The capability of renewing the old using Photoshop is wonderful thing, but so is being able to age the new! Inspired by the romance of old family photos, I decided to age a photo I took of my wife at a friend's wedding and place it in an old green photo mat I scanned in. When I scanned the mat, I turned the photo it contained over to reveal the white, aged back side for use as a digital canvas. I won't explain the whole process, but it is enough to say that pulling off the look of an old photo lies in the ability to pick apart what makes a photo look old, besides being black and white. It must be contrasty, have a slight off focus veniette, contain the look of years of wear and tear, and so on. The end result was quite fun!
