A Pictorialist Approach

I still experiment from time to time with the style of photography popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries often referred to as pictorialism. These photos had a softness to them, while still managing to preserve the details. It's frustratingly hard to reproduce with software. Just using a blur or soft filter doesn't work without much tweaking. I don't often get exactly what I'm striving for, but it's fun experimenting.

  1. I love how you experiment.
    These photos remind me of many vintage postcards I have.
    Someday I sure would love to visit Savannah.
