Writing with Light

The Photo Studio

Project 52 Entry #35

Back to Black Creek Pioneer Village for today’s post. Imagine my surprise and excitement when I spotted a Photography Studio as I was exploring this quaint turn of the century village. I headed over there before you could say “Cheese” but alas it wasn’t what I thought it was. It was a modern set-up were visitors can put on turn of the century clothes and have their portrait taken holding a gun or bottle of whiskey.

They did have a little display of some antique cameras (which by the way I love and collect). I felt given the subject matter I would give these both a late 19th century / early 20th century feel to them in post processing. Both images were processed using Topaz Black & White Effects.

  2. Great shots. Love the treatment. I, too, got an old Nikon ftn (sentimental) and a Compur box camera at a camera show for under $200. Alas, it’s because no one shoots film anymore.

    You’ve come away with a great find, Edith. Awesome choice going with this treatment. They look wonderful. I really like that old tripod and camera in the 2nd image.

  11. It’s always fun to experience some of that feeling from that old time photography era. The use of Topaz Black & White Effects really enhanced the pictures. Good work.

  12. I can appreciate your disappointment with finding out the true nature of the studio. However, good on you for not giving up because you have managed to find a couple of nice shots to rescue the moment. The processing really works great on these.
