Adding Age to a Photoshoot – Sepia Tone

To create that “old” or “vintage” look in photography I use the sepia tone. It immediately brings to mind an aged photograph. I like to use it with subject matter that would have or could have been seen in early photography. I thought that these covered bridges in Oregon were a perfect fit for that look. To age the prints even more, I used a rough texture adding that element of an old photo.

All three of these bridges are located in Southern Oregon just off Interstate 5 as it winds its way north from California heading into the  Williamette Valley.

    It’s always a treat to see covered bridges, and I’m pleasantly surprised that you found three in OR. I like the sepia and texture additions you made, too, Kirt.

      Jet…just north of Grants Pass along the 5 there is a series of them…my wife and I came across one of them by accident on one of our trips up to Seattle. Googled Oregon covered bridges and hit the ones closest to the freeway.
