To The Mun – a screenshot I loved from about a year ago. But then I thought, hey, I wonder what a retro image would look like, then the theme of a vintage mission soundtrack album – like the kind you could get back in the ’70s like this: imgur.com/ddtJoJs
If you follow app pricing and apps Apple features on the iTunes iOS App Store, you’ll have noticed that this week Apple is making ProCam XL free. Very cool. Very functional.
So, then, here it is, three free and very good photo editing apps. Enjoy!
Advice from a great:
His point is a great one. If you are only shooting when you plan to shoot you end up bring far too much stuff with you. You end up bringing a couple of extra lenses, maybe you should include a flash, what about a tripod, etc. By the time you are done you have way too much gear. Don’t making taking photos too hard. Always carry your camera with you and shoot what is in front of you.
Starting off the new year is always a time for reflection. This little video reminds me why we persevere in any artistic or craftsman-like endeavor, be it card-making, crafting, photography, or painting.
Nobody Tells This to Beginners
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.
My latest exploration has been with Brushstroke — a rather fully-featured iOS filter app. The Blue Jay image above is a render created with Brushstroke — almost has an illustration quality about it.
Yeah, it’s pretty powerful — handling both watercolour style as well as oil — and things in-between such as acrylics and gouache.
Unfortunately it doesn’t really label them all accordingly (Oil, Washed, Hatched, Simple, etc) but then again, it’s kinda fun to explore.
