This is a very simple method to making photographs grungy, but its also a good technique to have handy in your mind for any post-processing you might do in the future!

Just looking back at some photographs from my trip to Amsterdam, Netherlands – I found this shot of an amazing organ in the Westerkerk Church, he lighting is very cool and green, but I warmed it up in GIMP :P!

Looking back on some older photographs from Toulouse, France – I found these shots of a discrete church on the streets by the river Garonne. They aren’t great photos but, I do like the lighting and grungy feeling of them :)

Up in country Victoria a couple weeks back – just great to see all the gum trees ‘furry’ with leaves as they rejuvenate since the February ’09 Bushfires. I had the Canon 5D Mark II with me so I was testing all the features and the full frame is really sweet, was about a metre away from this cottage chimney and was able to take a snap with minimal lens distortion! I thought black and white suited well, what do you think – original just below?

Experimenting with paper sheets and light :P These photographs are purely sheets of paper inverted in the GIMP and coloured – taken with various lighting angles.
