Thank you for your interests in this thread. The point of this is to not steal a style, or to emulate it in a way to call it our own. The point is to better our photographic and especially our photoshop skills with a task of trying to understand a true professional.
Here is the work in question: www.russellrutherford.com
A couple of quick rules before we begin...
1. If you are critique their work, go somewhere else, this is an instruction, sharing of tutorial posting
2. If you just want to give your opinion about how they just use photographic techniques, go somewhere else.
3. If you are going to be rude and arrogant and think you are better than everyone else because you are a cool guy/girl and you are online 40000 miles away, go find a noose...
Thanks again for your reading, and future entries and good luck!
