Luis Rodriguez uses his mobile photography to reflect on the world around him. An architect living in Madrid, Rodriguez captures the essence of his surroundings with his iPhone 4S. His work has been recognized with two Honorable Mentions in this year’s Mobile Photography Awards, and also featured in Spanish online media.
Rodriguez primarily shoots with the iPhone's native camera application but will occasionally use ProCamera or Camera + when he needs to choose separate focus and exposure points. His next stop is Snapseed for edits and then FilterStorm or FrontView for special edits.
"I love reflections on any surface: cars, buses, buildings and puddles," Rodriguez told Connect. "I love to watch the city and its urban life reflected on all these surfaces. I do also love to turn upside down pics [sic] of reflections on puddles, entering, thus, into a totally new and magical world."
For Rodriguez, mobile photography has become a major artistic outlet.
"Apart from my family, mobile photography is nowadays the most important thing to me," he said. "The critical economic situation in my country allows me to have a lot of free time that I spend shooting, editing, writing on my blog, on my Facebook fan page, and so on.
"Friends and family have already got used to me walking down the streets and stopping by to shoot some pics, or to sit at home and start editing. But I must admit it was very hard at the beginning for them, and for me too. I shoot, edit, work on my pics and my blog daily, almost all the time. It's no longer a hobby, but rather a passion that I hope will turn someday into a new way of living."
Rodriguez's third solo exhibition, "The City Reflected," is ongoing in Peñafiel, Valladolid, Spain. You can also see more of his images on EyeEm.
