Greetings and salutations.
Yesterday I posted my first attempt at making an iPhoneography tutorial and I thought I would try another one. These two (yesterday’s and the one I am about to post) are relatively simple.
The focus of this image is the girl eating. It may not be the most obviously interesting subject, but I like to watch people, especially at public places like the airport. The idea here was to draw out the subject and let the background fade away.
I opened the photo is Gelo, which is a fun app for adding color gel like effects to your pictures. I picked out a darker purple shade.
- The little button here lets you select keeping your photo in color or changing it to black and white. My photo was already in black and white.
- I moved the opacity down to about 55-60%.
- This changes your type of overlay, from all over, to gradient, to a colored shape.
- There are three options: TINT, ADD, & OVER.
After Gelo, I opened it in Snapseed to perform a selective adjust on the subject, increasing the contrast and saturation.
Next I used Repix to blend out the background people more. I used the stains brush + and colored over the people in the background.
If you liked this let me know.
