About this picture

 
"A faded photo, but still a vivid memory..."



Continuing my obsession with trying to recreate "Old" looking photos. This time the 50's...Probably still way off...Ah well was fun anyway.

CC as always welcome!

Mah the idea was more to capture the look of a shot taken with that eras film...I didn't want to overdo it with the aging too much or I was afraid I'd lose some of those quirky colors you got back then.

Admittedly I still have a long way to go when capturing that look and feel so probably be an ongoing thing with me. :p

Nice angle Ash! I think that if you want to re-create "old" looking photos you need to desaturate the color way more and make it a little less crisp. The skin tone is great though. I really love the reds here, so strong, they definitely give the figure and "old" look. Great job! Hope to see more.

Yea I went back and forth on the grain...I had it real strong at one point, but then I pussed out...I was afraid I was distorting the shot too much so I toned it down a bit, maybe too much.

It's hard to break the mindset of wanting pictures to look crisp and clear so purposefully mucking em up is harder then I thought haha...

Nice photo! Zai hasn't posted yet so I thought I'd steal the comment to be an ass and give some C&C.

50's feel! I can see you introduced some film grain, maybe make it stronger? I like the composition, it feels candid-ish; like a photo of grandma that grandpa had cheekily taken while messing around with this camera. Oh, faded photo = desaturated? Ah but it could be highlighting vivid memory. Ah, I'm so confused now... Anyways, good job!

@keychain Yea I actually did try that very thing, but yea I didn't like the result like you said it looked too modern. Have to keep trying to get that "authentic" old look.

Haha you and the eye whites...I never even notice it.

@Fab Eh I think it was a slow day is all.

@Ventusse Heh interesting though...I guess she does kinda look like Ai doesn't she?

@Lilbelulla Glad you like it!

Lovely mood in this shot ^^! If there's any C&C I would have, I guess you could try boosting the shadows of the blue channel with a curves adjustment but that would give it more of a 70s feel lol Also, eye whites :P
