• Tutorial 11 “Sliders”. Take it easy: all ingenious is simple!

    So often happens that creating artworks takes a lot of time to complete. To get started, the idea gives birth to the creation. A person needs intellectual stimulation. Suppose you have an idea in advance and you know the way (or about) to achieve the desired result. You are on a creative high, however, in spite of all, neither of created results are not make you happy.

    Well, you have to forget about these works for a while =) You don’t need to hurry to complete your work. One day you will find the right solution or get the desired apps. Perhaps, you need a time, lots of it, so be patient ;)

    But nevertheless happens that you need just a few minutes to create a truly amazing and inspiring image. Something simple but powerful.
    And now I’ll discuss the creation the one of such works.

    1. I took this pic with Slow Shutter Cam app by Cogitap Software.

    Just point and shoot…

    Slow Shutter does not actually change the shutter speed of the ’s camera =) It just simulates control over exposure and shutter speed

    This app provides three main options – Automatic, Manual and Light Trail.

    Automatic mode can be used to create motion-blur effects as well as this mode features automatic exposure compensation so that your pictures are always perfectly exposed, no matter the shutter speed selected.  This mode  is like the shutter priority mode on a DSLR.

    Manual mode lets you set the shutter speed to compensate for low-light conditions. The longer the shutter speed, the more light it will accumulate.

    Light Trail mode also works best in low-light conditions, it allows to “paint” with light. You can capture any moving light in a unique beautiful way.

    All three modes are very easy to use, as you just need to select a shutter speed and then just point and shoot. Additionally the Light trail mode allows to select a sensitivity levels.

    Pay attention to the application settings and following instructions

    btw, I have used other slow shutter apps with the similar name. You could try some of them to decide as to which application works best for you.

    2. And now you can choose any way for further image processing.

    I have used MonoVu app.
    Actually I often use this app to  my monochrome works and I really love it.
    This app provides 10 free filters, as well as an extra 15  purchase filters. (some of them have a unobtrusive and simple textures)

    That’s all!
    Take it easy: all ingenious is simple! ;)

  • Tutorial 10 “Skinned Deep” or time to pay off debts ;)

    20032013
    FIN

    I have not written a new lesson for a long time for which I do apologize…while I’ve got several requests for clarification of various works.
    The reason is that I do not have that much free time I used to. However, I will do my best not to forget you permanently!
    Hope you had a great time!
    We’ll start from the beginning..So, it’s time to pay off my first debt! ;)

    “Skinned Deep”
    This work is one of several my weirdest, wicked, freaky, but still funniest work =)

    1.  I shot the original image with the ProCamera

    It is really easiest-to-use tool for taking good pics with your . It has several one-touch-effects (ProFX), as well as the full photo editing control with ProLab.
    Today is available so many new apps for capturing images. Some of them are great! However, I go back to ProCamera, from time to time.

    It should be noted it is a wonderful shot =) I mean, I like the light from the window (prudently I planted the doll on the window sill). However, I still have some things that I would like a slightly improve prior the big process.

    2. So, go to the Snapseed app and little bit improve it, using apps settings (adjust Brightness, Ambiance, Contrast, Saturation etc.). Note: Especially pay attention to the eyes!

    The resulting image

    As a result, I am happy with the received image

    3. Now comes the fun part =) Further, let’s process it using the Salvador Dali Camera

    Looks good for me ;) This is what I need!
    I would not say that it is a wonderful and an irreplaceable app, however, experimenting with it you can get a pretty good and fun result.
    By the way, I have a series of art works created with this app.

    4. Still, I improved it a bit, going back to the Snapseed app. As a result, I would get a really colorful image.

    …so here we are halfway to the goal

    5. Next, ran it through the Decim8  using BEAMRIDER effect

    Bit later you will realize the reason I done this step

    6. Finally, run it through the Tangled FX

    This app reminds me of Fractalius Photoshop plugin. It creates unusual, eccentric artworks in a single step. The effects are based on extraction of so-called hidden fractal texture of an image. You can also simulate various types of exotic lightings and high realistic pencil sketches. There are 16 unique filters to apply, and the best part is that you can tweak them with fine tuning sliders.
    You can also to pay attention to the ShockMyPic app. It is still a good app for doing crazy outlines blending.

    I really love it!!!
    BUT…
    …unfortunately during the last processed we have lost the eyes of our “monster-doll”… Honestly it’s not that I would like to get as a result …

    7. So, we shall go to the Blender app. and add eyes by blending with image received after processing by Salvador Dali camera (using the application settings “Arrange” and  ”Mask”…and choose Blend Mode)
    I added just one of the two, to enhance frightening view.

    That’s all! Hope you have someone to scare them with your crazy art works ;)

    ProCamera
