This week on Sepia Saturday,
the prompt picture suggests that we look at faces from the past,
And I took it,
I had presented this photograph to you before,
and here's a cleaned-up version.
This is Ninnie,
and she was sixteen.
This photograph is nearly a century old!!
I wonder what was on her mind back then.
As I said,
this is an edited version done with Photoshop
and now that it looks all pretty,
let's give it again that aged look...
I started this last few months to explore adding textures to my photographs.
I came across some splendid examples by those who are experts at this
and it inspired me to do something similar.
There are quite a few people on Flickr that create and share portfolios of textures
which in turn you can use in your own photographs.
The one above is by one of my favorites,
I resized it for a perfect fit over the cropped version I wanted this time,
and played with it.
Looking at the prompt picture and its rounded corner,
I was compelled to use a second layer.
This one is by
resizing and much modifications to get the look I wanted.
Once everything is blended in,
you get this.
And if I dare say so...
I LIKE IT!!!
This is it for this week,
a modern look on vintage photography.
Is it cheating or reviving the past?!?
Plenty more to see on
