Going into July, I thought I would try to go back and revisit a theme for the month-
When I started doing a photo a day, I made myself stick to a theme every month. I managed to do this for almost a year and a half, before I burned out on coming up with themes. But I thought it might be nice to try it again and see how it goes. So for this month, it is going to be working every week with a different iPhone app. This is also coinciding with a class I am taking on iPhoneography with Bob Weil (you can see some of his amazing iPhone work here)and will also push me to try some different things.
One of the challenges that has been ongoing for me once I started to venture into the world of textures and overlays has been the dreaded “O” word-overprocessing. Sometimes it is called for, but it is really easy to cross the line into overdone and overwrought and then you just have a mess. So this month will be as much about experimenting and showing both what works and what does not for me.
The following image was taken in a field near the house I was working on in Currituck. I used the app Distressed FX and will be working with that this week. I have mixed feelings with this app–it crunches the heck out of the pixels and I am not always enamored with the filters. But I finally sat down and watched the tutorial about it-something I am not always good about doing and then tried to work with it again.
