Single Image Sundays: Inch Nail

26 Feb

20120226-154334.jpg

Macro view of a nail in the laundry room. Shot with my iPhone using a Photojojo macro lens and the Hipstamatic app, using its Buckhorst lens and Blanko film settings. I also raised the saturation and sharpened slightly in Photoforge 2. The untouched version of this image made the honor roll in a recent Instagram challenge, which inspired me to extend from my usual style and see what could be done within the limitations set by the contest, which indeed proved challenging, yet rewarding.

    This is a really cool photo. Although I am not a photographer, as soon as I saw it, I knew that it was taken by an iPhone. A friend of mine has a blog about all the different photography aps there are for iPhones, so I see the images all the time. If you are interested, her blog is http://ashcroft54.com/.

    I love that your blurb about you says that your views do not reflect those of your cats!

      Thank you for the kind words – I’m glad you dig this photo! And you’re correct – certain iPhone apps do have a “look” to them, especially Hipstamatic, which I used here. I’ll be checking out your friend’s blog for sure.

      And of course I make no claims of representing my cats’ views. Then again, most of my posts aren’t about sleeping, eating, and staring out the window. Thanks for commenting, Tammy!

    […] This week’s Single Image Sunday comes from my participation in a challenge on Instagram, the mxgxpx challenge, where participants are given three days and six images to craft some interesting visuals using only the Hipstamatic app and a certain lens & film combination. Entries are judged by the contest hosts, and the winner gets to pick the next lens/film combination. It’s a fun way to see what can be done with the app by its enthusiasts, and for someone like me who tends to stick with only a few combinations, it’s an encouraging way to challenge myself to see what can be done with combos I might not otherwise consider, as in the case of last week’s Single Image Sunday.
