Sepia Photography with a Splash of Red

As I mentioned in a prior post, I do a fair amount of custom work for clients. This past week I had another client request something in my Sepia Gallery. She was doing a room over and had this idea with some of my sepia photography. She told me which four prints she was interested in and that she wanted a splash of red in each of them. She picked out the objects she wanted painted and then with some proof reviews and discussions decided on the level of red. I was surprised at the  final result and even more surprised to find out that the room decor was for a bedroom with very modern soft simple lines and color.  When I think of sepia, I think rustic or vintage, but not modern. Apparently it worked as she sent me some photos of a couple of the pictures framed and said it pulled the room together just as she envisioned. So, lesson for the day…I’m not an interior designer, just a photographer and artist.  I have posted two of the four prints below from the originals, to splash of red results, to photo of them framed…..

If you look real close between this one and the next, she also had me remove the cat under the chair.

Interesting how just a little color creates a different look.
