You guys have heard me rave about FilterCam by MechanizedLife before, but I'm giving you all the best reason in the world to buy one now or pull yours out! There's a contest!!
What do you have to do? Take pictures using FilterCam! I snapped this one earlier tonight using the Keyhole filter and a windlight setting. The only post-processing I did was crop it and put a thin black frame around it.
Using FilterCam allows you to take some great photos without the need for a lot of Photoshop/Gimp work afterwards. I love love love mine!
Oh, the contest? Well, check out all the details! I snagged it from the gorgeous Gabby's blog.
