Processing Steps: St. Johns Anglican Church ~ Hipstamatic ~ Snapseed ~ Glaze~ ImageBlender ~ Leonardo


St John's Anglican Church, Peggy's Cove, Nova Scotia is a much photographed subject! It's charming red roof and architecture is just fabulous...but there are some composition issues with distracting subject matter, like telephone wires and poles, houses etc..that make it tough for "straight" shots so I decided to shoot it with my iPhone from a slightly different perspective.
I used Hipstamatic to capture the original image below, crouching low to put the fall vegetation in the foreground as a good base to the image and to minimize the roof tops of the background structures.
Join me for my "Getting Started" iPhone Photography workshop sponsored by Capital Photography Center on November 9 at the National Portrait Gallery.
Or catch up with me at during one of my presentations at Nature Visions Photography Expo Nov 15-16.
Here's the process that I used to create the opening image:
Image 1. Original file captured with Hipstamatic Inas 1969 film and Jane lens combo
Image 2. Original file processed with Snapseed using the HDR Scape filter to pop the tones.
Image 3. Iteration 1 created in Glaze using the Workshop Mode and saved
Image 4. Iteration 2 created in Glaze using the Workshop Mode and saved.
Image 5. Iteration 2 blended in ImageBlender with image 2. the HDR version of original image and saved.
Image 6. Image 3 and 4 blended together in ImageBlender and saved.
Image 7. Image 6 blended with image 5 with selective masking applied.
Image 8. Image 7 blended with image 5 to mask in details in the church saved and then run through Leonardo, applying the clarity filter to taste.
