Photo filters and apps for Halloween

October is here and apparently so is Halloween fever!  My youngest fetched up our bag of Halloween decos gathered mainly from November sales, so it has taken us a few years to gather a spider or three. I did like that he squished a pair of skelly-bob gloves behind a drain pipe, to rather good effect I think!  So I took a snap and then I added a few (too many) finishes and got a spooky photo as a reward! For this shot, I used Snapseed and cropped and added a ‘grunge’ finish and a texture and a creepy frame.   Spooky huh? I started with this – After this one, I had to do the spider too!  An innocent giant spider chomping on a glow in the dark skelly, add a few photo finishes and creepy spider with a swarm to help him…. For this one, I started in Camera+ , cropped and added the ‘Dreamstate’ filter, then on top of that I used the ‘Pinhole’ filter.   I messed with the intensity to get …

iPhone filters on a Dandelion (roar) Clock.

I found some cool Dandelion clocks while out and about last week, so I snapped a couple of pictures.  In fact I snapped loads and only got a few decent ones, they are tricky little monkeys to get to stay still.   I popped on some different filters to see how they looked. I thought I would share my results.  All of the filters and effects were added in Camera+ on the iPhone 4. These are the starting photos, no filter, no crops. I put this on into Camera+ and cropped it down and added clarity Crop, clarity, depth of field.   Crop and Polarise Crop, Clarity and Ansel. As part of a course I am doing by the lovely Jessica Van Den called ‘Set up Shop‘ I have to ‘play’ as part of one of the lessons,  and I intend to!  I might pull out my pens and a pretty notebook and have a little draw. I recently was introduced to the work of Kate Bingaman-Burt this week by Gathered digital magazine and have …

A month of bonkers weather and photos to show it!  Day 5 was snowy trees, followed by a chair in the sunshine!  I photo’ed favourite things and books I am reading (nearly finished Astrid and Veronika and I highly recommend it).  We have had Spring break, eleven inches of snow and saw the month out with Easter which was dry and sunny!  Here are the photos.

Ten on Sunday the 10th. February 2013

It is raining today, but getting 10 photos shouldn’t be a problem. This morning started off with a big thunderstorm and lots of rain. I found about 10 pairs of 3D glasses in the drawer, so Bodhi decided to put as many on as would stay! ‘Snack packs’ of Custard Cremes with a cup of tea. My first cookery book ‘My learn to Cook Book’ circa nineteen seventy something. I love the illustrations and 1970’s ingredients like cochineal! Yum, beetles… I remembers making lots of recipes from this book with the cooking cat and dog. A Knicker-bocker Glory was a birthday must. New gym togs is always motivation. I can’t wait for step class tomorrow! A montage for a guest post I wrote today. Link to the post coming this week! Very exciting and quite an honor being allowed to write for someone else’s blog. The boys of the house watched the rugby this morning. When it had stopped raining they went out to play. They came back a bit muddy. Batman looks a bit …

Rainbows and unicorns

Ok, I lied about the unicorns, but the rainbow was real!  A double rainbow at that. We walked into a fabulous rainbow one morning which almost made us late for school such was it’s wonder. The first thing most people I met that morning asked me was, did you see the rainbow?  What a wonderful thing to start the day with! So, I had to take a few photos.  I know, shocker! I have taken full advantage of the rainbow and my iPhone 4 photo apps and I have made some cool rainbow pictures.   This photo is cropped using the square cropper in Camera +. I cropped it to highlight the rainbow and frame it with the  winter trees. I added the Vibrant filter.  On top of that, the Clarity ‘scene’.   I used Camera+ to crop out the rooftops.  Then I added Clarity in ‘scenes’.  There, the second rainbow becomes clearer.  Into Filters and add Vibrant at 80%.  Don’t forget to save!   I know this is a cheesy filter effect, but I …
