Week Photography Challenge - Antiques

Week Photography Challenge – Antiques

0Comments

This week it’s time to dig out all your old stuff, or get out and look for some antiques. Things that are aged and beautiful – look for old buildings, your old shoes, rotting wood of an old window, antique cars, clocks, books, etc., yes even people. Remember these old things have great value, especially our senior citizens – so photograph them with the respect they deserve.

If you want to add a few tricks to your images of antiques try these techniques:

Split toning to make it look like an antique photo.

Antique cars of Havana.

Even try your hand at some light painting as was done here to “turn on” the car’s headlights.

An old typewriter makes a great subject. Simplify your composition for maximum impact.

Weekly Photography Challenge – Antiques

Simply upload your shot into the comment field (look for the little camera icon in the Disqus comments section) and they’ll get embedded for us all to see or if you’d prefer, upload them to your favorite photo-sharing site and leave the link to them. Show me your best images in this week’s challenge. Sometimes it takes a while for an image to appear so be patient and try not to post the same image twice.

You can also share your images in the dPS Facebook group as the challenge is posted there each week as well.
