Offering An Old Key To An Old Heart by 

Hello. 27th April and number 117 in the ongoing 365 image mega series.

Taken late tonight (about 10.30pm) at home.

Simple shot of my hand holding an old rusty key. Levels adjustment and high pass filter layer at five pixels, black and white conversion, three texture layers blended using overlay and erased to blend in further. Contrast adjusted slightly in curves.

Canon EOS 20D / Canon USM 28mm-105mm lens.

I’ve been taking photographs since 1997 and I still love it. After a brief dislike of photomanipulation I now use Photoshop extensively on a majority of my work. People are my favourite subject and I’m always on the look out for new models, so drop me a line if you’re interested! :)

    Judging by the state of the key it must have been a while ago that you were 21. LOL

    Great image Jamie.


  • Yes, David, it was…thanks for pointing that out! :)
