Moving onto the editing. After cropping the photo in close to the face using Adobe Lightroom CC and then opening the photo into Adobe Photoshop CC as a smart object (always try to edit nondestructively), I opened ON1 Photo Raw 2019 as a plugin to add the effect I want. First filter I used was Textures and I used a Twilight texture that I downloaded from ON1 website. You can find textures from the ON1 website in which some are free to ON1 users. Next, I applied a Vintage filter using the Red-Yellow setting and chose the Oatmeal color. Then I applied a Tone Enhancer to boost contrast and a Black & White filter using the Coffee color. Next, I used a Photo Filter with a Tobacco color and a Classic LUTs filter. Then another Textures filter was added using this time Metal Grunge Vignette. And since one can never have too many textures, I added another Textures filter applying a Rice Paper Dark texture. Next, a tilt-shift Lens Blur filter was applied and masked the blur from the face. Then a Film Type 552 Border was added and the border was masked from the top and bottom of the face. A Dynamic Contrast filter was then added to boost the contrast some more. Too help give it the color I was going for, I applied a Split Tone filter and selected the Oats color to finish it off. Whew!
