I took this shot with my iPhone of one of the birdhouses in our backyard (left by the previous owner). It is perched on a piece of driftwood, and is very low to the ground. I haven’t seen any birds going in it, but I might be missing something. Do the quail or roadrunners fly up into it??? Seems like the opening is too small. My bird-knowledgeable friends need to help me out here.
Several apps were used as part of my process for this image. I forgot that I could take the shot in square mode, thus eliminating cropping it to a square afterward- so I needed to crop it in one of the apps. I used PicTapGo for this and also added a bit of warmth. I found myself really disliking the right side of the photo (rocks and an out-of-focus branch), so I then opened the photo in Snapseed and used the Tilt-Shift effect to blur out the unwanted parts of the image. Next, I added a texture in Mextures and a watercolor filter in Waterlogue. I finished it off by adding the word, Home, in Phonto. Five apps for one photo? Seems a bit extreme, but it worked for me this time.
As part of my quest to learn more about iPhoneography, I am linking up today with Barb’s new App-Happy Wednesday on Keeping With the Times. I’m eager to see what the other iPhoneographers have done- I’m such a newbie at all of this!
