Photo Art Color Effects

Another thing I found is the Photo Art Color Effects by Fun Factory. It lets you colorize certain portions of the photo with the tools available. It reminds me of some apps available way back when the first Iphone was making mondo gnarly waves in techno buzz.

The tools are a bit hard to activate, but you get tons of ideas from this app.

More Fun with the Fx and LightBox Cam

This past few days, I've been toying around again and again with my FX and Lightbox camera. They seem to add a different atmosphere to the landscape photos I seem to be fond of.

Android Cam Crazy!!!

I recently purchased an Android phone with a 2MP camera... I know, not the kind of specs I usually go for but beggars can't be choosy (yeah, thats right...I'm a beggar).

Looking at the Samsung Android market, I found a lot of cool photo editors and effects...most of them are embedded on the phone camera so you have the option of using the software as a way to capture the image.

There's the classic Pixlr-o-matic by Autodesk, which is well know not only to web heads but also to Iphone users also. Its easy to use interface with variety of effects can give a beginner a golden touch when taking photos.

The Lightbox app is also like Pixlr but with additional effects. The 'Lomo' and 'HDR' settings are a joy to use.

For a varied look into the different types of camera, there is the FxCamera which lets you choose the type of camera, from ordinary, to Toy Cam, to Polaroids, and much more. With a nifty 'Symmetrical Camera" which lets you play with the same photo twice.

There's still lot of apps I have to go through, and I hope to find a good app out there that would help even a beginner like me create better visuals for their hobby.

A Party on Manila Bay

Our UAP chapter (UAP-CBD) held its Christmas Party last December 3. What made this party different is we had it on a yacht, held while we were cruising the calm waters of Manila Bay. It was a happy and memorable experience.

Just in time to witness the weekend fireworks show at Mall of Asia from a totally different standpoint.

Thanks to my officemate, Flo, for lending her Nikon 3100 for the occassion.
