Making of another "1923 Signature Art" Print

Here is a before and after series of a great shot Jen captured while we were following the bride and groom on the way to their reception from Newport, RI. The entire wedding had a vintage vibe and I thought this shot with the car and that old bridge should be no exception. The first photo is the actual one straight from the camera photographed photographed through the windshield of my truck. As you can see it’s dirty as heck and it also blurs the photo a bit.

So there you have it. Finish off the photo with a distressed texture effect, and old camera viewfinder border, and wash out all the color.
Just as it might have been in 1945 with that car. 🙂

I swear—I thought I was pretty handy in Photoshop, but I need a lesson from you in this stuff!

Amazing as always! Your ability to see something beautiful in something far from it is astounding.
