I love these retro styled coke bottles. Naturally, I had to give it a retro look. I used one of Matt Kloskowski’s presets from his site Lightroom Killer Tips called Matt’s Surreal Edgy Effect. It doesn’t really work for human subjects, but looked really cool with these bottles. This photo is one of the few I took of inanimate subjects over the weekend. I really should get out of my comfort zone and shoot a greater variety of subjects. Perhaps some architecture for next time?
