My last word is that it all depends on what you visualize.
Before I get to this picture, I want to say something about the quote. I think some of my coolest photos are ones that I’ve visualized ahead of time. I know of other great photographers that do this as well, so there must be something to it. Before you go shoot your portraits, wedding, events, landscapes, or whatever, take some time to relax and visualize what the photos will look like before you get out there.
You should also get in the habit of seeing what your final product will look like when you’re out in the field, not what actually lies before you. I used to see things in high contrast black and white. These days I think I see more in HDR.
Now, about this image, yesterday I saw something with an interesting design on it, and instead of taking a regular picture of it, I thought I’d use Kaleidoscope camera. I boosted the contrast, saturation, and sharpened a bit. Done.
Kaleidoscope Camera by Binary Noise Ltd. is a great alternative to the typical camera app. It makes it very simple to create unique images from everyday objects.
Kaleidoscope Camera provides a real time view with smooth interactivity that makes adjusting your image very easy. There are 6 different mirror configurations that range form a spiral to a mandala.
After you take the picture, you are given the option to save to your album, post to facebook, or email it to someone. Theres nothing complicated about this app. Continue Reading
I was fortunate enough to get a couple of apps from developers this weekend. All of the images in this post were made using Kaleidocam. I also used LensLight on the first image to add the glowing sun to the middle.
I told the developer of Kaleidocam I’d wait until the update to give it a proper review. After seeing these images you might be tempted to just buy it before then. Its super easy to use with a live view of the effect. Thats all I’ll say for now.
I also wanted to thank you for voting for me in the recent contest. I took 2nd place and got $20. The winner was another landscape with a road. You can check out all of the winners here.
