I have attempted to make a photo appear that it was taken about the turn of the century. The scratches and sepia are on purpose. I deal in old photos so this comes naturally for me. I am not a black and white photographer naturally though. It is tough for me. I think in color so for me to even attempt to show something like this makes me very nervous. It will be a rare event. I love work that others do in black and white but do not consider myself at all accomplished in the method. Thanks for allowing me in…if you do.
