I’ve been experimenting with some new (to me) apps this last week, and what a pleasure it has been to try something new in my creative process! It feels good to get out of my comfort zone. It reminds me that experimentation and play are big keys to the creative process, and even a little time spent in this mode can go a long way.
Here are a couple of the apps and edits….
Since I like to incorporate the moon and space into my images now and then, the Alien Sky app by Brain Fever is one I decided to try. I’ve seen it used for a while, but wasn’t sure it would fit my style. Turns out, the app has a lot of customization and settings which makes it useful for many styles, including mine. What fun!
This week friend and fellow iPhone photographer Lorraine Richey presented about her process at our monthly PhotoArts Guild meeting, which inspired me to try another Brain Fever app, called Circular. This app takes your image and twists it, creating a tiny planet or much, much more. I used Circular on one image to create an abstract background, layered it with a tree image, then used Circular again to twist things around. Way cool!
Have you tried a new app lately? I’ve tried a few here and there recently, but they’ve mostly felt the same as other apps with nothing super unique. These two add something new and different to my creative toolbox, which means they get to stay.
Off to play!!
