Y’all, are you familiar with the SuperPhoto app for smart phones? It’s pretty new, I think, and I’m LOVING it! It’s free, so you’ll want to gift yourself with this app. The filters are fun to play with, but the Painting filter is my absolute favorite.
We’re going to walk through some images today. I’ve been experimenting with the Painting filter. Here are our categories:
- Wiry coat terriers
- Fluffy dogs
- Smooth coat dogs
Wiry Coat Terriers
Right up front I’ll tell you what I think works best with most filters – close up shots of the subject matter. Filters usually diffuse the subject somewhat, so you want a tight shot with distinct features. No blurry photos! Filters aren’t usually going to “fix” your shot. You want the filter to enhance your work of art! And I can’t speak to landscapes and filters, since that’s not what I’m about. Now, let’s begin with the wiry coat terriers, since mine are especially photogenic. 😉
See the reflected light in Gadget’s eye? You want a crisp photo if you can get it. A bit of blur makes for a muddy photo. The filter is enough to blur the treat reflected in that eye. 🙂
I love love love what the SuperPhoto app for smart phones does with the wiry coat. Chewy’s colors come through, as does his personality. Now for a fluffy dog!
My Patches is an Australian Shepherd mix. She’d just finished eating a K9 Bacon Roller and was pining wistfully for another. Poor dear. I love that I can’t see her age in this photo. Just her beauty. Let’s take a look at a cat, now.
Beyonce’ has green eyes and they’re mesmerizing. I love that her stripes are wavy here. She’s a pretty cat in real life, and the SuperPhoto app does her justice. Next up, we’ll look at a couple of smooth coat dogs.
Smooth Coat Dogs
I think this is Gus, Stella Rose’s little brother. His expression comes through loud and clear. Do you know what he’s saying? He’s saying, “Give me another Windee, please. Now.” Those Three Little Pugs LOVE Jones Natural Chews Windees! And even an all-black dog comes through with texture and character with this app.
Check out the grass under this Boxer. Cool, huh? I’d just given this handsome boy a pizzle and he was begging for more treats. Smart dog.
Do you see what I mean about getting a crisp photo, details intact, prior to using the SuperPhoto app? The wording on this shot is blurred. But Pixie’s disappointment in not winning is definitely evident. I gave her a bit of Beef Liver Jerky to make her feel better. And it did. Finally, let’s look at people.
People are tricky with the Painting filter. Sometimes they look dirty where there was just a hint of shadow in the original. I suggest you play with filters and photos to find what works for you. Sometimes the results are amazing, sometimes not. I’m liking this photo of my boy and his mustache, though. He like to play around with facial hair. Let’s look at another human bean.
I find this photo very touching. I do love what the SuperPhoto app for smart phones does with it, using Painting. One last photo, yes? Me. And I’ll show it to you using three different filters. Tell me which you think works.
This is me with the Painting filter. Digging how Weird Al’s Obi Wan Kenobi face looks. But see how the shadows make my face look like it has a gross growth there on the left side? That’s the filter.
Weird Al’s eyes look kinda creepy here, but this is the Smooth filter.
And this is the Monochrome filter for SuperPhoto.
Y’all, this isn’t a paid post for the app. Jessica, at You Did What With Your Wiener, posted a photo on FaceCrack and I had to have the app. It’s by far my favorite photo app, as you can see. I thought maybe you’d want to know about it.
