It’s all about learning, in my opinion. You can’t sit still. There is so much this world can offer, I just can’t imagine ever just letting it pass by.
I have this great magazine that I subscribe to called PhotoPlus. I love it! It gives lots of great reviews, tips, photo criticisms, and all sorts of wonderful hints. It also comes with a computer disc with tutorials on various techniques to make you more proficient in your editing or composition or what have you. I received a disc the other month that explained antiquing a modern photograph. I’ve been wanting to watch the tutorial and try it myself. I love how old photos look and I was keen on learning how to get that look in my photos.
So, this afternoon, I grabbed a photo I took of the Pennsylvania State Capital and tried it. Took me a little while to get the whole technique, but I think my first attempt at this form of editing turned out pretty darn good. What do you think? I’ll be trying this on a few other photos as well, so check in to see what else I can make look old.
