light & dark

Two editing stories for the price of one. Both images taken by @Anglo on her iPhone 3GS.

"With both these images I used the iPhone app Noir which (and I quote the makers here) 

'...lets you transform your photos with beautiful, dramatic lighting and instant results. Peel away the color to a cinematic black-and-white, apply a lovely tint, and then light up your subject. Touch and pinch the brightness Vignette and spin the Contrast and Exposure dials for white hot thrills and shadow.'

"In this first one, I used the vignette to create a diagonal vignette, to change the natural side light into a more diagonal top light. I made the rest of the image as dark as possible whilst keeping the story that it was a tunnel of trees, with the light at the end of the tunnel also there on the original image.

"In this second one, I set the vignette to be tall and slim, circling the child and the path behind her. I used the app to make what was inside the vignette slightly darker, whilst bleaching the rest of the image to the barest details."
