It’s time for another entry in the “How did she do that?” series!
This past week I created a simple image of a rose. The rose was purchased some time ago and I’ve let it dry out, as it would naturally.
Starting with a simple setup, of a white piece of foam core (or gator board) for the background, then using a lamp with a 60 watt bulb for light, I snapped this image.
I then went into the PhotoToaster App, adding a punch to the red, evening out the exposure and doing some blending (with the new blending tool in Beta, you may not have that yet, if you have this app!). Resulting in this next image.
Moving from PhotoToaster into Picfx, softening the tones a bit, adding another layer of texture, and even a slight grungy white edge.
For the next step I used the Superimpose app. If you’re interested in blending images, this is a nice little app and is only about a $1. I used this app to merge the photo with a texture I’d created previously (on the iPhone). After playing about with the placement of the mask and opacity I came out with this result.
With a quick pop into the Photomarkr app to add a copyright, the image is complete!
I hope you find this post helpful, as I hope to write more like this.
Thanks for reading!
