Love Letter

There are days when you’re more happy to see the mail than others. This is one of those days.

    “Sealed with kisses”. So cute and I love doing this with my letters to my best friends. I wonder what the mailman thought.

  2. I want a love letter like this! So did your wife get upset? ;)

  3. I would love to receive a letter like this in the mail. Instead, I get letters from friends that are sealed with tape because they hate licking the envelopes. What was the color format you used?

      Good question, Uri.

      The shot was taken in natural light, f/5.0, 1/50 second, ISO 1000. I took it with the Tamron 28-75 f/2.8 lens.

      Processing was mostly exposure related. Blacks +21, Recovery +25, Exposure +0.57, Clarity +42, Contrast +41, Brightness +71, and Saturation -71. If you have Adobe Lightroom, that should make sense. For anyone else, I amped both the dark aspects and the lighter aspects of the photo, then reduced the color saturation substantially to age the photo.

      Prior to that, it didn’t have the romantic feel that I wanted, but by aging it, I got what I was looking for.
