For my digital playtime this week I am playing around with a photo of a couple of apples from my one year old apple tree – the variety is Fuji and while it is not the most colourful of apples it fruit tastes of nectar!
To be honest I can’t quite remember how I got to the variation below, I know I inverted and then changed the colour with hues and saturation. At some stage I used some artistic filters and the sharpen mask and texturizer. My photo manipulation much of the time actually consists of random fiddling!
A version full of colour.
An abstract version of the apples
Here I inverted the first version again, fiddled and went into duotone. For the one below I put a mask and a frame from photoscape in the antique filters. This last one is my favourite as to me it represents the taste of the apple. I am thinking of trying the techniques from this one on some old family photos or a still life.
So this is my entry for Mandarin Orange Monday, it always amazes me you can do with a simple photo.
