A carnival exhibit
‘A carnival exhibit‘ by Albion Harrison-Naish – “I’d been meaning to try my hand at “apping” a photo into something more in the ‘iphone art’ mold. Then one day I found myself playing with accentuating the dancing fella up the back by using the centre focus tool in Snapseed, and well one thing led to another and here we go.
I really can’t quite remember exactly what I did, but suffice it to say I flicked the image back and forth between Snapseed and PhotoToaster a few times until I was pretty much happy with it. To achieve this image, I played with the centre focus and inner and outer brightness, the basics like saturation, intensity and contrast and then started adding some textures. I’m pretty sure that about covers it.
Original photo taken with the Hipstamatic using the Jane lens and Sugar film. Then processed using Snapseed and PhotoToaster.”
S.E. Tacoma Street
‘S.E. Tacoma Street‘ by Cecily Mariece Caceu – “I drive by this house almost everyday and always wonder about who lives there and what their story is.
I have never seen one person near the house but believe someone must live there because there is usually a car parked in the driveway. Portland is experiencing a big building boom right now and just up the block from here a large condominium project is going in. I imagine this piece of property with this lonely little house will eventually be torn down and developed. I have stopped to take pictures of this house before but the light and clouds this time really attracted me. I feel a renewed sense of urgency to document these little houses before they are all torn down.
I took this photo with my iphone 4s native camera (hdr setting on) and processed this in Snapseed to fine tune the contrast, sky and lighting. ”
‘BelAir 2‘ by Geri Centonze – “This is one of a few images I took of a classic Chevrolet Bel Air which was parked outside a restaurant we visited last week. My eye immediately was drawn to the deep red paint, chrome bumper, white wall tires and classic lines. It instantly brought back memories of the cars that were around when I was a child growing up in the 1950’s in Southern California. I peeked inside and saw the tuck on roll upholstery and the front side windows both had the “wind wings” that cars had back then (triangular windows on the side driver and front passenger windows that hinged to allow air to flow in without having to roll your window down).
The image was already cropped square because I shot using the square mode of the native camera. There was another vehicle parked next to the Bel Air, so using Sketch Club, I erased the background completely above the car. Then I chose ameraC only because it had been a while since I used the app and wanted to check the online gallery of filters and effects. I don’t remember which filter I used (wish I did because I really like the effect!). Then on to Snapseed for a little tuning and sharpening and it was complete.”
‘Shayla‘ by Shel Serkin – “The D train finally pulls into the station, and I am on my way to Boro Park to shoot the purim festivities of the neighborhoods Hasidic community. As I wait for the subway doors to open, I notice her perfectly framed by the little window at the end of the car. I raise my hand to shoot just as she herself shoots me a look. it’s a look that can be interpreted many ways. She looks back down, the doors open, and I go about my day.
Shot with Oggl: Lowy lens, BlacKeys Supergrain. Messed with a bit in snapseed.”
Castle Hill Club – Lincoln
‘Castle Hill Club – Lincoln‘ by Paul Brown – “The inspiration for this image really was the weather. It was getting dark and the fog was moving in creating a really magical Victorian style atmosphere – that helped define the location and how I processed the image. I was also looking for an excuse to try out my new Olloclip Wide Angle lens.
Capture was via ProCamera7 with Olloclip 4 in 1 wide angle lens attached. I then imported into Mextures to add some texture and light leak and finally imported into Oggl for the finished look.”
Just another rainy day
‘Just another rainy day‘ by Micha? Koralewski – “The woman with a red umbrella is my wife. I went for a short walk with her and our three kids, despite the fact it was cold and raining. I didn’t need to do much with this photo – just cropped it in Snapseed (16:9 format) and processed a bit in VSCO Cam (C1/vibrant filter). That’s all.”
Sólo tu. Miradas.
