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.
This is a fast and easy technique. You love fall leaves, right? Well they tend to blow around. I found this leaf upside down on a picnic table and tried to hold it to catch the sun backlighting it… then tried to stick it between the two boards which didn’t work very well. So, I found pine needles to secure the base.. and then hid them so only the backlit leaf and its shadow showed.
I was over at a friend’s house today and noticed my glass of iced tea on a bumpy black coaster had quite an interesting look to it. Out came the IPhone and I snapped away with different levels of tea in the glass and angles. Liked this one the best, especially the blue that came through from the black coaster.
Used the Camera+ app with Macro setting checked.
Just to prove – you can find fun images anywhere!
JC Raulston Arboretum had their Open House yesterday with plenty of poinsettias to see. The pink one really got my attention.
I laid a sunflower bloom on a green pillow to get a sharp center approximating the same size as the next shot. Then I placed the bloom in a pot of greenery and used Blast Mode with 10 exposures on my IPhone.
I layered the two images with the blast one on top and selected the center brown circle with Shift/Elliptical marquee which constrains your selection to a circle. I feathered it with 20 pixels.
Then I added a layer mask to the top layer and filled the circle with black, bringing through the sharp center below without any other part from the bottom layer.
A few green areas needed Content-Aware Fill to make them consistent.
A square crop seemed to work well on this symmetrical image.
