Picture This! -- Our Next Assignment
“Art” In-Camera Filters
Increasingly digital cameras are offering preset “art” filters that allow you to make interpretive images right “out of the box.” In addition, many cameras now also allow you to process “straight” shots in camera in different picture styles. These art filters are like Scene modes with a good deal of trickery built in. Our next assignment is to seek out and shoot with, or make copies in camera of images using these built-in special effects. No Photoshop post, please!
This shot was made using the Sketch filter in the Samsung HZ35W; exposure was f/5.6 at 1⁄30 sec at ISO 200.
