Let the Carving Begin…

I love those “newspaper-ie” photos that have a real vintage feel to them. Timeless, grainy, black and white… as if they were torn out to be saved in a manila folder and perused at some later, unknown date.

The boys wanted to remove the pumpkin guts, collect the seeds (which were dried, salted and baked… and eaten) and well, pretty much just get their fingers all icky and full of pumpkin goo. There plan worked.

I wanted t is image that newspaper-ie feel so I ran and action named Milk Chocolate (converted to B&W) added some film grain using NIK’s Color Efex Pro and finally Darken/Lighten Center (also a NIK filter in Efex). Finally boosted the contrast in CS3 …

I like the end result!
