Badge for one-to-three photo processing challenge.

One-to-Three Photo Processing Challenge

One-to-three is a monthly photo processing challenge on my other web site, I’d love to have you join in: The challenge is simple: take one photo and get creative with it by processing it three different ways. Then share the results, with a link in the comments to this month’s post. I’ll do a start up post on the first of each month, including a round up of entries from the preceding month, so we can all share in the creativity and fun.

Here’s my April 2022 contribution:

I love this little bird we saw walking the dogs last weekend. It’s not a dramatic photo but the bird charmed me. It didn’t seem afraid of the dogs so I got closer than I often am able to and could use a wide aperture to get the feathers in good focus and have some bokeh in the background. Truth be told, even though I like the variations fine, I prefer my original.

How to get the looks above:

I hung around in the GIMP for this month’s experiments.

GIMP’s Waterpixels filter is in the artistic group: Filters>Artistic>Waterpixels.

G’mic is a plug in for the GIMP (and other programs I believe) with over 500 filters from basic editing to advanced and a myriad of artistic effects as well. Both the Paint with brush and Quadtree variations filters are in G’mic’s Artistic group. Filters>G’MIC Qt Then select Artistic and the filters.

Challenge Background

Since having to isolate due to the pandemic, last spring, I’ve been doing a lot of experimentation with photo processing and I thought it might be fun to share some of the things I’ve discovered and see what others are doing.

I’m hosting the challenge on the other site to try and keep my skills.
