A good year for the clematis

By dudler
I am Learning, at present.

After being told off by relatives for the sound quality when we do video calls (apparently my cheap mobile and compact laptop are both lacking in the microphone department), I've got an iPad. My blog today is about trying to be a thoughtful photographer while you're making video calls.

It was cheaper than the mobiles that get rated for photography, which is intriguing in itself. And it prompted me to go into the garden and take this for Mobile Monday. A crop, a little Drama, and one of the Snapseed effects.

The pad is the most basic current one, but my luxury was an Apple Pencil. My word, that makes precision in cropping easy! (Remember, my previous experience is with a 70 Vodafone handset...)

The Snapseed filter has worked a treat.
My granddaughter loves to us this to change her face/hairstyle etc.

I shall have to see if I can add the original shot for comparison... It's added a sort of duskiness, not a great deal more.

I remain resolutely a Windows person, Roy - though I could be tempted away form my mobile 'phone some time. I don't like Android, or Google.

Altought I have zero experience from mobiles of this category (my own is a simple telephone with 2 Mpx camera, just for... emergency), I dare to say that it's better than I was imaginating, of course just to play with it, John.

Beautiful flowers and good processing. I like the lead image.

If an IPad is good enough for David Hockney producing his paintings, it should be O'K for the rest of us. All we still require is his ability!

I do prefer the colours in the version John, much brighter and saturated.

Janet - that just goes to show that processing is not necessarily a Good Thing. Especially using those filter thingies...

Lovely clematis, ours are still tiny. Only planted them last year.
i-Pad and all things Apple related Sad. Best not.
I think I agree with Chase. The version (original) looks more natural.

Apple stuff is great for people who don't want to get involved in techie stuff, or who like it shiny.

Lots of options for editing on one. Snapseed is usually found on mobiles, but you can get heavyweight editors as well. Lightroom, I think PS...

Have been using a Wacom pad and pen for a couple of years now, it certainly is a lot better than a mouse for photoshop work.

I've had a Wacom pad for ten years, and haven't currently got it connected. The difference is, I think, that with a Wacom, you are looking in one place, drawing in another. With the iPad and Pencil, you are drawing on the paper, not something off to the side.

Roll on the touch-sensitive full-size screen, I say.

Welcome yo the world of Apple, John. They make beautiful products, well thought put, great design....and they are totally Stalinist in their control over everything.

What kind of bonemeal are you feeding these !!
They are beautiful John... will have to ask my daughter about the snapseed filter ..she is the big apple user in the house. Happy gardening!
Cheers Walt
