I finally had the time (and more importantly, the patience) to attempt the “tutorial” this blog featured. Actually, this tutorial was really no help at all, and it is only by the patience of my man that this photo came to fruition.
Here’s the step-by-step to achieve it if you’d like to attempt. First use your regular software to make 2 copies of the photo, one in black and white, one in sepia.
Open up the 2 copies in photoshop. (if you’re on a mac) While on the sepia picture, use the rectangle tool to select the entire picture. Click apple-c to copy the sepia. Apple-v to paste it onto the black & white copy. This will make it a new layer. Alter to opacity (on the far right menu above the thumbnails of the layers) to 50%. This will minimize the color of the sepia. The finished project is above! I think this is the perfect blend of the black & white and the sepia. Enjoy playing with your own!
