Day 41, Bonus

For about the past 6 weeks I’ve been experimenting with image manipulation using the Aviary app. While I enjoyed manipulating photos and making them look otherworldly, I’ve had the most satisfaction from manipulating photos of my own work. I thought I’d post some pictures of the effects, with the before and after images. Before, piece of drop cloth:

    • Thanks Sally! Your links are very useful to me as they more cover changing perspectives and lines, which Aviary doesn’t do. Do check it out – I love Dean, Avenue and New York filters, as well as Caroline.

      Do you fancy a swap – send me an image and I’ll mess with it, and I’ll send you something?
