Vintage hands, altered photograph

An old jewelry holder turns eerily gothic under Topaz Labs “simplify” filter. I love how the filter kept the touch of dainty rose on the flower, while converting the rest into black and grey tones. “Simplify” removes details and smooths the pixels. Another good look for this photo was the “gritty” i used on the display i showed last week, the flapperish girl with the sculpted hairstyle. A program of plug ins (plus the standard filters that come with Photoshop Elements) can change your photos in amazing ways. Don’t be afraid to take a favorite photo and apply a bunch of filters to it. This photograph was taken at ARTpool Gallery, as usual, the wonderful vignettes are made possible by the magnificent styling of Marina Williams.
