You don’t need a fancy phone.

This image was shot on my super old phone.  And by super old, I mean nearly 10 years ago old. I did this to show that while fancy phones are nice, you can still have fun with any device that takes a picture.

Your mission is to shoot your own fruit ninja image.  I may even get around to taking another photo with my fancy phone and sharing it with you.


You don’t know the power of the darkside!

Editing note: google splash with black background to find a file.  Change the blending mode of the layer (I think it was overlay or screen). Mask out any parts that look excessive.
The spot healing brush was used to remove the fruit sticks.
From shooting to editing this took around 4 minutes to create.
