Neodigital Art: editing in sepia

1 soldiers in sepia  firing

I went to a Boer War battle re-enactment on Sunday which gave me some ideal pictures for artistic edits using sepia.

1 art soldier in sepia - fisheye

The background is blurred in this one to make the most of the subject.

1 artistic cannon fire

I used the watercolour pencil option for this picture. It makes it interesting.

1 Manor House in sepia

The battle was in the grounds of the Manor House. This is a unusual shot of the Manor House.

1 paymaster in sepia

This is the ‘paymaster’ in his tent. I like this picture, I talked to him for a while. He had Bradshaw’s Railway Guide.

1 sepia edit

I like this one too. The white of the tent made it much better

What do you think of today’s pictures? There are some originals from Sunday on A Zillion Ideas today too.

  1. These are so great, Mike! Not only are the photographs captivating, your edits really bring an historic feel to the settings. My favourite one is the Manor House. The perspective of the house, the willow tree on the side and the architecture of the house all combine to make a powerful picture.

    Thanks for sharing your artistry with us, Mike!

    • Hi Carolyn,

      I see so much more now, when I’m looking for shots. I had these pictures in mind as I was taking the photos. The staff at the Manor House museum seemed to like them too. I think I got a lot more photos than they did. I had my camera on continuous shoot and was taking bout 5 at a time capturing the plumes of smoke from the guns! I hope to do something similar with narrowboats in the summer. I would like some ‘old fashioned’ sepia pictures of members of our local history group too. Because the weather is so unreliable I have a speedlight (flash) being delivered today, which might help with those pictures. We need hats too! 🙂
