Word Play


This week I decided to play around with adding vintage letters and postcards as a form of texture to two of my images. The image above is an abandoned farmhouse in Pennsylvania photographed using my Fuji X-Pro1.  I used several textures by 2 lil Owls and then brought in a great french postcard that a purchased in a pack from French Kiss Textures.

The image below I photographed at Breezy Point in Gateway National Park again using my Fuji X-Pro1. It is a composite since I added a more dramatic sky to this image. I used textures by 2 Lil Owls including the old French letter.  I did some final processing in OnOne which I recently upgraded to their newer pack of filters.  Both images are processed in CaptureOne which I always use for my raw conversion, Photoshop CC where I do all my editing, Nik Color Efex 4 which is my go to editor.

I wanted this very nostalgic, vintage feel to these images and using the old postcards and letters really works well.
