After being under anesthesia, cut open and then propped back up, taking shots with my cell phone was, I suppose, an act of defiance or an announcement to myself that I survived. When I looked at them later, I was not terribly excited about what I had done. However, they did give me a couple of different types of photos to play with using (abusing) the “content aware fill.” As I said to FR, I found it a hoot. I can see some potential for it along with some of the filters for making some off the wall images. As far as I can tell it is designed for filling in on panoramas that are stitched together or after straightening an image.
I took these two shots on Feb 2nd that I intended to turn into a vertical panorama:
Here is the Photoshop stitching:
Then I had the white border “content aware filled” to obtain:
Finally, I lightened the photo a bit so the content can actually be examined:
It was in doing something similar that I stumbled on the off the wall effect I called ephemeral (the one I think is a hoot and may have what I call artistic potential. We’ll see).
Warmest regards, Theo
