Lahaina, Maui. 2010.

Lahaina, Maui. 2010.

The orig­i­nal unedit­ed image came up on my desk­top back­ground today. It was washed out and kin­da poor.

Then I real­ized that it could, with a lit­tle work in a few apps, turn into a rea­son­able image. I like it.

I used Snapseed to adjust the colour / sat­u­ra­tion and reduce the haze. And crop. Then off to Brush­stroke to work on the treat­ment.

Not sure which app I used to invert it, was white skele­ton on a stark back black­ground. Maybe Water­Logue… Then processed it through Repix. Either way, I love the effect.

Here’s the orig­i­nal:

My what Big Teeth you have

Some recent work — interpreting The Long Dark

It’s been a while since I shared my recent work here — my bad. But here’s and update:

The Long Dark
Mys­tery Lake cab­ins from The Long Dark

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.

Waterlogued makes art from your art

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.

Curent­ly Water­logue is $2.99 in the App Store.
