2 megapixel K750i myself, with all the same features (macro, white balance adjustment, night shot, etc). Have you seen the K750i mini-site with Martin Parr's shots? It's brilliant, check it out:

Very inspiring to see you shoot such wonderful images with, dare I say, low-tech equipment.

Like the superimposed self portrait - interesting! Who are all these people who are posting comments, maybe you should start merchandising - like the Tao Ruspoli 2006 Calendar....you could use your photos, inspiring quotes,funny jokes,add interesting date markers that are not on mass produced calendars,etc. Good idea for holiday gifts and marketing El Tao ;)
