iPhone Photography Tutorial – ‘Eternal Mystery Series’ By NaProsvet

Today I wanted to create a grand tutorial on one of my recent series’ that I have titled  “Eternal Mystery”.
 These three final images are included within it and of course, they all are complex and made up of several images, so I have detailed the processes below and show you how to create them.

Links to all the apps used and mentioned in this post are at the end of this article.


Step 1



First things first I will detail the creation of the first (base) image.
I shot the original image with the Pudding Cam app.

Step 2



Next, I ran it through the Decim8 using FOLD4RAP5 effect.

Step 3



I then put it through the Juxtaposer. So, to get rid of any excess. I should mention that I merged the basic image with my “clean” paper texture.


Step 4



I then added a new top image and then loaded the previously saved stamp (Skull). Quite often you can meet “HIM” in my works 😉

Step 5



Finally, I played with filters, using the Iris app.

Step 6



And at this point I think that I’m somewhat happy with what I’ve created 😉

2) So, we now go to the creation of the second image. 
Do you remember, that I told you – Shoot more? Well, I turn to my archives…This is what I need!

Step 7



Once again I’m going to use Decim8! (FOLD4RAP5 effect).  Yes, sure,  I’m a big fan of the geometry! =)

Step 8



I then head back into Juxtaposer and add a new top image, Or rather, I load the previously saved stamp ( Skull2). By the way, this is another of my favorite main characters (Skull 2).

Step 9



I am a mad scientist, so I clone them one by one and add them in sequence. Actually, I would like to see an “otherworldly triumvirate”.

Step 10



Finally, I add some texture and revert to gloomy colors, using the Iris app.

Step 11



Thats all!

3) Just for fun, I complicate the task, by adding more geometry and freakish mood 😉

My lovely “poster”-images… =)

With clean (almost white) image, I create the graphic image, using “addLib” app

Step 12



Not bad…. BUT! I was talking about complication!

So, I ran it through the 3D Photo

Step 13



Well, it’s better, but I really want to add some texture and make all the colors intense, so I go to the Pixlromatic app.

Step 14



Next, I go back into Juxtaposer and add some familiar characters. I think it is too bright, so I make all colors more muted, using the Blender app.(merging with colors texture).

Step 15



Further I add some graphic arrows, using the Blender app once again.


Final Image



That’s all!  As always, ”Let your imagination work for you!”
