A little bit of this and that. Paper and digital. Starry night? My current mood... (Apps used: Repix, Artree, Blender)
Here's the "source card"....

I shot this series soon after the New Year....cleaning up from Christmas and the such. Something always sad about the "left-overs" of the holiday. Like going shopping the day after Christmas...nothing seems as exciting as it did the day before...

|Container (1). David Hayes, 2016.|
A cold day in December, no real idea as to what I wanted to accomplish but wanting to do something...perfect recipe for a little "faffing"! So...I grabbed a concrete bowl I had made over the summer and some "this and thats". These three images make up my Container three of a kind...

All three were shot using my iPhone6 native camera app and processed on my iPad. As for the app(s) I used...I truly don't remember but it doesn't look like I did much to any of these images other than the usual exposure and contrast corrections. Sometimes simple is best....

|52 Cards (2/52). David Hayes, 2016|
I used the apps Stackables and Hipstamatic to create this week's final version. I started with a very basic card and let the apps do the heavy lifting this time around!

|Messy. David Hayes, 2016.|
A new year calls for new projects. More on that in a bit...
First, finishing up an old project...the Be Still workshop with this final image...Messy. Our last prompt asked us to "make a mess" in the process of creating....and shoot it top-down. Whilst I toyed with several different ideas based on this prompt, I decided to go with the "mess" I created starting my first new project of the new year. Not quite a still-life but even still I do like the abstract quality of this image. So there you have it!
Let's talk about my new project...which will help make more sense of Messy. I'm borrowing a workshop concept created by Seth Apter over at The Altered Page. He asks his participants to take a deck of playing cards, coat both sides with black gesso, and then go at each card...collaging, assembling, creating...a different work of art on every card. My project is to take this idea...and go one step further. After I collage/assemble a card I will then scan it into my iPad and "finish" it digitally. I've always wanted to find a project where I could blend my mixed-media side with my photography...and here it is! My goal is to create a new card every week for the entire year...and here's the first one!
52 Cards. (1/52). David Hayes, 2016.
Just for fun, here's the card before I "app-ed" it:
I'm excited about the possibilities of this project...should be interesting to see what I come up with each week. Do check back!!

The prompt asked us to use "one thing"...differently. Different times of day, different settings, different ways of processing. My "one thing" was the string of mini-lights...actually two strings of mini-lights. In this grid, I used three different set-ups...the first images use the same set-up but were shot from different angles. All were shot using my Nikon DSLR and processed in Lightroom and Photoshop.
Since I always have my iPhone6 with me, I also shot each set-up using a replacement camera app called ProCamera. Each image was processed using my iPad3 and each with a different app. Clockwise from the top left: Snapseed, Stackables, iColorama, and Mextures.
All and all, a fun prompt to work. Love those little lights!!

I shot this from a little lower vantage point...and while I didn't like the overall look, I do like the perspective this tight crop gives the image. I used a different Lightroom preset and Photoshop texture with this image. Almost looks like an ad for a high end perfume....
