I'm at it again with the cabbages. I've discovered that I can go back and rework the Camera 360 pics at a higher resolution and with better controls. This is from last fall's pictures. I've been having too much fun!
Taking shots in the dark is always interesting with an iPhone, or any camera I think. The lantern was all completely the brightest of reds, but being a light source, the poor camera had to find a way to make parts of it lighter. I was delighted with the results.
Each equinox, the sun rises right up East Capitol Street here on Capitol Hill, just like at Stonehenge. It's become something of a tradition for me to get up and see if I can catch it. This photo was taken from a little island in the middle of the street where the street splits to go around Lincoln Park. This year, the Equinox was on a Saturday, so there is very little traffic at sunrise. On a weekday, there would be a steady stream of commuters pouring in.
Taken with my iPhone, using Camera 360. I've been working a lot with the cartoon filters, and layering various effects. This app has been steadily improving, and has considerable control now.
My "PAINTING with PIXELS" course starts in less than two weeks! This will be it's maiden voyage, and there is so much still to do. (Click here for info)
"Pizza Burp Poetry", Vintage low res painting from the 90's.
I'm illustrating this with one of my much earlier computer works, done in 256 colors and very low resolution back in the early 90's. The fancy fellow is supposed to be a poet or orator, speaking in public in ceremonial garb. However, my friend took one look at it, said "looks like a pizza burp", and "Pizza Burp" he has been ever since.
One of the things I like about using my iPhone as a camera is it's small size, and the fact that the tiny lens is located very close to the corner edge. I can get very close, or maybe even within my subject. This seed head looks like a giant dandelion puff, and stands about four feet tall.
I used several different filters and adjustment controls from Camera360
