Butterfly Photo Looks Like A Painting

Tiger Swallowtail Butterfly

(One of the things that I do to have fun and stay positive is make photographs. From time to time, I’ll share photos I’ve taken or information about photography for those who share my interest.)

I made this photo of a Tiger Swallowtail Butterfly in an exotic location, my yard.

Here’s a tip:  plant Butterfly Bush.  They attract all kinds of butterflies and have attractive purple flowers that add a splash of color to your butterfly photos.

I edited the photo on my iPad, using the Photogene app.  This effect is called “Posterize.”

Of course, the background was blurred in the original because I selected a short depth of field.  However the Posterize effect makes the background even softer and really makes the subject of the photo, the butterfly, pop.

What do you think?
