We cant wait to see what you come up with in July so get your phone cameras clicking (we still make that noise in our head) and get your image in - you could be a winner!
It is. It's a state park that was a working ranch and runs from the coast up into the hills. Around the house here, there's a cluster of the old ranch buildings, including workshops where they have demos during non-COVID times. Lots of old machinery around plus some sheep, goats, and chickens. Lots of trails also -- I haven't explored them all yet. It's only a few minutes north of Santa Cruz, so it's easy to get to, and I buy a day pass for the state parks each year.That looks like an interesting place.
As best I can remember...Fabulous how did you capture this effect?
Definitely did the job. The only app there on my list is Slow Shutter Cam, always been curious about iColoramaAs best I can remember...
I took several shots of the building using Slow Shutter Cam (probably 1/4 second) with vertical camera motion, and then I think I blended them using a stack in Affinity Photo. The filter that changed the colors I'm not certain of, but at a guess it was in iColorama, one of the oddball blend modes like Difference or Exclusion. (I'm pretty sure it was iColorama because almost all the metadata was wiped out, which iC has a habit of doing.)
You can get a similar blending effect in any layering app, but it's a bit trickier as you have to progressively reduce the opacity of layers as you stack them up. Since I already had Affinity Photo, it was easier to do it that way. And iColorama... Quirky barely begins to describe that rabbit hole of an app, but it does some neat stuff.The only app there on my list is Slow Shutter Cam, always been curious about iColorama
