...again no after shot - so anything that I product will not satisfy you, as you have proven with everyone who as tried to help you. unless you can provide both the before and after to match, you will not be satisfied with anything I or anyone else does. It would be a waste of time.
His style is 'organic' and different for each picture, without something to aim for you can always so it isnt right.
As you have done every time in the past you will say it is close but it is not right.

Hey Gang...

Alright.. Let's try and solve this little dilema.. First, thanks to all for your wonderful words. I try to get here to help out whenever I can. There are so many talented retouchers that I know out there, if only they came by to help out, too.... let's see if I can persuade some of them along

Anyway, someone send me a link to an image the like off of Dragan's site and I'll collect my crew together to see how we can achieve it... deal?

I am not quite sure what you mean. What after shot? And what Before shot?
There is no-one (pro) doing this work that is going to give me a before shot.. So I am not quite sure where you are going with this.
I am not that bad of a guy...
So I might Love it! Do not be Negative.
What exactly do you want. An after shot from one of the sites..There is no way I can get the Before shot for Obviuos reasons.
If you want I can send you a small picture of mine before and after. Which ever one you want. Just tell me where to send it and what size.
I am Honest. So I said Pixel's shot was way to green. But that does not mean he is Bad...
Just let me know,
I do however have another request for you. Will post it soon, I lost the page soem where...
Did you check out the Loretta luxe page.?
What do you think of her stuff?
Better yet, you have any examples of stuff you like I can check out.
Or Any stuff you do. Could not find you webpage anywhere.
Thanks,
Sn@@k

You liked pixels first attempt until he told you how he did it :p
vaguely looked at that girls site on the way out to work this morning, didnt get a chance to look at it properly.
Just in the process of putting together a gallery from 1 of those images you provided - but as I said, without knowing exactly where you want it to end up its impossible to provide the perfect reproduction that you're looking for.

Cool Conrad, That would be great.
I understand that Nancy might want a Before but for obviuos reason these guys do not post there before. I do know on Dragan site
He does have a before of an Old man (looks like SantaClaus) Smoking a pipe.
But I think it is way to small.

I have notced another thing and not sure if you may agree. He is definetly tricking the backgrounds also. Replacing them or shooting on a tripod then focusing on background and mering them in photoshop. I know he used a 10 or 20d now and there is no way you are going to get that DOF from that camera...;-)
His lighting is also not that special (nice) but not special. Probably one softbox slightly above his subject. Could even be an on camera flash with diffuser.
Thanks Conrad,
Sn@@k

Nancy--> Here it is
Straight from Dragan's site
The old B&W version:
http://andrzejdragan.com/foto/foto21.jpg
And the Retouched:
http://andrzejdragan.com/foto/foto23.jpg

Thanks,
Now you have the older from him and his retouch. So you can compare it to his directly.
Sn@@k
PS. This is even less exxaggerated than others work but is on the same track.
Other Rap sites are putting a little more sheeen and more saturated color to the color parts, But that I can figure out....

Thats not an original - its just an older version.

Just some roughs that are close to his style - but every single one of his images is slightly different, as will any image that tries to emulate him.

http://hazelryan.co.uk/Site2/forsnook/forsnook.psd - warning its 8mb

As I said, they're roughs, if I was the photographer or had a specific mood in mind I would spend much longer on a single image. If there is something you think could be improved to be more like how you want then let me know the number and what you want and I could refine it.
