No male of the early 1900s would have been caught dead wearing that red hat.
Scruff up and lengthen that beard
Let your hair down and not wash it for at least one week.
Get those clothes a tathered, dirty and faded-look.
Good starting points Jon! Then photo-capture the backdrop in a more traditional manner. Like slightly hazy/blurry in black & white. Then add a hunting dog by your side in that pic.
Your gun is a beauty! All it seems to need is a peep sight.
Wait - on 2nd thought, your ML needs a more dragged thru the mountains look. Make it look worn, weathered and dirty also. Carve-in a few scratches....

Feel silly? ,,huh? I look like that most of the time! Except my beard is grayer and my hair is longer and grayer. My capote is older and my rifle a bit more lived with.
Speaking of rifles,,,that's a real nice one your holding.
And your right, it does grow on you. Gives you a chance to forget the cell phone world we live in and kinda "feel" what it was like.
While I don't fault or belittle anyone who chooses to dress the part, its not my cup of tea. I thoroughly love the firearms of the period, however the clothing no, I have absolutely no interest in that part of it.
