I love taking photos with my Iphone. It's handy, you always have your phone with you, and its so easy to just whip it out when something beautiful pops before your eyes. I often use them for inspiration for paintings. The apps out there for editing photos can be overwhelming. There are so many and some of them seem to need a degree to figure out how to use them. Of the few dozen paid and fee ones I have, one that I go to all the time is Enlight. For some reason, for me, it just has enough of everything I want. I also seem to learn something new about it every time I use it. One thing I use a lot is in the tool section, the mixer tool. It allows you to layer photos or copies of the same photo and change the blending mode, like you would in photoshop.
Here are a couple samples of the effects I created with two photos I quickly snapped out the window of the car while DH was driving. Before is on the right, after is on the left. All edits were done in Enlight.
And yet another ditch shot....
There is so much more that can be achieved I know, but that's the fun. Figuring it out as I go along 😉
