Try Something New Tuesdays

Try Something New Tuesdays

Welcome to Try Something New Tuesday, a place for you to step out of your photography comfort zone and try something new! Use a different mode on your camera, a photo editing technique you’ve always wanted to try, a new texture you found, or even something as simple as using a different angle while shooting. Anything goes, as long as it’s something new you’ve done this week. “Failures” are welcome! After all, we’re trying something new!

Since I finally figured out how to install Python Plug-ins in Gimp I've been searching for cool plug-ins that I can play with.  I found once called Photochrom that looked pretty cool so I played around with it last night.  Here's what I got:
This is the original photo.  I found this old bathtub just sitting outside like that kinda interesting but the photo I took doesn't do it any justice as to how interesting it actually was.

This is the default Photochrom setting.  I liked it but the orange is a little too orange on the bottom.

Ok, so I should have written down my settings.  I'm pretty sure I played with both orange and blue shades in this one.  I don't think I added the retro look but I can't remember.

This one is my favorite.  I think I played with just shades of blue for this one and I think I added the B/W dodging option.  Can't remember if I did retro too or not.

There you have it!  My attempt at the Photochrom Plug-in for Gimp.  I think this week was a success!

What are you waiting for?  Grab your camera or photo editing software, try something new, and link up!  MckLinky closes on Thursday at midnight.
