VINTAGE AND OTHER IMAGES You don’t need to go far to find imagery that sparks the imagination. If rummaging through bins of old photos is not to your liking, just log onto the Internet. There is a plethora of choices. If you want to turn your image into a silk screen or a metal etching, look for images that are high in contrast or use photo-imaging software to bump up the contrast levels.
