Re: Fine Art Technique

Agree with garibaldi, technique is one thing but the mood is the whole thing, and that's just feeling.

Re: Fine Art Technique

Thank guys. Yes. It is black black, white whites as you say like a very high contrast, but very controlled. Well. Practice makes perfect.

The long exposure and composition is probably the easiest or at least easier part, I think it's the dogding and burning and toning I am struggling with...

Re: Fine Art Technique

Well garibaldi.

It's all well and good telling me what is done but can you help me out further by given examples or at least talking me through a workflow that you migh conjour up...

It's that deep contrast between the blacks and white I struggle with without pushing the image too far using basic PS techniques

Re: Fine Art Technique

the technique of dodging and burning is straightforward, its just applying it to the areas of the image that need it, theres a few different techniques to doing it, using the d&b tools in ps, a 50% grey layer set to overlay and then painitng on it, etc. you can also get to a better B7W image by using channel mixer in monochrome, or popping through the indivdual RGB channels and applying them or copying them in an isolated manner. As far as the actual application though, that is individual discretion, and something that you have to have a feel for, theres no workflow for that, its our eye. But you can target specific areas of the image and use it to whatever extent you feel it needs in that particular area.

Re: Fine Art Technique

Thanks garibaldi.

Do you know of any tuts for this overlay method. What I tend to do is create a new layer, set to mutliple, apply mask and burn in areas I want, then do the same with on a screen layer.

When you paint with black on the overlay layer (which Ive tried) does white also affect this layer for the highliighst.

Been investigating the seperating of the channels and rearanging the order and applying a mask and doging and burning on each..

Cheers

Re: Fine Art Technique

why does that guys voice wound so whacked in that video, he sounds like he molests children. sort of like a robotic molester.
I think your making this more comlcated than it is, it doesnt really matter what trick you use, you have to just be good at it. Especially in a black and white image, its much easier, becasue all your dealing with is the range from pure black to pure white, so it just boils down to knowing where to place it

I don't know how a child molester sounds like. I do know that ManWithNoName_ requested a tutorial. I was just trying to help.
