Scissors. David Hayes, 2012
i365 project, 124/365. (Jazz)

After yesterday's recipe, I needed something a little simpler...and I wanted to try out a new app, Jazz. Even though it didn't turn out to be simpler as it took me a moment to figure out how to make this app work, I really like how this turned out...

Image of scissors captured using iPhone camera app. (I shot this full length against a black field and then cropped it in-app.)

Reopened this image in Jazz.
(Oh yeah...I need to explain something about Jazz. When you open an image, you will be presented with 4 different will be the original, the others will be randomized images using Jazz's filters. You can pick one of these and use it as is...or hit the Clef note at the top and be presented with 4 different versions...and/or click on one of the versions and be presented with a menu of filters/effects that you can manually set. For this recipe, I decide to pick my original image....and then went "manually" all the way.)

1. Base: Original 
2. Sepia: 76%
3. Border: Polaroyal
4. Brightness & Contrast: 3% & 80%, respectively
5. Film Treatment: Cool Shadows @42%
6. Dirt, Grunge & Schmutz: Cracks @ 97%, x/y offset 22%/10%, respectively.


I hope all this makes sense! (I suppose you might need to have the app open and be looking at the manual menu.) I found that once I figured out how to make this app tick, I really like the controls it gave me to build an image. I'll be coming back to this one again!

I have a pair of old scissors just like these. I may have to go now and shoot some pictures of them. This is really cool.

Great. I'll have a go using the manual option as so far I've just taken the easy option (of course).
