Photo Challenge

Retro

Thanks to Ollie for suggesting this week’s Challenge.

Take a photo that looks like it was taken years ago. I’ve tried this before and it was quite fun, but I did end up using quite a bit of post-processing.

According to our usual rules, you are allowed to edit your pictures after shooting, and this week is no exception! There will be a healthy dose of bonus points to anyone who shoots their entry on film :D

Please send your entries in by noon on Tuesday 7th May. Have fun with this one!

Challenge Admin, I enjoy taking photos mostly of landscapes and architecture - but I will try anything! I mostly shoot film and I spend a lot of time in my darkroom trying to get the perfect print. I'm a sysadmin for a living and I also enjoy cycling and music technology.

  1. Ooh – I’d forgotten that one. How exciting! Hint – Google ‘old photos’ for style tips (and get lost in the ones you find!).

  2. enjoyed putting this together, delving through the loft and reliving my youth.
