One way I take photos is out the window of the car and then pray for a good one. I just put the iPhone up and start shooting as fast as I can.
This photo was taken with my new iPhone X. I have to say that so far I love the camera on the iPhone X. This particular photo doesn’t really do the camera justice. It takes incredibly sharp, crisp, clear photos. I changed this so much, you can’t tell that.
I first put the photo in Enlight which is my go-to editing app on my iPad and iPhone. Then on my iPad, I put it in Lightroom. I really like to use the Color Mix in Lightroom. If I was on my computer, I would have mostly edited the photo in Lightroom. But Adobe still has some things to work out on the iPad. Like when you go to make adjustments, the photo blurs. That makes things difficult for me.
Then I took the photo into Procreate and did the pencil work.
Next, I moved the photo into iColorama. I applied a couple of textures.
My husband is a real purist with photos. I think he is still living back in the 1970’s when photos were done on film. But sometimes, he makes me doubt where I am going with my work.
Last year I really cut back on what I was doing with photos, and I have a great deal of regret, and feel I did nothing but move backwards. I think I just have a different vision. I want to have my photos meet my abstract paintings some place.
We have all these options on our phones and tablets with digital. Why not explore them?
So I already have my New Years resolution for 2018 as to photography, EXPLORE ALL OPTIONS. Leave no stone unturned.
I own a page on Instagram that features artists, photographers and people who do edits. It’s an unusual page as usually an Instagram page just does one of these categories. But I wanted my page, bpa_arts to be as eclectic and interesting as possible. I wanted it to be a place for people who may not fit in any place else to come. I felt that’s where I belonged. I want to belong on my page again.
