Vintage is the new thing..wait…vintage and new…oxymoron. Lets say Vintage is all the rage right now. I am seeing it from fashion to photography. It is really easy to achive a cool vintage tine to you images.
Open an image, copy layer…and then burn the outside part of the image so the eye focuses on the subject. I do this at 50% opacity on the new layer so I can lower the opacity even more. You can also dodge parts of your image to stand out more on this layer.
Add a b&w or sepia layer. I used a custom b&w layer with a tint (Hue 35%, Saturation 25%)
Play with the opacity so some color comes through, mine is set at 50%
Create a new layer (I add a layer mask incase I want to “erase” parts) and fill it with any color you heart desires. I tried a purple. Then changed the layer mode to the “soft light” and lowered the opacity to 75%
It was okay….but not the feel I wanted…so I tried a brick red…
I liked… a lot!!!
