Re: My try on DRAGAN EFFECT

I make it with Joel Grimes tehnique. The point is that you take raw, make 2 copies, first photo make real flat, second photo make b&w with low contrast and put on overlay... than Ctrl+At+Shift+E and put this layer on overlay on 10-30%. Then make hi-pass layer on 20-50%. And also you must d&b image. Its all for make real contrast detailed image. And after this make color correct on your taste.
jbedford - good light, good work.

Re: My try on DRAGAN EFFECT

A couple of efforts using images from earlier in this thread. Folks keep chasing Dragan. But he always stays a few steps ahead.
