If we get more than one picture, we’ll throw together a post on our blog, and maybe if we get enough entries we’ll put together some kind of prize or something. I have no idea if this is going to work, but I’m sure hoping so! ~AR
Nicely done! Very close to the Impressionist Lens feature in our new iPhone app!
Last week, I stopped by the NY Botanical Gardens in the Bronx to check out their Monet Garden exhibit. I thought I would start off my photo set with an attempt at some paint style filtering in Photoshop. I started off with Artistic -> Pallete Knife, then used Pixelate -> Pointilize and finally Brush Strokes -> Spatter. After that, I brought the saturation up a bit.
No matter where you are, you can now enjoy Monet’s gardens with the Monet’s Garden free app tour, created by the New York Botanical Garden in collaboration with the Metropolitan Museum. The tour is part of the NYBG in Bloom app.
Discover beautiful photos and paintings, learn more about the connections between Monet’s art and his gardens, and if you’re feeling inspired, use the app’s “Impressionist Lens” feature to capture your own art.
How’d we get that pic? We sent our digital media specialists 40-feet into the air in one of our bucket trucks! We’ll do anything for a great shot! ~AR
