    This is a subset of the many photos I shot during our week long annual family trip to Camp Unistar in northern Minnesota.

    I tried out some new vintage filters in Lightroom, trying to capture the timelessness of camp. I'd love to hear your feedback - does it look appropriate / well done, overcooked or heavy handed?

    Thanks!

    Nice pictures! Looks like you lot had a great fun -- it shows through in the pics.

    I for one am not averse to using vintage-look presets, but there are some here where for me it didn't go so well, like the second picture. Maybe because the image went too warm?

    But there are others where the filter was spot on, including the first, the girl on the swing, boy with the fishing pole, and the sort of hippie girl. :)

    It *does* look like you all had a great time!

    I really like the boy with the fishing pole, but thought the girl with the banjo and the last photo looked too over the top. Sometimes I think for a set like this it would be better to stick with a consistent "look" (?)

    Thanks, that's good feedback. I agree that it was probably over the top on some of them. You know how it goes, you get a new hammer and suddenly everything looks like a nail! :)

    I agree...the warmth in the second is just a little to overpowering.


    This is a good point. While I often apply different treatment to shots in a single set, I do however try to keep the majority to a single PP theme.







    I think the PP in these 2 below is really nice (especially the second) and I would probably apply something like this to the rest of the set throwing in the odd b&w for something different. That is juts personal taste of course. Both are really nice shots in their own right, my faves in a very nice set.

    sidenote: .man your boys hair is looong now, really cool hairdo...I was never allowed crazy long hair as a kid, such a tragedy considering i loved heavy metal back in the day !
