I’ve had some questions about the effect used on the “<%popup(by_a_window_smaller.jpg|197|300|By A Window)%>” picture. I emailed the photographer (my wife’s uncle) and here’s what he had to say:
In response to the question about the technique used on the ‘by_a_window” picture, I made use of some nice window light from the right, and added a sunsoft filter, which is no longer made as far as I know. It’s a warming/softening filter, and does a beautiful job with this type of picture.
I hope that answers some questions.
