A few of my blogging friends have established a new weekly challenge that encompasses the iPhone and different editing apps. And because my iPhone is one of my most-used cameras, I thought I’d jump right in and play along.
This first challenge is Nature, and due to my frequent walks on the paths of the State Arboretum of Virginia, I’ve recently collected a few images in this theme.
This photo was taken in Camera+ and edited using the Clarity filter. I then uploaded the photo to Color Efex Pro 4, where I used the Fujichrome Velvia filter. The latter filter mimics the color and grain of the Fuji Velvia slide film, one of my favorites of the past.
This film, at ISO 50, was fantastic for nature and for still life scenes with lots of color. The richness and depth of the colors sometimes bordered on unbelievable, but it was fun to use and great for experimentation.
