One of the things I love doing is transforming an average photo into something intriguing. I use several methods – but here is one that I use often.
The photo was a little blurred to me and also I wasn’t happy about the whole composition. The first step was to edit it and enhance it a little. I opened the photograph in the ‘Photos’ app in Windows 10:
- I went into edit mode.
- I used Crop and Rotate to get the composition the way I wanted it.
- I used the Enhance tools and applied a Sauna filter to bring out the redness and dull the background.
- I adjusted the photo by reducing the light and increasing both the color and clarity.
I was fairly happy with the photo at this stage:
It still was a little blurry in parts – but to me it’s a better photo. It’s still not brilliant so I went online to dreamscopeApp.com and applied the ‘creamsicle’ filter to it.
Now the final photo still looks like a flower, but I feel it is far more interesting.
