Stay-at-home mom Ali Jardine has amassed a huge following on Instagram, 511,000 followers, by consistently creating surreal photos on her iPhone. Originally a painter, Jardine found her true calling as an artist when she started playing with Instagram and all the other photo apps on her mobile device. Many of her pieces are a family affair, the beautiful silhouettes you'll often find in her photos are of her daughter or son, Pippin and Gabe. We caught up with Jardine to ask her some questions like what opportunities Instagram has brought her and what specific apps she uses to bring her photos to life.
Are all of your photos on Instagram created using only an iPhone? Can you tell us which apps you use?
Almost all of my photos are shot with an iPhone (I started with a 3G and now am using a 6) and every image is edited entirely on an iPhone. Juxtaposer, Tiny Planets, VSCO, Image Blender, Pro HDR, and Mextures are all favorite apps that I couldn't live without.
