For this submission I chose a self-portrait taken and edited on my iPhone.
The image was taken not long after I had fallen down twenty stairs, suffered a severe laceration to the back of my head and an injury to my right wrist requiring carpal reconstruction surgery last year, resulting in only having the use of one hand for nearly six months. I also injured my left shoulder which is being operated on in a few weeks, which again will involve several months of no or limited use.
My choice of treatment of the editing and the overall composition was intended to reflect my state of mind at the time and a glimpse of the pain and uncertainty that was a daily feature.
After the accident I was unable to hold my camera (a fairly heavy Canon 5D), so found myself utilizing the camera on my iPhone and the vast array of editing software available to quench my creative thirst.
This led to me regularly contributing to the AIPA –The Enohpi Project and D- Photo New Zealand Camera Phone Photographer of the Year, in which I won the July round and am in contention to be the overall winner.
