These ones have an old style analogue filter. I like using low-tech effects A LOT, because they are simple, easy, and effective. Even tho' I'm really good at Photoshop, I don't have a lot of time to spend on EVERY FRAME to do an effect, when I could just do it analog instead. Often times THE BEST effects are the most simple low-tech tricks.
At the same time, I also like a mixture of "realness" and prefer to keep a flaw in the photos to look intentionally less than perfect, like the proverbial "Persian Flaw"... which seems sort of "Zen" to me.
Altho' I HATE the ugly Harry Potter scar on my face, I tend to keep it untouched on my photos of myself. Why? Because in real life I have an ugly scar on my face. I also have hideous sun damage on my forehead which gives it a crepe paper texture. I hate it. HATE IT. But I often leave don't even bother to apply makeup to it because it can look even worse in the photo.... It's actually a simple procedure to fix the skin damage on my face, however, I don't have the funds to currently do so. I also suffer from psoriasis.
Honestly, if you gave me enough time I could make anyone look good if I photographed them. I know several tricks, and techniques WITHOUT any Photoshop touch-ups. I just understand how to use my technology, and equipment. I can ALSO draw your portrait with pastel or charcoal and you will look even better in my drawing than you do in the photo, but ALSO still look JUST LIKE YOU.
Like I said, I'm an artist. I like beautiful things, but I also like thoughtfulness, and perspective.
Like I mentioned, these were actually just test frames...
