#stilllifelounge Sunday Showcase
This week in the lounge we looked at groupings of thee items. As always, our community got creative and shot many different subjects. It is always a treat to see what our mobile photographers come up with. Our highlight this week is a wonderful woman named Rose, @rmsherwood. Not only does she have a beautiful eye for detail she is also continuously supportive of the mobile community, not to mention a champion of the photographers of the lounge when criticized. I loved her photo because of the soft, competing textures against the stitching of denim. I really want to run my fingers across the feather, don’t you? Or crunch those leaves? This shot is a tactile dream.
Here is what Rose had to say about her photo:
First of all I must thank @annacox and @ikebana_jen for the wonderful stilllifelounge concept. It has been a weekly pleasure to see what they have in store for us to hone our looking skills. It is a long standing tradition in photography to be an arranger, either before taking the photo or after taking the photo through the editing process. My style is to arrange after the bits and bytes have arranged themselves and have settled on whatever “surface”they settle upon! This digital phase does confound me!
This image was taken with the Hipstamatic app using Jane lens and Ina’s 1935 film. It was edited in Snapseed for cropping, fine adjustments and sharpening details and a vintage filter. The result was saved and taken to the Image Blender app and a 50% blend was created and saved. Pixlromatic was then used to frame: a dirty frame and also a clean frame was used. Squareready was the last app for the final presentation of shadowing and framing. A fairly easy fast edit.
Thank you to wearejuxt for giving me a little spot. It is so appreciated and quite a nice surprise although my husband will not understand any of this artsy stuff…!
Many thanks to Rose and our other photographers for their continued support and encouragement. It is them who make instagram a richer, more enjoyable experience for Jen and I. To play along with us on a weekly basis check out @ikebana_jen or @annacox on Sundays for a new theme.
