Scenes from the State Fair

Post-processing, Uncategorized | August 12, 2013 | By

Ah…the State Fair…the animals, the exhibits, the FOOD.  Deep fried butter anyone?

In between bites during a brief excursion to this year’s fair, I was able to collect a few images along the midway. Unfortunately, the skies were essentially a seamless gray leading to rather boring backdrops.  In order to add a little interest, each of the images below was post-processed with the Perfect Effects Suite from OnOne Software to create a vintage look.  I also layered in some bokeh to add to the overall effect.  Stay tuned for a screencast tutorial on creating this look.
