Filter Me Wonderful: Photo Editing Apps, Effects and Composition

Have you ever experimented with photo editing apps?

Instagram, Snapseed and Photo Editor Pro are just some of the countless photo editing apps available for editing, altering or improving the look and feel of any of your photos. I recently had a lot of fun trying out some new apps and playing around with filters and effects. It was also very interesting to see how they supported my photos’ composition techniques of:

Diagonals, Fill the Frame, Leading Lines, Patterns and Repetition and Rule of Thirds

Scroll down to see some of my original photos and how I chose to alter them!
