How I Did It!™ Video Tutorial; Creating Unique Abstracts with Your iPhone!

European Weeping Beech Abstract

One of the great joys of working with the iPhone is the ability to create the things you can imagine, no matter how bizarre or unusual they may be.

For me, there's no better way to express myself in this way than through the creation of abstracts based on real objects.

In this video I'll be working with one of my favorite subjects: trees. I enjoy them in all seasons, colors, shapes, and stages of decay and the process I'll share in this video has given me another reason to appreciate their beauty and complexity.

While I love to photograph trees just as they are, sometimes I get the urge to present them in a new and different way, as I did this past week when I went on a creative spree creating abstracts based on the trees I love.

What You'll Learn
  • We'll walk through the app, Glaze. It's an app that is designed to create a variety of very edgy painterly effects. It's been around for a while but for me it was only recently that I began to rediscover the effects it can produce and how this can be a starting point for creating unique images.

  • I'll share how to create a transparent background using the masking feature in the Glaze app. This will give us a great abstract image to work with as the basis for our final image.

  • We'll use the app Image Blender and select blend modes to blend in a variety of ways, such as blending the abstract image with the original.

  • We'll blend the abstract image with a host of textures. I'll be using Flypaper textures, but you an also create your own textures. 

  • Finally we'll explore a variety of ways to finish your image, getting the tone and patina just the way you want it. We'll see how other apps like Lens Light, SnapSeed, and Snow Daze can offer ways to put finishing touches on your image.
