IPhoneography Friday: Rocks and Leaves
I mentioned the other day that the fall is getting “thin”. More leafless trees now; the ones remaining are still colorful, but even there it’s starting to wind down.
I grabbed this image the other day while shopping with Nanette at TJ Max. These were just outside the front door, and I was struck by the colors - purple flowers, red and gold leaves, the healthy green. And then, just to supply a “color foil” are the three rocks. I gave them a bit of the Van Gogh look, while keeping a swath cutting diagonally across as normal. A bit of a frame, a bit of saturation tweaking, add my initials and I’m done.
The image was created using iColorama and Distressed FX primarily - they’re my go to apps on the iPad/iPhone. I’m experimenting with Snapseed and Affinity (for a more full featured editor), but in this case, didn’t use either. I have the new iPad Pro 10.5, with the Apple pen, which I used extensively on the shot - the pen is an extremely nice addition!
Now, it’s time to get ready for my show - I have a two-day show starting tomorrow at the Lewis Palmer High School in Monument. Stop by if you’re in the area.
