It’s Challenger’s choice over at Sally D’s this week and I have chosen Travel as my topic. I happened to be doing some traveling last week and while on a layover in the Detroit airport I decided to try out a new combination in the Hipstamatic app.
The photo below was taken with the Adler lens/Teddy Roosevelt 26 film/Standard flash combination.
I am not a big fan of this combo. It is too blown out and flat for my taste, but I figured that with some simple editing I might be able to do turn it into something more acceptable.
My next move was to import the photo into the Toon Camera app and break it down into a basic black and white line drawing that I could then layer under the original image.
Here is how that turned out.
The last thing that I had to do was to combine the two images and for that I used the Image Blender app. Once I aligned the photos, I adjusted blending ratio of the foreground to the background and came up with this final image.
I like this layered image more than the original one, but I feel like more can be done to “punch” it up. For now I will put this in the On Deck Circle and return to it when my skills and knowledge improve.
