I believe I have said a few times how I’ve enjoyed the challenges from weliveinaflat and firebonnet so far. Every week they would come up with interesting themes. Some were my usual approaches of using mobile’s photo apps. However, some weren’t. Like this time that they’ve chosen Mirroring apps for this week’s challenge.
If last week’s sketching apps was a rare choice for me, this week isn’t my favourite one at all. As far as I’ve remembered, I might have used this type of effect once. I kind of disliked this effect because I thought the outcome was too unnatural. So I could say that this week’s challenge really put me out of my comfort zone. However, I think it was a good opportunity for me to explore an unfamiliar territory of photography effect.
I first used Camera 360 to create mirroring picture, however I prefer the output of Insta Photo Mirror as I could adjust position of original and mirrored images. The result was as the below image which was a big grinning cat.
This type of effect turns out to be funnier than I used to think. Thank you to weliveinaflat and firebonnet for amusing challenges. I’ve realised that we could encourage our creativity by stepping out of our self-made boundary. It’s refreshing.
