I've taken these pictures with standard Kodak B&W 400 and then scanned them in on a nasty scanner. Levels were adjusted to compensate for the dodgy scanner, and then one was saved. Now this other one was then converted to duo colour and some red/brown tints selected. The dark tone had it's curves adjusted to lighten the background, this also brought out scanner noise which I feel adds to the image a bit. On top of that I then added a very slight noise jsut to give it a more uniform old feel not just thoes scanner lines in the shadows. Now the question is this. Does the extra sepia tone add a bit to the oldfeel i'm trying to achieve. The turntable is actually very new and modern so I'm trying to photograph something and give it a bit of a retro feel. I get the feeling bringing out the noise is a bit much, but without it it just looks a bit clean and the sepia tone gets wasted. Also as far as contrast goes should the shaddows be brought out like that?
