Canon A620 PowerShot camera has a setting called "Sepia". I took these photos last evening in Ding Darling NWR. They look like something taken out of an ancient scrapbook, showing the way it was in the "olde tymes", when the mangroves stretched on forever and were full of birds.
Here's how to find the "sepia" setting on the Canon Powershot. Turn the camera past the "Auto" mode and onto one of the creative modes such as AV (aperture priority). Push the Function Set button and then scroll down thru the menu on the left until you get to the fourth choice. It will say "Effect Off" with other choices appearing with it, such as vivid, neutral, low sharpening, sepia, and black and white. Scroll right to the "sepia" choice, push the function set button to lock it in, then take your photo. If you have another type of digital point and shoot you may have that setting. You may, gulp, have to read your manual to find it, or, do as I did, play with your cameras settings to see what you can find. If you are using a digital SLR camera, you can obtain a sepia look to your digital photo by using Adobe Photoshop Elements or Photoshop CS. Have Fun.
