Getting fancy with photos


My photography has definitely been changing since I started using photographic websites such as Blipfoto and Flickr. I used to be content with a basic:

  1. point
  2. press
  3. post

attitude to sharing my photographs. Now there are so many brilliant apps for the iPad and iPhone that tweaking my photos to make them more interesting is oh so easy. I just have to make sure I don’t overdo it! Here are a few of my favourite tweaked photographs:

This image of my daughter was taken on a very basic digital camera. I used Camera+ to  crop, colour and used depth of field to focus in through the leaves:

For more fun photographs using Marblecam on the iPhone and iPad can have a wonderful effect on flowers etc.:

These 2 photos of me were tweaked in Instagram (left) and Camera+ (right) to use the colour tones. I then grouped them together using Nostalgio:
Faces
This is another slightly different colour effect from Camera+, I also used the Golden crop to concentrate on the important features:
close up
Flowers can really be shown off to good effect with the tools in Camera+. These next two show chives using Miniaturisation and Depth of field respectively:

Depth of field
All of these apps can make an amateur photograph look at lot more professional without spending lots of money on expensive software. It also doesn’t take a lot of learning to get to use them properly. So go on experiment!
