Antiquing the Coast
Most of you know that I have been trying some new things with my processing. I firmly believe that if you want to stand apart from other photographers, that you have to have something, or be doing something that makes you stand apart. For me, that is about processing, taking great images and trying to make them into something unique. Antiquing images, that is something new for me, and something that I am enjoying doing right now.
I have picked images that I have taken around Point Lonsdale and Barwon Heads.
I am not going to lie and say that I think they are all fantastic, but I like the effect and how they turn an image into something a little different. I have been spending heaps and heaps of time on the internet looking at vintage photos and studying them. I need to do more though.
Textures are so important to this kind of work, but you can’t just use any old texture, some work, some don’t. You can put a texture on and think it is good, and then you discover that it looks horrible, so you delete it and then try another one. There is a lot of trial and error.
I have more to show you and will put them all into a gallery for you.
