Quick Tip: Old Romance

Today I thought I’d share how I got to this image:

I was thinking of calling this a tutorial but that seem obnoxious. I am in no way qualified to teach you how to edit your photos. So instead, I’ll call this a quick tip on how to get that rosy/hazy effect. This photo was used for WAGW Online’s Old Romance Collection. I’m sure there are so many ways to do this but here is how I did it. Photos are a little fuzzy and I’m not sure why. The final results are above, click on it to see it larger on Flickr. Click below to get the step by step.

What always helps me is to start with the final image in my mind and work from there. If you noticed, I gave no values or numbers for anything I used while working on this photo. That’s because every photo is different and if I just gave you random numbers to input the effect would be different as well.

Would love to know what you think and if you have any tips or suggestions on how to do it better!

  1. Thanks for such simple instructions, I always tend to think it takes more editing than this to create the look. I love the soft lighting in your work.
