  2. Love that you were able to capture the muted colors, what kind of post processing did you do?

    • We shoot raw so In Lightroom 4 I toned down the highlights, lightened shadows and pushed the clarity up. Topaz Clarity strong interior was my next step. I then went to Nik Color Efex where I added the boarder and a slight vignette by using the lighten/darken center. A very slight high pass sharpening was my last step.

  4. I’m a fan of this processing too…love the grungy almost-pen-and-ink texture to the letters.

    I hope that’s on a wall somewhere. It’s beautiful … and I want the font!

    Beautiful! Love the texture and the colors – your entire series of wood type photos is fascinating. The printing process was so complex and precise.
