Shopping and Shooting: Creating Mood with Apps: ScratchCam:OldPhotoPro:Noir:Iris

Yesterday, I went shopping. There is a home furnishings and accessory store I love in Rehoboth called Tulip and I always make a stop there when I am at the beach. While shopping I fell in love with the amazing collection of unique lamps they had on display. So I went to work whipped out my iPhone and made some bracketed shots with BracketMode for processing later. At the end of the day at home I processed these images in a similar way going for a moody retro look. ScratchCam is great for adding texture and Old PhotoPro is great for toning. Noir is super for enhancing selective lighting and vignettes. So I combined the three apps after processing the bracketed shots in iCamHDR.
Here are two of the shots in color after processing them in iCameraHDR and the Converted shots. I also applied Perfect Photo sharpening to the finished shots, and I used TouchRetouch to take out the wooden furniture in the beaded lamp image on the right.

  1. I've just discovered your beautiful blog. I've recently become so excited about iphone photos and apps and I am blown away by your photos. Thank you so much for sharing. Margaret

  2. Why thank you Margaret. I appreciate your comments, have fun making images with your iPhone!

  3. I'm very impressed with the first image. I generally don't consider the "grid lines" that you've used so effectively here. I will have to reconsider.

    Enjoying the PNW weather yet?

  4. Thanks Dick for stopping by my blog!

  5. Grandview WA? Did you drive that far west or did the truck come east?
