Untitled (Memory pod 03 May 2014) copyright 2014 Douglas Stockdale
After downloading the Lomo Camera FX Free app for my Samsung 4, my PX buddy Jim McKinniss also suggested that I check out another free Samsung 4 app from Nik called Snapseed. I saw, I liked, I downloaded (my spin on an old Latin saying).
I guess that it is apropos that for my first evaluation of Snapseed I should work on my recent Memory Pod series. I was out this morning continuing to photograph the seed pods and I picked out this composition to evaluate. To learn this app I kinda pushed the FX envelop!
I am not a big fan of heavy manipulated photographs, but it has been a long time since I really tweaked an image. This may not be a final image in my project, but this was fun to play with. Since I am not making notes as I go and jumping from mode to mode, I don’t have a clue as to how I got to this final image, although I think at one point I was in the Grunge mode. I am sure as I play around with this some more, I will figure it out. And if I find that this image grows on me, I had better figure out what I did if I want to recreate the effect again!
This free Samsung 4 app is rated F for fun!
