Photo taken with the Obscura camera app, edited in Photos and PS Express. More a case of exploring what the app can do than producing a good image,
ProCamera again. I didn’t feel this one needed much editing, and finally chose just a little adjustment in PS Express.
Original photo using my favourite camera app, Pro Camera.
Then Decim8 to add some weird, and IColorama to blend the two versions together.
My original photo was taken with one of the filters in the camera app Obscura, and cropped in Photos.
I added colour with Tangent and Union, then the circular mask with Union.
We moved house about 6 weeks ago, and my book making equipment, materials etc. are still packed in boxes in what will, I hope, eventually be my work room. The same room also contains most of our other books, and my sewing gear, though not, fortunately, my knitting wool and needles.
One thing I have been doing since we moved is taking lots of photos of the views from our new house. So, desperately needing some sort of creative outlet, I have been playing around with my photos and the excess of apps I have on my iPad.
This one was taken with the Obscura camera app. I don’t really understand how to get the best from it, but it took some good photos this evening. This is the original.
The processing apps I used were Distressed FX for added colour and corvids – we have plenty of real ones but they are never around when you want them – and PhotoToaster to take the colour away and add a bit of a moody vignette.
The key words from Tetenbaum and Chen’s cards were grid and symbol, which said maths to me, plus accordion and black and white, although I couldn’t resist a touch of red. Structure from Esther K Smith’s How to Make Books.
Paper, digital print, card, paint, pen, elastic.
A stab-bound book, made to criteria randomly selected from Tetenbaum and Chen’s Artists Books Ideation Cards. It was inspired by James Fenton’s poem, Yellow Tulips, and my own photo of tulips, though they weren’t yellow.
Handmade paper, card, digital prints, knitting ribbon. The app IColorama was used for the illustrations.
