Orton Technique……

You can almost immediately tell Orton modified images. They have a dreamy look to them, with soft blurs, hard edges and are well saturated. Michael Orton developed this technique in slide film. Here is a excellent page describing how you can make your own Orton modified images. There is a entire flickr group dedicated to this technique as well. The video below shows a modified 3 layer Orton technique using Photoshop and layers. More discussion about the video by the author can be found through this flickr discussion thread.

  1. Thank you for posting this. Technology has really taken photography to new heights.

  2. Hi Many,

    I would appreciat it if you could remove the embedded Youtube video and replace it with a link to the Flickr group discussion thread. There is a lot on that thread that helps add to the learing from the video.
