Well, my first ever webinar is complete. See the video above. Kind of a rocky start, with audio problems, but lots of good info in this video.
Subtle adjustment of tone and detail are the secret to Black and White Photography.
Join me June 8th to learn the steps behind my process for going from colour images to detailed and rich black and white images.
I will be covering the specific tricks and techniques I use when shooting, the importance of visualizing zones, and then processing that image in post using Lightroom software to get the desired effect.
I will also be briefly showing the use of Nik SilverFX Pro to add that last bit of polish to my images.
Please join me for this absolutely free, no strings attached, no BS workshop.
Who: You, and me, and a few of our friends
What: Free Workshop
Where: Google Hangout/Youtube. Here is the event page for you to participate at the date and time:
When: Sunday, 8 June 2014 @ 1:00pm (Eastern Standard Time)
See you then!
In this episode I show you how to create a grungy high contrast portrait effect in Photoshop CC/CS6. This technique is particularly useful when processing images for rock and roll shoots, or when taking pictures where showing the character and life experience is the aim. It will accentuate wrinkles and other flaws but bring out the character in the image. As always the file created and the files used to create this effect can be found below.

In this brief behind the scenes I will show you some of the secrets behind the piece seen above. I can’t necessarily do a tutorial on it because it wasn’t a recipe achieved by a series of steps, but rather this piece was the product of some experimentation, failed attempts, and then just letting my inner artist loose. At a certain point I can’t say what I did specifically, but upon review of the PSD I wanted to offer a behind the scenes of this piece.
