Surrounded

Surrounded by GR

Apps used: I use my favorite app for taking photos, the jag.gr 6×7. I set it on red filter (darkens sky) with a tif save. Open in Snapseed to straighten, crop and frame. Never edit the image itself, as the app is that good!
Backstory: living in the Florida Keys, our household consumes a lot of fish. Leftovers are routinely tossed to the birds and fish aroung our dock.

Frenzy

Apps used: I use my favorite app for taking photos, the jag.gr 6×7. I set it on red filter (darkens sky) with a tif save. Open in Snapseed to straighten, crop and frame. Never edit the image itself, as the app renders perfectly.
Backstory: Living in the Florida Keys, our household has seafood dinners several times a week. Unused scraps and leftovers are given to the fish and birds from our dock, daily. A family member tosses the fish remains, immediately drawing the wildlife. Ready with my iphone, I take as many snaps as possible during this brief time.

Backstory: Living in the Florida Keys, we all ways have fish scraps for the wildlife. A family member tosses the leftovers while I snap the camera.

Broken
Broken by dmhimages (Michael Hamments)

Apps used: Shot with iPhone and edited with Affinity Photo.
Backstory: I was getting ready to throw out a broken plastic blue bucket when I happened to notice the sunlight passing through it. The photograph was taken by placing the iPhone inside the bucket in such a way as to get both the shard of light and the shadow of the handle. Picture was cropped and curves balanced in Affinity Photo.

"speak to me with soft light"

speak to me with soft light by oola cristina

Apps used: Snapseed, Stackables, Procreate, Mextures
Backstory: The weather was glorious for several days last week. Still on the cool side but with clear blue skies. With all that’s been going on in our world, it was a joy to get down on the grass in the sunshine with a patch of lawn daisies and get some macros of what is one of my favorite flowers to photograph.

I first took the photo into Snapseed and used Retrolux to soften the image and mute the colors. Stackables next to add subtle texture and enhance the remaining color. Then into Procreate to add the little dots of light with one of the Luminance brushes. Finally, into Mextures to brighten the flower and to add to the mood.

Acer Japonicum

Acer Japonicum by occhio.privato

Apps used: hot with Hipstamatic 359 on an iPhone SE set to Müller Lens, Robusta Film, and RedEyes Gel Flash and then post processed in Hipstamatic only to crop it..
Backstory:
Backstory: Standing in my garden, observing the signs of spring and the Acer Japonicum overlooking a geometric background, it was there, waiting for my shoot.

Home

Home by tmbx (Tomaso Belloni)

Apps used: I shot with the default camera app on an iPhone 11pro max and edited in Snapseed and in Hipstamatic with one of my favorite combos (Vicuña CL Lens and Bream Film). Backstory: When one is forced to stay at home the opportunities for photography are somewhat reduced, but never brought down to zero. This is a corner of my room, a detail that came to my attention one of these mornings. The lines and the colors attracted me immediately.

twilight zone

twilight zone by jun yamaguchi

Apps used: iPod touch’s camera and edited with brushes+scratchcamfx+pictureshow+filterstorm+decim8+vsco+enlight+dxp+deco sketch+phototoaster

Shout at the Devil
Shout at the Devil by Paul Yan

Apps used: Phone: iPhone XS Max. Capture app: ProCamera
Processing app: Lightroom Mobile + Snapseed
Backstory: So who is the Devil? He’s not the notorious Lucifer or Māra or any monster with horns and a tail. He’s actually the personified amalgamation of grasping, aversion and the delusional egoistic notion of “I, me, mine” in every one of us that impedes us from true flourishing and entails mental and even physical sufferings, like a spider with its web ready to ambush and devour the incautious victims. It’s our task to confront and vanquish The Devil Inside.

The raw file was developed into jpeg in LightRoom Mobile and then dodged and burned locally in Snapseed.

Hope springs eternal. Happy Spring 🌹

Hope springs eternal! by Fleur Schim

Apps used: Shot with iPhone11pro using Camera+2 to shoot and edited with Snapseed.
Backstory: It was the first day of Spring. I had just returned home from my hike, between storms. The weather was absolutely lovely. I took a tour of my yard, and was rewarded with blooming flowers. Protea are gorgeous, intricate flowers that beg to be photographed. I placed a stool next to the plant, to steady my iPhone, and captured macro images in the camera+2 shooting app. I like this app as it enables me to photograph using image stabilization, and various options including portrait, macro, slow shutter, and raw. I minimally edited the bloom in Snapseed, as it was a show-stopper, as is.

IN-HOUSE TRAINING

IN-HOUSE TRAINING by aka Man

Apps used: Shot with iPhone8 and edited with Juxtaposer and Snapseed.
Backstory: “keeping a distance of at least 2 arms lengths (approximately 2 metres) from others, as much as possible” Public Health Agency of Canada. The above is basically the backstory and the result my comment on it via a sense of humour which I’m finding an essential ingredient in keeping some sort of grip on the mind f*^k the current calamity is causing to a large percentage of the populace of this planet and my selves.
The final take consists of two selfies in the same scenario taken with my iPhone 8 on a timer and using a tripod. Two layers and positioning done in Juxtaposer. Final editing with a few adjustments and framing in Snapseed and it sure gives me a good laugh with the result. Hopefully it will do the same for you. Stay safe and keep the creativity flowing and laugh often despite what may come.🙏
