Creating images out of negative space isn't easy in photography, but using multiple iPhone photography apps in combination can make the process easier. This opens up new areas of potential creativity, though it's difficult to imagine in advance what sorts of effects can be achieved through a chain of multiple iPhone photo apps, even if you know the apps really well.

In this case, the original photograph was of a thick cross atop a tombstone in a cemetery. I first put it through the LoMob iPhone photography app, using the Vintage Instant Reframed filter. This filter creates the effect of a very old instant camera, complete with texture photo paper.

That produced an image that is already good and which I retain in my "gallery" of images edited on the iPhone. I later decided to run this edited image through the Textify photography app, using the word "Cross" for creating the new image. Above is the final result.

I wouldn't have achieved the same look if I had run the original photo through Textify. What was needed for the above result was an image with more contrast and with the cross itself being much darker. I think that I might prefer to use a different word than "Cross" when running the edited image through Textify, though. "Cross" is perhaps a bit too literal for an image that could potentially have a non-literal impact on viewers.
