This is the first shot I submitted after I got my new camera . I wanted to create a composition about "composition" . I used a tripod and machine's self-timer function to keep camera stable . I used a desk lamp as lightsource . Fingers are mine .
I cropped a square from the left side of the original photo (I didn't changed it's original height) . I used channel mixer's monochrome setting with %40R %30G and %30B . I adjusted levels and used vignette tool to make corners darker . Lastly I selected "sepia" from "photo filter" menu .
