Hipstamatic, BlurFX, Iris Photo Suite, PhotoForge2, DistressedFX, Repix

 Backstory/Apps used: My usual technique is to "stack" effects from various apps, using masks to erase the parts I like and eliminate the parts I don’t. My goal here was to create a very painterly image.

Summer Roses
Summer Roses by Sarah Jarrett
Backstory/Apps Used: Part of my freelance work involves producing images that are licensed for cards and stationary. I’ve been making card imagery for the last fifteen years and never tire of this hungry market that always desires something new and different. I’ve returned to still life quite a lot recently for this. I am constructing these pictures in Superimpose – building with lots of individual elements taken from my pictures to make a new cohesive image. I was looking to create something quite vintage looking, romantic, antique with fresh but delicate colours. I move the picture into Procreate and add texture with paint to the objects, hand colouring and also balancing colour. My favourite paint brush in Procreate is Sable in the Organic set. I use Miracam and Laminar to tweak colours and contrast and finally add type from old bits of writing in Superimpose.

Day Dreamer
Day Dreamer by Paula Gardener
Backstory/Apps Used: 
I love portrait photography especially when the light is perfect. So anyone living in the UK will know the weather has been lousy lately. So the moment the sun is out, so did my iPhone. My son was watching me shoot some self portraits, while he was standing by the window the sunlight reflecting off his face was perfect. 
For post editing I used Snapseed, my favourite go to application. Firstly I enhanced the image within the ‘Drama’ menu and then changed the colour to black and white, tweaking the contrast. Finally I blurred the edges out using the ‘Tilt Shift’ menu, just to give more focus on his face. I chose the title ‘Day dreamer’ mainly because he actually wondered off mentally as I was shooting him. I think he was bored or just hungry, I was just glad he wasn’t pulling faces.
