I love the idea of taking a good photographic image and manipulating it so it looks like it was a painting. It follows then, that I quite enjoy experimenting and finding a cool ios filter app that facilitates this.
I like seeing how technically gifted people have created software to ‘see’ as a watercolour artist sees, or as an impressionist sees. Creativity. You can see some of my experiments on my Flickr stream.
It’s been a while since I shared my recent work here — my bad. But here’s and update:
There’s a lot of time and effort spent making video games look good. I often take screen shots of the scenes I like. Then I start to play with them — in this case importing the image from my PC to my iPad, then running it through Waterlogue.
Waterlogue is a very cool iPad / iPhone app that basically a watercolour filter for your images. And it works very very nicely!
I crawled through my image archive and grabbed a few good shots, and some OK shots, and I really like the way they turned out.
As well, I thought I’d just try taking a picture of the floor, and even it looked better.
I can see that I’ll be using Waterlogue more often in my images… not so much as a final filter but rather as one element I can apply as I fine-tune the shot. Another tool in the digital camera bag.
