A Retrospective...



Sooo...
I've been experimenting with old photos,
new processing!!!




Playing with desaturation of color and some selective coloring...


A pensive moment...using a processing preset...


Remembering Daisy...RIP...
(Kelly's alive and well!)


Playing with grain...vignette...etc...



Playing with crop, shadows and light...



Going spooky!!!

  3. Good Jobs!
    My favorites are the lotus blossoms series. :)
    And my impression (especially for 4th, 6th and 10th (last one)) is that they seem like taken at the old good monochromatic film era.

    1. Thank you ShiroYuki! The lotus blossoms were taken at least 10 years ago...but I've always loved them and decided to play with the processing! And yes...that vintage look was my goal on those shots!

  5. I can't even pick out which I like best, very clever editing of old photos. Sweet babi Daisy, what a lovely girl. Fantastic cropping on the car.

  6. I like your edits. Most of us (me included) are guilty of over-saturation. Your desat edits here are beautiful. I also really like the grain/vignette edits that give give the photos that cool old-timey look!

    1. I agree Tom...they were so much more interesting looking then rather than the designs today!!!

  14. Really nice photos Kathy! Love the b&w of course. You did something with the color photos, but were conservative. Just right!
    Sometimes, by the time people are done processing they look more like paintings than photos...
