Use These Apps to Add Grunge to Your iPhoneography

image

This week, I wanted to introduce an app I've been using for quite some time, and that I used to create this image titled, "Tree of Grunge." Every once in a while, you come across a photo you have taken that just seems impossible to edit. Maybe, there are flaws in your photo, but you still want to turn it into something special. That's where Modern Grunge ($0.99) comes into play. This exciting app lets you turn your photos into a work of art with one touch.

I was at my dad's place for a picnic when I spotted this peculiar-looking tree. I could've taken this photo standing up, or from any angle, and it still would've looked great. But I believe it's always good to think outside the box in photography. That's why I chose this angle. Plus, I wanted to capture the clouds covering the sky, which had an eerie feeling of their own.

Create Your Own Photo Filter Library Using Hipstamatic

image

Digital photo filters can change the look of your photos, and it's easy to create your own using Hipstamatic ($1.99)! To put together a collection, use the Hipstamatic app to photograph a blank sheet of paper (or any flat surface to get an interesting texture). Vary the combination of lenses and film with Hipstamatic to create different images.

You have many possibilites as shown by this random collection of nine filters.

To apply a filter to photos in your Camera Roll, open an image in any app that allows blending of layers. Image Blender ($2.99) is a great app for this. Add one or more of the digital filters on top of your photograph, and adjust the blending mode until you get the desired effect.

The nine filters above produced these variations of one images, shown below.

And here's a closer look at the finished image where three of the filters were added for a unique blend.  



Rules of iPhoneography: Depth of Field

image

Sharp focus is one of the key aspects of capturing a great photograph. Focus and exposure are probably the two most critical technical areas photographers need to understand, and my last post, "Rules of iPhoneography: Capture Every Detail with These Exposure Tricks," looked at exposure in some detail. For my second post, I want to focus on focus (really sorry, couldn't help myself).

The iPhone, like all phone camera technology I'm aware of, gives us very little scope to play with focus at the point of capture. This is because the relationship between its optics and its sensor is such that typically the vast majority of the scene will be in focus, or almost in focus, even if we just point and click. We would describe this as a large depth of field or depth of focus.



Texturize Your iPhoneography with the Camera Awesome App

image

Welcome to today's iPhoneography workflow titled "Textured Landscape." I will guide you through the steps I have taken to turn a landscape photo into textured artwork. 

I took this shot while on a walk with my family. It's a simple landscape that just caught my eye. I used Camera+ ($1.99) to capture the photo and used the Auto Focus feature. I did this because I wanted to get a clear shot of the whole scene, not focus on just one area. I also used this app for starting my editing process. After taking the shot, I used the Clarity option at 100 percent. Next, I went to the Vibrant feature and used put it to 100 percent also. Then, I saved to Camera Roll.
