I've spent some time this evening playing with a photo I took a few days ago with my iPhone. I have a fabulous new Nikon that I got for Christmas, but my iPhone is always with me and so it seems some of those unexpected shots are captured when I have no intention of taking any pictures. Thank goodness the iPhone has a decent camera!
The one problem I find with the iPhone camera is that often when the flash goes off the photo ends up being very foggy looking. However, this particular shot resulted in a crisp, bright centre and the dark edges that I quite liked. I added Kim Klassen's new texture 'epiphany' and a bit of a subtle border, but it really didn't need much processing.
On this next image, I decided to play with some filters and then I made multiple copies, each time 'grabbing' the corners and transposing them to create this abstract version.
This final image is my favourite. I was playing with several of Nancy Donaldson's textures, layering them and playing with the blend modes and opacity. I also experimented with adding a hue/saturation layer in which I changed the colours from the original. Finally, I added one of Jerry Jone's textures which included some text. I love the text that subtly shows through as well as the vibrant colours. I think this would make an amazing substrate for journalling or perhaps some hand stitching and beading in a fibre art piece. I suspect you will be seeing this piece again, in one form or another.
