This will be the last iPhoto iOS lesson for a bit. But, I wanted to show some editing on a “regular” photo rather than using the Paper Camera images I edited in Lessons 85 and 86.
This sculpture recently appeared in a park in my neighborhood. It’s a pretty dramatic sculpture all on its own, but somehow the drama doesn’t quite translate in the photo taken in the Apple Camera app. Perhaps because this was taken on an overcast day with very even lighting–as you may recall from Lesson 16, lighting makes all the difference.
In any case, I used iPhoto to bring back the drama and maybe even add a little extra. Here’s what I did:
Choose an image that is lackluster. Yesterday we played with the Exposure settings. That’s a good way to add drama as a starting place. Now try using the saturate brush and “Drama” effect in iPhoto to see if you can create an image that really “pops.”
