This particular idea came quite late on in the project yet it was one of the easiest ideas to create. Whilst playing around with the idea of the apple and magnifying glass I came to a bit of a brick wall so decided to combine both elements to make the apple magnifying glass. All that was needed was a apple stalk on top but to make sure others understood what it was meant to be I decided to add a little green leaf on top too.
Image editing for this idea was the hardest part as I wanted the middle of the magnifying glass to represent glass as good as possible with making it look like I’d just edited a piece of glass into it. After messing around for a while I came across the blur tool which was very subtle yet worked nicely and didn’t overpower the rest of the image.
