In December 2015, I set myself a challenge: Edit the same starting photograph thirty different ways, creating thirty unique pieces of art, and share them on social media with hashtag #30edits. Using a single iPhone photograph of a tree in winter and a variety of iPhone apps, I easily achieved my goal of completing thirty new artistic pieces. The results were widely varied and surprising, leading me to realize that the artistic possibilities held within one single photograph are infinite.
Here is the starting photograph:
The gallery shows the images in the order they were created. As you scroll through, you can observe a creative progression which began as “editing a photograph” and moved to “using photographic elements” as the starting point to create a piece of art. A final summary on the project and process is available here.
