Re: Craggy Face

i think i have more trouble with the shots that are very flat and closely cropped to the face.

the ones that really dont give any info on light direction and stuff. then when you go to open it up and play with highlights and shadows, and add contour, thats where things can get tricky.

sometimes i think too much on images, and that throws me off a bit.

i know how light and shadow work with one another, maybe the hard part is knowing where to apply it and when you're gping overboard.

Re: Craggy Face

here's another with the highlights a bit more realistic, just using masks.

Re: Craggy Face

All nice ones you guys.
I was so impressed with the B&W ones I thought I'd have a try myself, but slightly different.

Thanks
The only plugin used (this time) was Unplugged "Lomo" (a very old plugin but works okay), for the Vingnette effect, everything else was PS.

Thanks Danny, this was a real easy picture to work with, there are so many options that would work well.
