parallel ll perspectives – By Catherine Restivo and JQ Gaines – Seventh Edition


We are delighted to publish the seventh edition of the wonderful parallel ll perspectives column of Catherine Restivo and JQ Gaines. In this article, they have used an image taken by JQ Gaines in New York City to create two incredibly different images.

Parallel ll perspectives is all about using one image and seeing how it can be apped in different ways to create two completely diverse overall images. We have created two separate screen shows of both of their images along with their own individual tutorial audio to demonstrate this entirely. We really hope you enjoy this wonderful column, many thanks to Catherine and JQ for their excellent work.

We have also included still images of each shot too with apps used and links to the app store incase you feel inspired to try some yourself.
