iSplash: Create Black and White Photographs With a Selective Splash of Color
Yesterday, after taking my wife out for a Mother’s Day Brunch at our clubhouse, I decided that I wanted to snap a photograph of her with Sonoran desert views in the background.
I didn’t have my trusted Nikon D80 along, so I pulled the iPhone 4 out of my pocket and snapped the following photograph.
Although my wife made for a beautiful model, the photograph was a bit grainy, and the flash wasn’t powerful enough to get rid of the shadows on her face.
Scratching my head a bit, I wondered how I might turn this somewhat ordinary photograph (not you honey, you’re not ordinary) into something a little more appealing to look at.
As I gave it some thought, I remembered that I had just downloaded the iSplash app from the Apple App Store.
I launched the program, and in less than five minutes, I was able to produce this version of the photograph.
Now, this photograph isn’t likely to win me a Pulitzer prize. But, it does take a fairly common scene, with a fairly mediocre quality photograph and make something quite unique.
I posted this on our personal Facebook page and received quite a few comments.
I’m looking forward to experimenting with iSplash on a few of my hi-res photographs.
Well, if you wondered “how’d they do that”, there you go.
A splash of color against a black and white background.
I like it!
Try it out, and then come back and share your results.
