This is an iPhoneography image of my wife having some fun dangling at the park. I quite liked the original capture and decided to use it as a base to get to know a few apps that I do not use as often as I should. This was basically a doodle but I recorded my processes. Very often when I’m not totally sure what I’m trying to achieve the result is surprising. Then I think, how did I do that?

iPhone photography apps used:

iPhoneography - Dangling

{ dangling }

By

Process and apps used

6×6 ~ Initial capture:

iPhoneography - 6x6

PS Express ~ Increase Exposure x3:

PS Express - exposure boost

PS Express ~ Reduce noise:

PS Express - reduce noise

Pro HDR ~ Import both dark and light versions to generate enhanced detail within the silhouette:

The combination of PS Express and Pro HDR is a real favourite of mine to pull the maximum amount of detail out of an iPhoneography image. In effect faking a High Dynamic Range process:

ProHDR

Snapseed ~ Drama filter:

Snapseed - Drama

PicFX ~ ‘Old School’ filter:

PicFX - Old School Filter

Texture+ ~ Adjust Hue:

Texture+ - Hue

Texture+ ~ Add texture:

Texture+ - Texture

Blender ~ Combine both the textured and untextured versions under a ‘normal’ blend but mask the texture out of the figure:

Blender - layer / mask

Filterstorm ~ Clone out the wire:

Filterstorm is probably the app I use most to replicate desktop processes – most specifically for my style, cloning, cropping, resizing and adding text. It has a vast array of ‘high end’ features but I don’t make use of them all. For example for complex layering and masking I tend to use PhotoForge2 or SuperImpose and for more simple layering I go with Blender. This is just a habit and not necessarily a recommendation:

Filterstorm - clone

Pixlromatic+ ~ ‘Splattered’ effect added (I decided I didn’t quite like the version achieved via the previous processes):

Pixlromatic+ - splattered texture

Blender ~ same process as previously, combine both the textured and untextured versions under a ‘normal’ blend but mask the texture out of the figure:

Blender - layer / mask
