Way blown - But I kind of like it!

Hi all,

Was playing with the SB-600 off camera this morning. Most exposures were fine, and then, without adjusting anything, I got this way overdone image.

Was just about to delete it when I thought I would have a look at it in Photoshop.

I quite like it now!

Couple of questions...

1. What do you think?

2. How do I do it again (on purpose this time!)

Thanks,

Paul

Paul, if I were going to guess, I would say that you increased the contrast causing the highlights to blow completely. Then perhaps a little saturation increase. Hard to say without seeing the original.

I really like this look...you should have it printed on metallic paper. I just got back from this really big photography trade show...and they were showing pics like this on metallic paper...it was really cool looking.

Looks like you did it with Hues & Saturation.

That sound great - Do they do silver and gold?

btw, when I said 'what I did' I meant camera and flash settings - I didn't really need to do anything with CS3!

Thanks for your time,

Paul

Oh ok ...

It was kind of a black with some silver in it (Paper). The name of the company at the trade show was Fullcolor.com
