a few different effects

Posted by carlotta on Monday June 4th, 2012 at 10:27am

I don’t usually play around with all the multitude of settings available out there to make photos look old or different. It is generally not the look I am after in my photography. But I was thinking about the shoot from the other day of the So Last Century stringband and wondered if a different effect might work for these photos. I didn’t want to do a straight sepia ageing look on them but thought it might be interesting to age or change them slightly, in keeping with the look of the photos. I think a danger with these effects is that if you are not clear about what you want to achieve before you start, you can get stuck in the endless possibilities. I also think what works depends as much on the individual shot as it does on the subject matter.  Here are three different effects on three different shots. Do you think they work?
