Apps In Action – Diptic

French Roads

In April 2010 I crossed France by bicycle. My first travel with iPhone. The way is geotagged in the exif data of the photos I made.
The following photo is made near Foix in the Arriège valley (Pyrenees).
At this early days as an iphoneographer, I only used the built in camera app of the iPhone 3GS. So I was only able to make photos of some quality, when the light was bright enough.
Now, at the time I write this post, one year has passed. I pimped my iPhone with some great photo apps. So I’m able to process the old pictures. The following one is filtered twice by Dynamic Light. I made an Orton shot and an Ultra Contrast shot, which I both combined in Pro HDR to the final photo.

Remake Of A 1988ths Photo

The growing experiments with different high end apps on the iPhone made me try something: I sent a scanned picture by mail to my iPhone. I made the snapshot 1988 in central Greece with an old Kodak or Agfa Camera. The light was terrible. I had no experience with photography. But the scene was unique: a burned wooden electric pole hanging in the air. We could still smell the fire.

On the iPhone I cut the scan 1:1 for a square format (PS Express), improved contrast with Dynamic Light’s Ultra Contrast filter and gave the photo an antique look with Pic Grungers Acid (full strength on After Hour filter)
