A further update on my recent obsession with jacking my old photos to hell and back with cheap post-processing tools.
This particular photo was messed about with using Art & Mobile’s “TiltShift Generator” for iOS. There’s apparently an Adobe Air version, but I’ve given up Flash and its bastard stepchildren for not-Lent so I haven’t seen it in action.
I’ve never been too terribly into post processing my photos, but there are so many nice iOS tools (way less overhead than firing up a beast like Photoshop) for doing post-processing now, and they’re really fun to use. I have about a half dozen little $0-$3 tools for doing fun things to pictures.
I always liked this picture, but I was never very happy with the color (the original was very much on the cool side, thanks to misconfigured white balance on the camera) or the DOF. I fixed the DOF with TiltShiftGen and took some wacky liberties with the tint in PS Express, both on the iPad.
The original, for comparison:
iPhone 4 makes a nice “everywhere” camera.
Shot via Pro HDR.
It took 5½ years to get there, but I think this is a nice time to look back on the photos I’ve posted to Flickr over time.
Driving down Jefferson in Ecorse and Wyandotte. Saw the ice floating down the river and liked the way the sun was hitting it. Pulled over in the parking lot of the Pier 500 bar and got a half-dozen shots before my battery died.
If you permit yourself to read meanings into (rather than drawing meanings out
of) the evidence, you can draw any conclusion you like.
