Sepia Photos Are Nostalgic
Sepia photos are nostalgic because these remind us of the past. I used to enjoy looking through old picture albums, and the sepia photographs always conjured up an exciting past I am a bit more attracted to than today's overly digital world. However, the convenience of digital photography does allow for the option of transforming regular digital photographs into extraordinary sepia works of art. You can even change the settings on your camera to take pictures exclusively in the sepia mode, which can quite fun. Lately, I am have been enjoying turning my color digital photographs into sepia images, which often brings out certain details that would fade into the background if left in the original form. If you ever want experiment with photos, just use free websites such as Flickr and Picmonkey to edit photos into sepia works of art.
When I took pictures of the snow in the San Bernardino Mountains these were beautiful in color of course, but the sepia effect almost reminds me of the old photographs I saw of Lake Arrowhead from the 1920s and 1930's.
When I start playing around with the photo editing software I cannot help, but turn many of my favorite photos into sepia works of art. Using photo editing software to transform my photographs can definitely be faster than the process of sketching, or at least for slow drawers like me anyway!
So as I edit my photos, I continued to transform more and more of these into sepia images. It is really quite fun once you get started, and you could even make some beautiful framed images doing this.
The most amazing images to transform into sepia by far are landscapes, and those are the ones I probably enjoy creating the most.
Now that I have discovered the sepia feature in photo editing software I am hooked, and I will continue to enjoy creating sepia inspired landscape photos. I hope you also enjoy playing around with the sepia effects when you get a chance to try out photo editing software on your own pictures.
