Having a very lazy Jubilee Tuesday trying out a couple of apps I have just stumbled across for my ipad….huge fun! Well, I’ve earned it after I spent an hour in the garden and wore myself out for the day.
First up was Tiny Planets, an app that creates stereographic projections – a technique that basically turns your photo into a sphere. I quickly realised that I was getting the best effects with more linear images….here is one:
Just looks like a well? But it was a door in a wall….
Next I tried ScratchCam, which really appealed to me as it has quite a number of effects to apply. you can make things look old, mysterious, forlorn,abandoned etc etc. For whiling away a few hours in creative bliss instead of watching rubbish on the box I would heartily recommend it…
Of course, some of the best effects will come from using more than one app to create a final image…one here
I think some of these might make great prompts for poetry….that’s for another day.
