Still Workin the ol Timie

This movie requires Flash Player 9

While attempting to make the most of what RC is teaching us, I still worked on my own “nostalgia” look mimicking the old 1920s post cards from Yosemite. With some colors washed out, others pumped up, finding the right combo for each scene is a fun challenge. It first requires finding the right scene such as the outflow from low Yosemite Falls. Then there is the exposure and finally the processing. This image which is a combination of HDR, Color Efex and curves gets pretty close to the look. Still have a ways to go but I have a workflow foundation which is half the battle. Having the energy of RC and the folks makes trying this fun more then a chore. So I’m looking forward to the morning fun!
