This shot couldn’t have come out much better. I was driving about 65 mph and saw this dirt path leading to an oak tree. I got my iPhone ready and pressed the shutter when I thought I could get a shot without a car blocking the view.
I kind of missed these oak trees. They’re my favorite. Of course, now I miss the forests of Oregon.
Shot with camera+. Edited with TouchRetouch, Snapseed, and FilterStorm. Ugh Filterstorm. It took about 15 minutes to save this time because of poor coding. If I cancel a filter, it shouldn’t go through the process of rendering and canceling it during the save process.
When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.
I’ve been known to snap a few pics while driving, but its not something I ever recommend. The storm clouds around Black Butte near Mt Shasta City, CA looked pretty dramatic and I immediately thought it would make a killer black and white image. I still haven’t found an app that gives me full control for black and white conversion, so I’m not 100% pleased with the results here. I want something similar to Nik Software’s Silver Efex Pro2.
Shot with Camera+, edited in Snapseed and PhotoToaster. The workflow was a bit different on this one. I had to crop first because I didn’t want the dash of my car in the shot. Then I made my edits in Snapseed for drama, converted to black and white with PhotoToaster, and then made some selective adjustments and added more drama in Snapseed.
