The original photo was taken on my iPad and saved. In PhotoViva I cropped and made some vague changes. I found it all a bit confusing so saved and opened in Snapseed. I chose Old Lens, then Frame 8. Saved & posted.
If you're interested in learning more about using your apps, read on... Dave at Clearer Reflections has been doing some cool tutorials and you can find one here at iphoneographycentral, which has reviews of apps and more tutorials. An interesting article about Dave's Recipe Book Project is here.
I've been trying to take notes as I work on photos but I didn't manage very well with this one. From memory I put a photo of a hippeastrum into PhotoTropedelic, then blended the result with the original photo, using Blender. I saved, then finished up in XnView Photo, using various options. Next time I'll write it all down...
Dave's Recipe Book Project has a change of name but still challenges us to produce a photo using only apps, iPhone or Android. My entry is very simple, starting with a photo taken late at night at my big birthday bash. A friend was exploring PaperCamera on my iPhone, and snapped me and my friend Samantha as we sat by the open fire.
The PaperCamera mode was Andy Pop, which produces 4 images in an Andy Warhol style. I opened this in PhotoToaster and cropped to one image only and saved. A strange choice, perhaps.
I opened this again in PhotoToaster and in Lighting I chose Recover Hilights, in Fx I chose Sharpen, in Vignette I chose Deep Focus, in Texture I chose Antique, and finished with the Border. Black Brush. Then saved.
As a book binder trained in Sydney and Auckland, I am currently interested in drawing, print making, and all aspects of the artist’s book. My lifelong passions have always revolved around books, both making and reading, and natural history. From 1980 until retirement in 2004 (and later on contract)I worked in the Research Library of the Australian Museum and was privileged to work with the Rare Book Collection. My interest in the marine animals depicted in the 16th and 17th century natural history books has led to a series of hand made books I am working on, featuring my re-drawings of these animals. Wamberal, on the beautiful NSW Central Coast, is where I live and work, in easy reach of 7 beaches and lagoons.
