A Challenge Completed
I somewhat impulsively joined the 21 Day Juice Challenge on instagram a few weeks ago. It was a good idea for me, because I was getting bored with my phone photos and needed a reason to practice. I drink smoothies several times a week normally- how hard would it be to do it every day and take a photo?
Well, I actually enjoyed the project and was inspired to try new combinations of ingredients so that my photos wouldn’t all be the same. I also tried to use different apps and styles most days- although at the end I was pretty dry creatively. There was only one day where I didn’t like the smoothie I made- Day 15- but at least I got a good photo!
I wish I could say that I created the layout on my phone, but I didn’t- I used Lightroom. The two apps that I used the most were Snapseed for a basic edit- and Pixlr Express. I also used Mextures, PicStitch, and Rhonna.
And here is a bonus shot I took at our Courthouse Square over the weekend.
I used Snapseed (basic edit), Mextures, and Pixlr Express for this shot of these wonderful musicians. I used one of the stylize filters in Pixlr Express to create a painted effect- I think I did it twice- and then blurred the whole image, brushing it off the main subjects. I finished it off with a texture from Mextures- and then back into PixlrExpress for the frame. All completed while binge-watching Damages (with Glenn Close) on Netflix!
Linking up with App-Happy Wednesday today!
