Throwback: Vintage Effects

Hey folks. Yet another (very short) throwback post. I planned to shoot some sunsets this week but the sky didn't open up for me--cloudy, grey skies all week long :(

I was feeling creative so I decided to edit some of my old photos. This shoot was done in 2011 for my family friends (meant as an engagement shoot). It was just a purely "just-for-fun" thing. I reprocessed the photos to have a vintage look to them, so if  that's not your cup of tea, you probably won't like this post.
Vintage isn't usually my style either. All shots were taken with the Canon 50mm f/1.8 II.

  All editing was done on Lightroom 4. If you like vintage-style photos, you might want to check out Jenny Sun Photography, because her work is simply awesome. 

I hope you enjoy the photos. There aren't many of them though. 


Ok, so this one wasn't part of the shoot, but I found it in my archives. Might as well include it here >.<
 I added some grain in these photos to get the full film effect. I know a lot of film photographers frown upon editing digital photographs to look like film. Why not just shoot film instead? Because I don't have a film camera and processing them is quite expensive. I would like to learn someday though. 
 This location is one of my favourites. 
Trying a slightly different tone on this one.
Playing around with vignetting and darker tones. 

That's it. I told you it was super short. What do you think? 
Do you like this kind of effect on photos? Feedback is always appreciated :)
Hopefully the next blog post will have new content in it. I need to get rid of the Winter Blues and get out there and shoot!
