Recently I became aware of the gorgeous sepia tone images by big Island Photographer, CP Merfeld. He has inspired we to do a little sepia toning of my own, which is sending me off in a new direction.
Sepia: 1. Film whose color tends toward brown tones rather than shades of gray, giving the image an old-fashioned and sometimes dreamlike quality. Sepia also refers to the brownish color itself, as in sepia tones.
2. Brown color (as in sepia tones) resembling sepia, a brown pigment derived from the inky secretion of a cuttlefish.
