The other day I was trying to find some tutorials for Photoshop, and I stumbled across one on Pinterest that’s been my inspiration the last few days. Here is a link to the blog with the video tutorial. The video is about ten minutes, and totally worth your time! Up until now I only used the RGB part of curves, but after watching this video I’ve been experimenting with using the Red, Green, and Blue separately as well- in color and black and white.
I’ve also been experimenting with adding some grain to give my photos an old vintage feel. Photography is an art, and while normally I don’t edit my photos a lot, I’m really enjoying playing around with them and creating different looks! I’ll even include a few before/afters for you to see! So… enjoy!
Before and After ^
Look. At. That. Face. I love him!!!
Another before and after! ^
I was trying to go for an eerie/creepy feel with this one. I’m not totally happy with it, but ehhh that’s okay. Want to see the before and after of that one side by side?
Yes this one has four different versions… haha! From left to right: original, color, black and white, black and white with grain.
Now that I’m across the world from my mother and her amazing photography skills, it’s rare that I’m on the other side of a high quality camera but praise the Lord, my husband is a great photo-taker. I adjusted the settings and all so it’s as simple as focusing and snapping the picture, but I guess it’s not as easy as it sounds. Anyway- my husband is good at it! Praise the Lord!
With, and without grain ^
Enjoy your weekend, friends!
