|Still Life. David Hayes. 2012|
My favorite image from last week has to be "Still Life" which I posted on January 19th. There is just a certain air to this pic that makes it stand out. (Particularly in light of the original photo which wasn't much to speak of!!!)
So...I started with an iPhone snap of a bouquet of flowers sitting on a ledge that separates our "breakfast nook" from the family room. Nothing special to this pic....but I did notice that with the bean pot in the background, there was a nice composition going on....
I opened the original in FX Photo Studio HD and did some basic editing and cropping...nothing fancy. (I don't remember exactly but it looks like I probably played with the exposure, contrast, and saturation a bit.)
Saving and opening this version in ArtistaHaiku, I applied the "Abstract 08" filter...tweeked this a little, then applied the "crinkle paper" background filter. And there it was!
(Just as a side note: there are four apps in the Artista series - Haiku, Oil, Sketch and Vintage. These are available as an iPhone app or an iPad app in "HD" ...which means you'll pay more but it's worth it! I really like Haiku & Vintage...not so fond of Oil...and haven't tried Sketch. Yet!)
