iPhone photo du jour . . .

The coolest teapot was sitting on the table at a Chinese restaurant the other day, all heavy and metal and textured and worn. The table was a brownish-red color and had glare on it, glare that wasn't visible to the eye, but really stood out in a "normal" cellphone photograph.

I opted for an app called Camera Awesome and selected the (yet again) Lone Star effect, which negated the glare, got rid of the strident background color, and emphasized the shape and texture of the teapot.

I then brought the photo into Photoshop, toned down the Lone Star effect, which to me looked too red, added an edge sharpener from Topaz, and came up with this.

Kind of cool, the sort of things one sees while waiting for potstickers to arrive . . .
