After reading the last issue of the Mobiography e-zine I decided to look at a workflow using my new iPhone and the IColorama app.
I’m very keen on macro photography and wanted to combine the RAW images shot the iPhone with Icolorama, I also wanted to use a full mobile workflow. So I downloaded the Icolorama app onto my iPad Pro and using the iPhoto app I checked the RAW image files for levels etc.
Initially I used Affinity Photo and Photoshop for iPad to adjust the images, but then realised I could also import them directly into Icolorama and adjust them there.
So in my first attempt I used Affinity Photo iPad to adjust the levels and added a high pass filter overlay, to sharpen the image, and created a mask between layers, but again I found I could do this in Icolorama (N.B. Although there is no Histogram to check levels).
So eventually dropped this from the workflow as I found I could do more and more in the app.
To import directly into the app I selected the landscape image icon to RHS this automatically opens the iPhoto library and allows you to access your images.
By selecting the brush mask you then get a tool bar with adjustments and selections to choose from. I found the AI button the best way to create the mask.
I then started to create the background knowing the subject was masked off.
