Circular+ is free today. Its pretty fun to play with and helps to create unique images. Here are some that I’ve made using Circular+
Circular+ by BrainFeverMedia
This is a very cool app that is very good at what it does. It’s one that I used to edit the previous post today. You should grab it while it’s free.
Here are a couple more examples of images I created with circular+
I have some exciting news to share. I’m going to be helping Meri Walker teach iPhoneography to a class of 6th graders, starting this month. I think its pretty cool that this is being considered art in a public school. When I first started playing with my iPhone, I sure never thought I would be teaching iPhoneography in a school setting one day. It should be a lot of fun teaching the kids how to create art on their mobile devices, over 6 weeks time. I’m sure I’ll be sharing that experience on here, in the coming weeks.
About today’s image…
I dusted off my iPro macro lens this weekend, and stalked ants in the kitchen. I know this isn’t normal behavior, but I didn’t have anything better to do that day.
I wanted to see how much detail I could capture of an ant, and I wanted to see how big I could make them in a reasonably sized image. I ended up cropping in pretty tight on the image, but thats fine, since I had no intention of printing this.
I edited with Snapseed, and then used Circular+ to create a mirrored image.
Now, there is a real ant crawling on the screen of my iMac, right over this macro image. How confused must that guy be?
Happy Halloween! Quick post today because I’m supposed to be finishing up an article right now, and then heading out to shoot a bit at Lithia Park in Ashland. Oh and I should probably look for a costume for tonight’s party…gotta run!
I used Circular+, Snapseed, and Mextures for the edit of this one.
I’m not even going to attempt to spell the real name out here, but for short, this place is called Lake Chaubunagungamaug. It just rolls off the tongue. Below is my original shot. Nice enough, but nothing spectacular.
One of the first things that came to mind for this shot was to try editing with Circular. I zoomed in a little bit, inverted the image, added a second repetition, and rotated until I liked the composition. Then, I added some colorful clouds, for interest. I took the image to Snapseed after all that to add a touch of saturation and contrast. That was it, done.
I wasn’t crazy about this lake. It was hard to find access to the shoreline and the colors weren’t peaking yet. Also, I couldn’t believe they normally charge $30 to enter the small park that my cousin and I found.
Egmont shared on facebook recently that Circular+ was free. It looks like it still is, and I highly recommend it.
Not only can you create tiny planets with Circular+, but you can choose to repeat the image, which allows you to customize your planet.
Inverting the tiny planet effect is also very cool, as you can see below in the image of the building.
What sets this app apart from other planet apps is the ability to add some effects from brainfevermedia’s other apps. There are flares, planets, birds (dear god, why??,) and even some creative centers that you can place on your planet, like I did in the first example.
