Vintage Tints

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!!!

Andie Smith is a Dallas-based freelance photographer, specializing in editorial and fine art photography. Andie’s favorite artistic expression has always been photography. As a child, she fell in love with the art while vacationing with her family. Even now, when she looks at those photos, she is instantly transported back in time to experience those moments again – the sights, the sounds, the smells, the people. It is Andie’s hope that her photography evokes a similar response in all her clients. She realized photography was more than just a hobby while studying graphic design at The Art Institute – Dallas. Andie knew she had the skills to succeed as a photographer, so she jetted off to southern Florida where she studied photography at The Art Institute – Fort Lauderdale.
