I took this photo a while ago, messed with photoshop:
I like it a lot. I love the contrast... both in light/dark and the amount of dark vs. his slight smile. You might even want to push the light contrast a little more.
edit: I take that back... leave the contrast where it is.
IMO.......brilliant shot, and excellent post processing.
I think it's excellent and I dig your processing. Well done.
Thanks guys, the post processing is just a blank layer, white and black brushes in soft light mode. This is the first photo of my project (finally I have some ideas!!!)
That is striking. Nice job. at first the blue highlight on his glasses bothered me a bit but today I see it as a nice detail.
wow i love that! x 10!
Smashing, a great portrait.
Great portrait.....................now if it had only been of Johnny Depp..........
I like, but is that blue light? I am kind of confused
I love the processing. Care to share more details on your processing technique used here? =]
I'm not sure why it's blue like that, I shot this photo with only one SB600 mounted on my D70 (pointed almost straight up, indoor)
Here's what I did:
-Apply local contrast by using USM, i set the percentage to very low (below 5%) and the radius to high, about 70 pixel for a 6MPs image.
-Create a blank layer on top of the image, set it to Soft Light blend mode.
Then on that blank layer:
-Use black brush to darken parts of the image, especially the shadow on the face, under the eyes.
-Use white brush to lighten the highlights.
-Add a hue/saturation layer on top of all, decrease the saturation a bit
And lastly I did some surgery to his face using the Liquify tool.
I include the original here (what a dull boring shot )
Thanks for sharing! I'm going to give it a shot this evening.
