Son...
Posted By: clarenceclose, 01-25-2007, 10:11 PM

Done as old photo.
Obvious Photoshopped picture of my son at his wedding.
Done with natural light coming in the window of a library.
I wanted it to look like an old time photo.
C&C appreciated.

It works well Clarence. The sepia tone certainly helps. The creases and the folding of the photo adds great nostalgia feeling to it. The bronze metal kind of blurr down below adds great sentiment to the shot.

This is a great PP work from you again.

How did you get the crinkled effect? I think it looks real, but the edges are to sharp, maybe they should have something done to them, then it would be perfect.

Well done Clarence, looks like an 11 x 14 picture that I had done when I was in Vietnam. I need to have it restored, right now it looks just like yours but my crinkles are real. And so are my rinkles...LoL

Nice Picture!

Nice picture, well laid out. I am a little biased, though. Retired SCPO.

Nice nice.

Thank you all for your kind comments.

Would like to put him under the lense more, especially in uniform but don't get to see him very often now.

Excellent, Clarence. This definately looks like a photo you could have pulled out of an old album or chest. The Sepia and crinkles are perfect. Helps that you used the lighting perfectly.

Thank you for your appreciation of my talents.
You want to be very careful what you wish for as it may come true.
I self taught Photoshop as I had the time because my wife went through 3 back surgeries in one year, so I was home a lot with her.
Tried to put my time to best use by learning something fun.
I wish you much better circumstances for your learning.

Nice work Clarence! You nailed the old photo effect almost perfectly. Thanks for sharing. Here's hoping you get your wish to photograph your son more.
