Suddenly – just like that, it’s all about chimneys and architecture ……
And then – I am spending ages on my iPhone layering and fiddling in my apps – making my self bug eyed and just a bit obsessed (again) if you ask me ….
At least some of these are taken and played with outside, wandering Edinburgh getting some fresh air (lol) – anyone watching me must have thought I was doing a window or door survey ……..
And I notice I am doing a bit of painting – though still architecturally based
And then there are those that I deleted
Apps I love using :
Image blender, where you can layer two images , mask , arrange and change filters
Prisma – adds arty filters to your work , my favourite is ‘Heisenberg’ – which has an image of Richard Cranston in role, as its logo ( so I get to break bad and change my art into stylised cartoons , with the press of a button)
The filters on the iPhone camera – particularly ‘Exposure’ ( my phone never uses the correct exposure automatically? ) and some thing called ‘black point’ which are part of the ‘light’ menus
Layout – inside IG which puts my pictures into nice grids
I am enjoying playing around with the Prisma app at the moment – I particularly like the Heisenberg filter.
I think the buttons below are a successful filtered image
It tends it struggle with high contrast images loosing details in the shadows and it coping with really fine detail
With the succulents below – I had to lighten the original image because the first time I filtered it the result was very dark
I really like the ‘pencil/line’ effects – it does get a bit samey – I have really enjoyed pushing it – I think the succulent wall, my journal pages grid and the girl work particularly well. The buildings are a bit formulaic.
However – I think it works very well when I mix it with other apps
layered with Imageblender
Layered with another image of water in image blender
And then layered again with a window.
