Something to share in every single week throughout the year

Week 1 – Iphone Art/Photography


When we look at the name of this photo we will assume that the photo was taken a long time ago, but actually this picture was created only in few days ago using Iphone 4s and processed with some great apps (ScratchCam, PhotoToaster and Dynamic Light).

Nowadays, many people enjoy using mobile phones to take instant photos. I guess one of its advantages is that we can get instant artistic result! Images being applied with filters and effects, will instantly transform into something very pleasant to look at. I love it and it is so fun! πŸ˜€

  4. Never really thought about how the appearance of the photograph aside from the actual image affects the perception of that image.
    Absolutely right about the aged vs. the original.
    Well done!

  7. I was rather disappointed to find out that it was just iPhone+Apps but… Oh, well, that’s the power of technology!

    Honestly, though, the way I see it, the edited version has much more value than the “before” version.
