the challenge this week was to experiment with the actual photo set up and than experiment with the gradient map tool or hue/sat adjustments in pse to get a vintage feel.
i set up two foam boards on my kitchen table with afternoon light shining through the window.
than set up the shot using red wrapped heart chocolates at the base of a red vase.
the original shot, to say the least, was quite red.
using kim klassen's revolution texture and experimenting with the gradient map tool (awesome technique), i got the overall vintage feel i set out to achieve.
