Vintage Black and White Photo Effect with Photo Veils - Photo recipe

We have an old box filled with faded black and white photographs from my husbands grandparents. Every now and then we look at the photos together with his sisters ... I enjoy hearing their childhood memories, as well as admiring the time's warm patina on the photos.
I wanted to create a vintage-like black and white photo effect using Photo Veil Collections from Love That Shot.
In order to let the light fall on the tulips alone, I chose a dark backdrop - actually a blanket of cashmere and alpaca - that would not reflect light. The texture of the blanket would create fine a contrast to texture of the tulip petals.
My focus was on the lowest tulip, so I used spot metering. The daylight light fell on the tulips from the window to the left, creating natural highlights and shadows.
Photo recipe:
  • I converted the photo to black and white in Lightroom, using the B&W Contrast High-present. Therafter I increased slightly the highlights and shadows.
  • I added the following 4 photo veils:

Photo veils create subtle and seamless layers, enabling you to achieve the effect, that suits to your style of photography. 

... Until next time,

Living Water

On the last day, the biggest day of the festival,
 Jesus stood again and spoke aloud.

Jesus: If any of you is thirsty, come to Me and drink.
 If you believe in Me, the Hebrew Scriptures say that
rivers of living water will flow from within you.

Tea Cup Exchange

Stephanie from The Enchanting Rose hosts a Tea Cup Exchange-party. The party is about having you send a tea cup to someone - and receiving one in return from someone else.
Drinking tea is something that brings people together ... And so does Stephenie's The Cup Exchanging Party! There is always space for another tea cup in the cupboard, ain't there?
:  :  :
My Tea Cup Exchange-friend, whom I have a tea cup, is Lady Linda. As I visited Linda's beautiful blog, I was thinking of what kind of a tea cup she would like. I found something Fair Trade and handcrafted to Linda... Actually a cup similar to the cup, I received from a dear friend, who introduced the African Touch- Fair Trade boutique to me. I did send along some of my favorite White Temple Tea.
The African Touch / Perch Tea Room
And what did I receive from Sarah, the author and designer in Blessings Art Ideas  ... See the photo above! As her big package arrived, I felt almost like it was my birthday with the many pretty wrapped gifts!
I unpacked a lovely white tea cup and a saucer, with beautiful light lilac - grey floral texture, together with Green tean with lemon. Moreover, Sarah had crafted two beautiful cards and she send me also a hairclip ... Such a lovely surprise!
Thank you Stephanie for arranging the Tea Cup Exchange-party - thank you Sarah for these wonderful gifts!
My evening tea tastes delicious as I drink it from this pretty tea set, and Sarah's cards encourage me each morning!

Visit Stephanie's blog to take a look at the different tea cups
that has been exchanged!
