Lightroom is the digital photographer’s answer to the film version of a “dark room”. It is a software made by Adobe that enables you to post-process your photography in an amazing array of possibilities.
I have been experimenting with its filters. Lightroom offers you a handful of antique styles, ranging from simple black and white to genuine antique lighting. These filters enable you can take a modern digital photograph and convert it to some of its ancestral camera looks. I have found them especially useful for architectural photography, such as the famous pyramids featured above.
Take an antiqued photo and add grains to it, such as the image below, and you get an even more atmospheric look. There is something mysterious about how black and white enhances the message of a photo by decreasing its color.
I recommend this style especially for websites that present travel destinations and ancient architecture. The antique look gives the object the timeless feeling they deserve.
