This is my still life image from week 3 of the Be Still photography class I am taking with Kim Klassen. These old tools and work table belonged to my father-in-law. I love the character they developed from the many years of use he gave them. Now that he is gone, creating this image with his personal tools made it more special to me.
To further enhance the image I used several of Kim’s texture overlays including Simple, Warm Grunge, and Manuscript, (her collection is amongst my favorites) . Lastly I gave it a bit of an old film look using levels adjustments in Photoshop.
