Here’s my entry for Leanne & Laura’s Monochrome Madness Challenge this week.
You can see my Adobe Lightroom settings & Adobe Photoshop layers in this gallery:
After I’m finished with the settings in Lightroom, I export the file and open it in Photoshop. This is my Photoshop workflow (see the Photoshop layers picture for reference):
- In Lightroom I used a preset called Antique Light. I tweaked the settings to what you see in the “Lightroom settings” image in the gallery and exported the image.
- Open the exported photo in Photoshop.
- In Photoshop: The layer Background Copy is the one I work on. The layer named Background is the original, as it looked when I exported it from Lightroom.
- On the background copy I used a low opacity brush and added some dodge & burn (in the corners, around the edges, on the trees, boats and their reflections).
- The Old book cover layer is set to darken with an opacity of 50%
- The 4 tape layers are set to multiply at 100% opacity
- The grain & noise layer: I used the Paint Bucket tool to fill the layer with black. Set the layer opacity to 28% and then used filter – noise – add noise, ticked off monochromatic with uniform distribution at 16,5%
- Then I added my watermark, file info and saved as a jpeg.
