Dragan Alternative?

Hi guys,

I'm a massive fan of the work of Andrzej Dragan, but unfortunately Mr Dragan doesn't update his site very often so i was wondering if anyone could reccomend any other photographers with a simlar style.

I know this request is a tough one as Dragan's work is very unique, but i thought I'd just ask.

Incidentally, please don't send me in the direction of Greenberg, Hill or Fiscus!

Many thanks

Re: Dragan Alternative?

How about developing your own style?

What a really well educated and informed response, you must be pleased with that one.

If anyone else has any suggestions!

The problem with that is 99% of the hits are poor emulations of Dragan's style.

I was looking for another 'pro' with a similar style....

Re: Dragan Alternative?

Here is link to tutorial how to get such effect as mr. Dragan:

http://novell.ftj.agh.edu.pl/~tarasi...kt_Dragana.pdf

If it does not open and download here is another:

http://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&q=...-BfErj0-b8NYvg

With this one above U have to right clik on the blue link (very left top) that says: POBIERZ(2922 KB) and dowload as pdf file.

Unfortunately it is in polish, but if U use google translator I think U will understand tha main idea of this tutorial as it has photos. Best luck !

Re: Dragan Alternative?

Thanks for the tutorials, but I'm not actually looking for tuts, just a link to an alternative photographer!

Incidentally, the tutorial with the Al Pacino image is terrible, the poor guy looks like something out of Day of the Dead!
