Words of Whiskey

Words of Whiskey, originally uploaded by margotwood.

Vintage whiskey bottle + awesome type = my kind of subject matter. This was shot at the Burlington flea market back in July in Cincinnati, Oh.

A note to photogs out there--take some time and go through your entire archive of photos. You might see a photo you've overlooked but now looks interesting. That's what I did with this photo. I haven't taken many photographs in New York lately so I went through my archive and saw this one I took months ago that I never considered retouching before. After messing around with it for an hour or so, I was very pleased with the results.

Post Process: Curves, desaturation, increased blur (around the edges to make the type pop), increased exposure (to make it less contrast-y) and finally a little light was added to the George Dickel sticker on the right bottle.
