My first photographic experiment with sepia toning took place not too long ago at the Sutro Baths near Ocean beach here in San Francisco. That trial and the photos created proved to me filtering a photo through a sepia tone is a great way to lend a shot something dramatic, moody, and as Ramaink commented, nostalgic.
For a second try, I took some photos of downtown’s high rises, giving them the same filtering as the earlier shots. I went for more shadows on the lower parts of the buildings and more light up top to let the clouds and coming sunlight through.
One of the things I enjoy with using filtering (in software form) is the chance of using a little or a lot depending on what you want as an end result.
more to come in the near future!
