Carbuncle Cup winner or keystone of local regenation: either way, Tesco looms large over General Gordon Square in Woolwich. I’m told the flats upstairs are nice, though.
Shot this on my iPhone while passing on the bus to Plumstead last night, then processed it with Snapseed app – just to keep in practise, really. If I could be bothered, I’d load it up to my computer and clean up the window reflections, but I’m not sure I’m that fussed about it.
By miniature steam train to Britain’s only official desert, on a cold and blustery Easter Saturday.
Mostly shot on Fuji X100t (a couple may have slipped through from the iPhone); shot at Dymchurch station, wandering – briefly – around Dungeness in between trains, or from the top of Dungeness Lighthouse.
Edited in Snapseed on the iPad then transferred to desktop in a particularly convoluted and painful process: I either need a bigger iPad or to give up the idea of a seamless camera > wireless transfer > iPad > blog/Flickr/social workflow for the time being.
Apart from anything else, the colours look very different between my iPad and my desktop’s screen; what was a pleasing slight warming of the black and white tones on the iPad has turned more murky on my Dell monitor than I had hoped. Which is ‘correct’? I suppose I should dig out my monitor calibration device…wherever it is.
All shot on an iPhone 6s+, then processed in Snapseed iOS app. Here follows the magic formula* for B&W conversion in Snapseed:
- Contrast +10%
- Drama +20% (don’t be put off when you open this filter and find it defaulted to a deeply unpleasant 90%)
- Convert to Black & White: ‘Neutral’
- Apply a colour filter in the Black & White conversion filter, to taste
- Warmth +8%
- Vignette: to taste, depending how cluttered your corners are
- Frame: whatever (but here’s something I have learnt: the more film-like the frame I use, the more I regret it later).
*Not a magic formula, obviously; but a useful shortcut, hopefully. All values above approximate.
