Trust that little voice in your head that says “Wouldn’t it be interesting if …”
And then do it.
“More Joy of Photography” by Duane Michals
Some time ago, I wrote a posting about Apps that use effects to make even a random photo look like “art”. Yesterday I tried out some effects of Camera+ with a few of my photos. Some of the photos were okay, others were so-so — you wouldn’t look twice. But using the Clarity scene mode (boosts contrast and saturation to insane levels) together with effects like Nostalgia, Ansel, Hipster, Lomographic, etc. and a nice frame produced … interesting results.
As the images are probably at least somewhat NSFW, the image containing a few results is only liked here (sorry about the quality, it’s scaled down to fit into a blog posting and the photos look better by themselves on an iPhone).
It’s strange — you use a semi-professional DSLR and Aperture, and at the end a “simple” app on a mobile phone produces the most interesting results …
