SUPPORT MY PHOTOGRAPHY AND LIKE MY FACEBOOK FANPAGE PLEASE! QUICK PHOTOSHOP TUTORIAL: VINTAGE STYLE
So many people have asked me for some tips on creating a classy vintage-styled photograph. I've put together a small tutorial on the main tips, but there are MANY more. I'll touch on these now, as I couldn't fit them in the tutorial above.
Create a classic lighting to your vintage photo. Click on Filter > Render > Lighting Effects. Choose Omni or Spotlight, and change the directions to create what you want.
Image > Adjustments > Photo Filter can be a great tool to use when you really want to speed up the process. It can make your picture have a soft warm light, or a cold harsh blue light to it.
Filter > Texture > Grain is interesting to play with, but not always necessary. It'll make a photo look like it's from the 1800s though (if it's black and white). A bad quality look can still look amazing.
Brightness/Contrast, and Curves can help your vintage colours stand out, so don't forget to play with them too.
Duplicate your image, and click in the layers window and choose different types of Light. I always use Soft Light, and you can do the same with a "New Layer" and a pretty colour on top of your picture. Don't forget about the opacity though, mine's set to 20% usually.
