Sepia Scenes #68

When I took photos of some of the gargoyles at Hempstead House in the Sands Point Preserve on Long Island little did I realize that the originals (one is just below) would appear as if they were original sepia shots.

Adding a sepia tone in the usual way (Adobe Photoshop 7) gave me the photo below.

In this case it seems as if the addition of the sepia tone made the photo lose some clarity. Do you agree? I wonder why? Anybody know?

Jarome and Uncle Jerome

At Thanksgiving I bought young Jarome an elf's hat which he wore all day. The process of Selective Sepia is a little detailed but well worth it. Try it!

You guys know what to do now, right?

Sepia Scenes #66

These red flowers are lovely in the original but I thought giving them a slightly pink, gold sepia tone would give them a wonderful effect. I brightened the photo a bit before I added the sepia effect using Hue/Saturation in Adobe.

Next week I thought we'd take some time to show you how to colorize a sepia photo. I'm looking forward to it.

Our thoughts go out to the Haitian people and the devastating earthquake that hit their country yesterday. Help is on the way according to President Obama.

Sepia Scenes #65

This is a piece of art that I saw in an Italian restaurant on New Year's Day. I thought it would look great with a sepia tone, so here it is.

See the original photo below:

It's also very beautiful.
