Slam on brakes; swerve to the right. Every once in a while, I’ve got to try something different. I hadn’t touched a camera since last weekend so this morning before we headed out for a quick visit to Barnes & Noble, lunch at Panera’s and a trip to the Farm Market; I packed a small backpack with the unlikely arsenal of my 30D with the Lensbaby and accessories and my IR-converted Rebel XT with a 50mm f/1.8 lens. By the time we hit the Farm Market, I had yet to hold a camera or, obviously, take a picture.
But that was soon to end not with the 30D and Lensbaby nor with the IR-converted XT but rather with my iPhone camera. I made a series of fruit and veggie images with the iPhone and when I got home, processed them using Nik filters in Photoshop CS4. This particular image was processed with Nik Dfine for noise reduction and Viveza 2 for some global brightness, contrast, saturation and structure adjustments. I then moved into Color Efex Pro where I ran it through the Glamour Glow filter followed by the Vignette Blur filter. And I finished with just a touch of Sharpener Pro.
I kinda like the results. Your thoughts?
