Photo Recipe - Adding Age to a Photo

July 01, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

I have always loved old barns and now enjoy exploring and trying to photograph some of the interesting places you see along the road where no one lives anymore. I took a trip out west this spring with some friends and after going to Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone National Park, we decided to take a day and look around the countryside for interesting finds. 

This barn was behind an abandoned house. The barn was in much better shape than the house, but still definitely shows some signs of neglect. I loved the old tractor in the field of dandelions.

Sometimes when you take a photo, you can tell that it would look great with a texture. To me, this is one of those photos....

I am a huge fan of the Love That Shot's Olde World Collection. I normally spend a bit of time trying different veils and textures to see which gives the photo the feel I'm looking for. This to me shows how the barn felt to me... like an old photo. I almost always start by using a veil from the Vintage Veils collection. I started this photo with the Blood Orange veil. I then went to the Olde World Collection and added Calais at 40% opacity, Chevaliers at 46% opacity and Camembert at 60% opacity.
