SOOC Saturday & Texture Twist

Here is my SOOC shot for Marvelous Mommy's link-up:

SOOC Saturday

And here is the edited version for Texture Twist:

I used a couple different textures from Kim Klassen to edit this photo. I believe (but am not certain) that I used golden and 2 layers of sweet treat, all with different blending modes and opacity. I am also entering this into Tara's LEM Challenge because this week's theme is Anything.



I am going to be featuring a different app
each week when I post my iPhone photos.

This week I am going to tell you about Camera Fun Free,
which is a shooting and editing app.

When you open the app, you can take a photo with the in-app camera, or choose a photo from your camera roll. If you use the in-app camera, you also get to preview your photo with the selected effect. Since I have the free version of this app, I only have 3 photo effects - canvas, sepia, and sketch. The sepia is a little bit too orange-y for my taste, and the canvas texture is so overdone that doesn't work with many photos (landscape and sky shots look okay). However, the sketch effect is very cool for abstract, high-contrast or infrared-type photos.

After you select a photo effect, you can then send to twitter or fb. One drawback - the new photo with the effect is not automatically saved. You have to remember to tap the "Save" button or you will lose the photo.

Here is a photo SOOP and with the 3 different effects applied:

And here are some more photos that I've used the sketch effect on:

Okay, that's all for today! I've got plenty of wedding planning to keep me busy.

Very pretty pink. I'm just getting into textures -- but they are very addictive. :)
