There are a million photo apps out there. From Instagram to Snapchat, each tries to outdo the other, and the smart phone user can get bogged down by so many of them. While I do use Instagram frequently (you can follow me there as well, for more photos) I'm always on the lookout for something new and good. While Prisma has been out for a while now, I haven't really gone with the trend and started immediately using it, thinking that it was one of those many photo apps that I can't be bothered with. After all, for my photography I really only need Adobe Photoshop which is a powerful tool. So if an app comes along it better bring something new.
Prisma really does bring with itself something new. It turns your photos into paintings. You simply import your image into the app and apply one of the many filters that are available. From art deco to classic oil paintings, you will find almost any style inside. For this post I decided to turn some of my landscapes and portraits into paintings using the Prisma app. For some I chose a couple of styles to show you.
1. Harbor and Bay of Old Town Dubrovnik
2. Lone Landscape in the Foothills of Mountain Velez
3. Secluded Bay in Zablace
4. Portrait of myself on the Fortress of St. Nikola
5. Spring of the Buna river in Blagaj
6. Portrait of my sister Jasmina
7. Outer walls of the Old Town of Dubrovnik
8. Sunset over the hills surrounding Mostar
9.Old Fortress of King Herceg Stjepan
I hope these conversions were inspirational and that you will also try to convert your images into paintings with the Prisma app. I don't have anything to do with them, I just recently discovered it and started playing with my images inside of it. While the app will never outlive true life paintings in the digital world it's quite a nice and welcome escape.
