An iPhone photo

After reading Marcella Kligman's blog page regarding the app ColorSplash, I was inspired to have a go at a similar app, ColorCanvas Basic (which is a free app).  ColorCanvas Basic works a little differently than ColorSplash.  You begin with a black and white picture, and paint the color back in.  You can zoom in on the part you want to paint - which is a good thing, because the human finger is just not tiny enough to do this without zooming.  As you paint, the color returns to that spot.  

This is a photo of my adorable sleeping grandson.  (I was holding him and I actually allowed my husband to touch my iPhone so he could take this picture!)  

Now I have to get ColorSplash and try that!  Anything to do with photography is fun, and everything is worth trying!  (Yes, even HDR.)  Why limit yourself?  Thank you, Marcella, for your on-going inspiration!


  1. I'm so glad you were inspired! Lovely composition and good job letting your husband touch your iPhone. :) Good use of ColorSplash too.

  2. Thanks, Marcella - having fun with it!

  3. Thank you for trying ColorCanvas (I am a developer of this app). I really like the fact that iPhone allows us to play with photo on the spot. This is much more easy and fun.


  4. You're welcome - and thank you for the fun app!
