Title: Not so big city, not so bright lights.
I’ve always been pretty interested in skyscrapers and large cityscapes, but living in AK I don’t get to see them often. Sometimes on a rainy day, DTA (Downtown Anchorage) gives off a little bit of those big city vibes.
Start out in Snapseed, increase the brightness(65), the contrast(35), and the saturation(10). Then decrease the ambiance(65), and the white balance(2). Then I sharpen(10) and add some structure(5). Rotate left and save. Next app is PicFX. Apply the enhance filter at 50% strength. Save. Then back to Snapseed to change the orientation back to portrait. Save. Then I open it in VSCO Cam, add grain(1), vignette(1), and filter 4. Save. Lastly I open Square Ready for the crop. 🐨⛄
Hello everybody! For those of you who haven’t Instamet me yet, my name’s Jovell. I’m a 20.07 year old guy living in Anchorage, Alaska. When I first started using Instagram, almost a year ago, I was all about finding dope photos from talented artists, and I wanted nothing to do with the social aspect of it. I didn’t want to chat, follow, or like. Just look. About two months ago (after a brief break from Instagram), something snapped and I realized how great mobile photography is. I wanted to push myself further, but I didn’t want to wash out the beauty of my state with filters and crazy edits. If you’ve been with my feed for a while, you know I break this promise to myself every now and then, haha, but it’s okay. End of the day, IG is about sharing fun moments, arguing about Pokémon, and meeting new people. I’m having a ton of fun doing that, and the fact that people actually dig my photos is just a bonus.
