MAR RAM

MAR RAM. David Hayes, 2012
i365 project, 75/365. (Hipstamatic + FX Photo Studio)

A little March madness of my own....or....taking something very simple and making it...I'll let you decide!

Recipe:

Find a concrete wall showing cracks with real attitude. Gray or white walls will work best for this recipe.
Now...open Hipstamatic and "dial in" the Matty ALN lens and Blackys B&W film. Leave the flash off.
Take a bunch of shots...you're after the cracks with the most personality! 
Pick one...save to your camera roll and open this in FX Photo Studio.
Okay...pay close attention...there are a bunch of steps ahead!
1. B&W Grained
2. Noir Blue
3. Sepia
4. Symmetry Vertical
5. Pencil Paint 2
Apply each filter in the same order as above...adjusting each to taste.
Before saving, do one last adjustment for contrast and hue/saturation.
Save...and enjoy!
