A friend of mine told me about the Prisma App for iPhones anA friend of mine told me about the Prisma App for iPhone and Android phones. Nifty little app that has lots of fun effects. You must take the photo with the app and process it right then as you cannot reimport it later. However, I could save the original photo on my iPhone and use in other programs later. This included some fun with the photos shown here in Photoshop CC.
Triptychs can be so much fun and make for beautiful wall hangings. SmartPhotoEditor software makes it really easy. Under Borders is a Triptych option. You can adjust the image in this feature.
SmartPhotoEditor has many standard editing adjustments plus over 6,000 special effects. These range from painterly effects, sharpening, borders and much, much more.
It is currently 1/2 off at $29.99 and works as a standalone program, so you don’t even need Photoshop to use it. You can pay a bit more to have it as a plugin for your Photoshop.
Use code LL1914 for an extra 10%. So much fun!!

You can also sell your photographs through this site. Take a look!
Andrew Scrivani’s Creative Live course has so much great information on food photography. This has become a real passion for me… similar to flowers in color and shape… but always accessible and great indoors!
For most of my food shots I use a lesser known Canon lens – 50mm macro 2.5… it’s awesome and under $300!
