Day 266 – Monkeygram – combining all the instagram filters

Have you ever wondered what a photo might look like if you applied all the filters in Instragram to it, one on top of another (excluding black and whites)? I took one of my monkey moments and found out…

Original

It produces a wide rage of effect. Veering from the subtle, to pop art, to abstract! Because all the effects were applied to the same photo it is easy to take it one step further- open two (or more) of the images in Photoshop or GIMP and combine them together using blending modes and the opacity slider. For the image below I opened the original photo and the +sutro edit on different layers in GIMP, set the blend mode to darken and dropped the opacity to around 70%. Endless fun!

    Hey winegums.

    Nice idea with this experiment. Nice to know what kind of effects we are able to get mixing instagram filters.
    To be honest, I like the original, and the Amaro versions most.

    Best regards
    Dawid.

      Thanks! I think you might be right about the original and amaro versions 🙂 There are some interesting abstracts and pop arts though. Keep your eye out for my next post – I have made a couple of collages as well as an animates GIF.
