I took this photo and played with it in Photoshop, and then used Lightroom presets.
This is the original, opened and re-sized in Photoshop, which suggested a more old fashioned look would suit the model, who is a little “Bette Davies”-
My manual sepia isn’t quite as convincing as the Lightroom preset further down-
..but the sixties look is OK-
..and then a black and white forties Hollywood look, which is my favourite-
This is the original, opened in Lightroom,
Next I tried to find a sixties colour film preset, which comes across as faded, unsaturated-
Then I applied a sepia toned preset –
..and finally a Lightroom black and white preset-
No doubt that Lightroom presets with further exposure, highlight and shadow tweaking, provides the better results, and much more quickly than I can do it. The modified presets can also be saved for re-use.
I avoided using the filter gallery in Photoshop which is too gimmicky for my taste.
