Re: how to do metallic/deep bw images

Rembrandt lighting (softbox camra right) with a black board on the opposite side to increase contrast. Watch the underwear black as it is just light enough to see detail. The left thigh looks to be a reflection of the right thigh.

Notice that he is also wearing a black shirt. And the abs look a bit helped with the burning. In the olden days, they would use oils to selecively lighten parts of the body like that. Now you can use PS D&B to do it but it may take longer.

Hope it helps,

painter... The cs4 or photoshop equivalent with the shadow/hilight ... There is a mid tone contrast at the bottom when you click advanced.

Highlight, Midtone, Shadow. I know what it means but what does it mean in PS?
How did you convert to b/w.
