This is a very powerful portrait. How did you do it?

Great shot.

Hi folks, thanks for the comments. Marcus is a nice chap and a fellow photographer, as well as being the editor of a local magazine. I took the shot in my favourite pub, which is quite dark inside. The only light was coming from the window behind him and the door to the right of the frame (also slightly behind the subject), which lit his face. I used a wide aperture and very shallow DOF. I converted it to tritone in PS, and then back to RGB. I then adjusted the curves on the red channel to bring out some detail on his face. I also used the healing brush on his face and the burn tool to darken bits of reflection. Finally, I cloned out the scratches which seem to feature on all of my x-300 shots. Smile

I think Marcus is biased. Nah!


I don't know stewart, you won't give up your technique secrets, I've been experimenting with all the tools in ps and the results have all been disastrous. Check out my convertable. How about a hint as to which tool to bloody well start with? LOL. Thanks. Smile Amanda

Thanks Amanda! If you read all of my replies to this photo, you can see (just below Harvey's comment) exactly what I did to this particular photo!


The first thing I would recommend anyone to play with in PS is the curves tool. Try messing around with it as much as you can! Smile Smile
