Getting the most from your disc part II
I was going to talk more about filters. There are so many great ones that it makes it hard to choose. The top one here is called "old" and it allows photos to be aged digitally. The color is sepia and their are subtle water spots along the edge. I love this dress with this filter...very classic. Below is one called "water". It looks like the bride and groom are standing beside a lake with their reflections in the water. You can click on these to get a better look.
This one is the ever-popular black and white with color accents. I've added a second effect on the second picture "crayon edges" in a vignette...look carefully at the flowers and leaves above the couple. The next image I've added a "crayon edge" vignette...look carefully at the flowers and leaves around the couple:
And the ever-popular black and white with color accent filter:
So you can see, the possibilities are pretty wide. You can take a fairly simple portrait and make it into something very special for display. When you receive your disc you will find these filters applied to some of the images.
