I have struggled so much with finding good photos lately...the month of August, for me, is very much like the month of February. All the color (except for green!) is gone from my yard, and a lot of the green has turned to brown because of the heat. It's too hot to go out in search of photos...so thank goodness for my iphone! I try to at least get some photos here and there throughout the week...and then I have fun experimenting with all my apps! I took a screenshot of my latest Instagrams to use for this week's This or That Thursday.
Camera apps have become my new obsession...I'm always on the lookout for new ones. A few of my latest favorites were used in the photos above.
For the "One Day at a Time" photo, I used Blender and layered two photos together. The words are actually a sticker (black text on white paper) that I took a photo of.
For the journal photo, I added the hearts with Bokehful. This app lets you add a variety of bokeh (circles, hearts, stars, etc.) to your phone images, and the best part is that you can choose: 1) the color of the bokeh, and 2) where you want the bokeh to appear simply by touching the screen!
For the "take time for the view" photo, my very drab photo of a seagull on a street lamp (taken in the grocery store parking lot!) became pretty thanks to the "100 Cameras" app. I also added the little bit of bokeh at the bottom with a "Picfx" filter (under their Light section). I added the text using "Phonto".
For my sweet Ruby (corgi) photo, I used a new app I found called "SigNote". It allows you to put your own writing on your photos - very cool! For a great youtube tutorial about this app, click HERE.
Regardless of the various apps I use, I always process my photos first from my camera roll and then post them to Instagram as my last step when they're ready to be shared. It's funny, I used to download music to my itunes, but now I download camera apps to my iphone! Times, they are a-changing. :)
