Episode 11 – High Contrast Portrait Photoshop Effect Tutorial

Final Product:

High Contrast Portrait Effect

Show Notes:

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.

Files Used:

The RAW file (Canon .CR2) and .XMP sidecar file with corrections can be found here:
