1920 Model T Carved Back Hearse

A photographic study of a 1920 Model T Carved Back Hearse.

1920 Model T Carved Back Hearse.

Audrey and I used to live above a garage that stored and restored vintage automobiles.  I never had any interest in photographing any of them until this somewhat macabre 1920 Model T Carved Back Hearse arrived on a flat bed.  When I saw it, I just knew I had to photograph it and that started my  Classic Autos series.  I am pleased to announce this image along with various visual reproductions of it is now available at Fine Art America.  Just in time for Christmas; a 30% discount on all my imagery at Fine Art America. All you have to do is type in the discount code when asked: RRTVYP. read more

One of the issues of this car image was a perceivable banding in black of the Chevy hood.  Luckily, in Photoshop, you can prevent this banding by going to the Filter menu and choosing “Add Noise.”  When the pop up window appears; choose a amount between 2% and 3%, choose Gaussian for Distribution, and turn on the Monochromatic check box.  Click OK and a tiny amount of noise will be applied to eliminate the banding. read more
