Conclusion: be critical, but use your common sense and don't jump to conclusions before you know the hole picture. I'm staying, in fact I was never leaving. Hope you'll stay too, cause there really is no other place like Instagram:)

This is the camera that I am using for my assignments in the "Life's a photo" campaign. I am representing Amsterdam in the competition and if you like our pictures, and/or the city, every share you do of the photos will help Amsterdam towards being one of the most photogenic cities in the world. I find it deserves it:)

The pictures in this collage are all taken in Oslo this summer with my iPhone4. It was an eyeopening experience, visiting the city I grew up in, walking in the streets and places that I have walked 1000 times before, but never really noticed. This time I could finally appreciate the city, the city life, the architecture, the people and all this city has to offer. It simply made me love my home town again.

I'm getting ready for my next exhibition, at the Atelierroute in Blaricum, Oude Dorp, which will take place this weekend. This will be the first time I participate in this yearly happening so I am very excited!! The pictures show my new portfolio book, my newly printed Simply cards, one of my favorite motives (poppies) and the very cute mini mini pictures for sale for only € 10,- Will show more pics from the exhibition on my Facebook page for those with interest.
Now have a good night!!!

Did you ever try to define "abstract"? Or look it up on google? Let's just say it's not an easy subject to define:) After going through quite a few "double Dutch" words and phrases, I found one that is pretty comprehendible:
"An abstract aims to present only the gist of the subject matter"Which in photography pretty much means that you show only a part of the bigger object, like just a part of a building or just the texture of a door. It can be a pattern found in any object, big or smal, industrial or natural. Abstracts are often easy on the eye, easy to like, but it takes a practiced and creative eye to spot a good motive. An abstract motive can be found EVERYWHERE, you just have to open your mind to them:) Good luck!!

Picture 4: Here you can see the brightness adjustment box (g) (also mentioned in pic 2). I brightened my picture a bit, as I know the texture I wanted to add makes it darker. You can also go back and do this after you add the texture.
Picture 5: First I clicked on the texture box (h), then the filter I wanted to use, "Grunge 3" (i) and last I adjusted the intensity (j). I prefer just a hint of texture, so low intensity for me.
Picture 6: Click on eye (k) to see the finished picture, then on "Done" (l).
Picture 8: That brings you to quite a few options of saving. To save to camera roll click first box (o). As you can see you can also add it straight into Instagram and other apps directly from the app (n), which is a pretty cool function if you ask me.
Picture 9: If you do click on "Instagram & others" as in pic 8 (n), it takes you to 7 different app options to send it on to. Click on (p) to post on Instagram.
Voila!! That was it for now. Hope you enjoyed this little tutorial. Please leave a comment if you did and I also would appreciate any feedback you might have on either picture, tutorial or app:) Have a nice weekend!

I have a graphic mind and a thing for abstracts:) When put together, abstract pictures manage to create a fantastic visual, a piece of art, and I have to say I quite like this collection:) Have a good day. Btw. this picture will be for sale at www.society6/mariannehope (also see link on right side of blog)

|Ready for the exhibit|
For the exhibit I chose to showcase only my iphoneography based work/art. I had framed pictures in 3 different sizes, I had my Keepsy book "It's about the little things" (that is also for sale through that link btw., not digital, but a paper book:)) and my iphone based business cards, which I still love and which got a LOT of attention.
Seems I'll be doing another exhibition like this in Blaricum Oude Dorp in September. Already looking forward to it. I'll also have pictures in the "Dit is Zuid" exhibition in Rotterdam throughout April as well as the planned "SeeMyAlmere" exhibition in May/June. So, you can see there's a lot of exhibiting going on at the moment:):)
