Of all photographic special techniques, sepia photography is one of the most long lasting, and we think, one of the coolest. Even though it’s been around for a long time, the effect can still be dramatic and breathtaking.
While sepia used to take skill in the darkroom, these days, you can replicate the effect with Photoshop or Gimp software. That means anyone with a camera and computer has access to these techniques. See the end of the post for some tips on making your own sepia photography images.
We’re sure you will agree that sepia is still one of the most atmospheric development techniques that can be applied to a good photograph. And that is why we put together this piece on why sepia photography still kicks ass – we hope you enjoy it.
As always, if you think you have a better sepia photograph or know of somebody who does, please link to it in the comments!
