Pictures, apps and social media….

Fun
Interesting
Productive
Informative
Social?!
Waste of time
Confusing

All of the above.
Absolutely.

It got me thinking as I played with another photo app to make cool cartoon pictures (damn you Metan!) which then brought this rather funny Nickelback parody to mind. Is this what we’ve been reduced to??

As you all on know, I like to take pictures. I don’t alter them, no photoshopping happens here. If I like a picture, it’s because it’s good as I took it. Any one can take a crap picture and play around and make it good. If I do feel the need to alter something – or use filters and apps – it’s for a bit of fun, to change things around a it. Not because that’s how I roll.
Back to this new app. Toon camera. Very cool.
I’ve had a play around and found a few pics that work well. I was going to show a before and after but I don’t think I will. And thanks to Hook who said he wanted more pictures, I will indulge and go nuts.
Lets start with this lot. I found that some pictures lent themselves better to being cartooned hat others. Boats I particular.

  1. All I do is crop mine, too.

  2. I completely agree with you on the editing of photos, I never do anything other than crop mine. Now I have the ipad I am more likely to use one of the apps to take a picture purely to play with but I don’t really see them as a proper piece of photography!
    This Toon Camera app though, it is fun to find something mundane that completely changes once it is cartoonified. Those last two boats are great! I will have to look out for some water shots now after seeing them. 😀
