This image is a good example of my workflow. Basically it’s make a black and white, then add color and texture.
For this image, I started with 2018 image. In Tintype I made a black and white with 30% blur. In Blender, I combined this tintype version with the original with a 35% color blend mode. Then in Snapseed, I opened up shadows 100%. In PhotoCopier, I used Bosch preset with color changed to 42. This resulted in a dark image, so in Snapseed, I lightened with shadows 60 and brightness 65. I finished in Snapseed changing temperature 19 and frame 9.
For twenty years I worked in downtown Los Angeles. But I never took the time to visit the statue “Corporate Head, 1990,” by Terry Allen. The statue, at 725 S. Figueroa St., was just too long a walk from Times Mirror Square. Yesterday I made the trek.
Upon arrival, I found a scooter next to the statue. The businessman appeared to be upset with the proliferation of scooters around downtown Los Angeles.

For this image I started with a black and white Hipstamatic photo taken at Railfest in Fillmore. I added the color with Distressed FX app Rupl filter. I finished the image in Snapseed.
