As I wrote earlier this month, I got new software to work on my photos. Today I played a little around with the various filters. Even though I am aware of the math and physics behind filters and have coded filters myself at work, I am always very fascinated to see what they can do. Look at the photo above. It makes me look like I am flying, sort like I have no contact to the ground. This filter also enhances the bow detail of this dance dress.
In the photo below, I used a different filter, a filter that was designed for enhancing people’s features. Look how visible my very eyeshadow becomes with this filter despite it is only barely there when you stand in front of me. I rather put eyeshadow on twice a day than having it too obvious. Now compare with my eyes in the photo above. Also look at how the two different filters enhance my nude colored lips differently. Light bluish blush rose pink vs. a warmer rose pink. Both filters totally blend out the structure of my tights. I totally think it is worth testing out different filters to emphasize/lead the eyes to what you want to show. Do you play with filters?
