iPhoneography: Nicki Flower
Allan Barnes primarily works with old-school photographic techniques such as the wet-plate collodion process, which involves using coated a glass negative and produces beautifully detailed print. In fact, he doesn't even own an iPhone. The models he works with, however, frequently bring their Apple smartphones to shoots and Barnes started borrowing them to take additional photos once his primary shoots had ended.
"As somebody who works with antique processes, I sometimes get asked if I dislike digital or other modern technology. I don't," Barnes says. "I think that technology is a banquet, and that it is good to sample everything that is on the table. I especially like mixing older and newer technologies."
In this shot, model Nickie Jean Richards holds a morning glory. Barnes used Hipstamatic, an app known for creating retro effects.
