Exclamation 8-Bit Layered TIFF for Retouching & Reference

Hi everyone,

I wanted to share the following two files to practice and learn your dodging and burning. The image in question was well lit and it has great highlights to practice your D&B skills—should you fancy.


Before (TIFF for practice, EDU purposes only please): http://www.ronaldnztan.com/temp/TAN_20111007_365.zip

After (8-BIT TIFF for EDU purposes only please): http://www.ronaldnztan.com/temp/TAN_...U_USE_ONLY.zip


If you have questions, please don't hesitate to ask. :-)

Happy dodging and burning!

—Ron

Re: 8-Bit Layered TIFF for Retouching & Reference

Hello Ronald!

I'm a newbie here and is probably not my place to tell you, but FULL FIGURE file which is 720 X 916 pixels size is simply unacceptable for any serious D&B work.

Anyway, THANX for the good will to contribute and share!

You're not downloading the RIGHT file! I provided two links, my process BEFORE file weighing in at 93 MB and the finished image showing my layer work for comparing purposes.


I was once a newbie to this forum and I have LEARNT quickly to THOROUGHLY read posts properly.

Re: 8-Bit Layered TIFF for Retouching & Reference

Hello, again!

After downloaded a full size image (my bad, original file is 3456 × 5184 pixels
so I owe you an apology!), I took some time to retouch/improve it.

Unfortunately, the MAIN flaw (my opinion, NO hard feelings!) of this photo is a bad composition (read: "decapitated head"), so I was unable to do anything about that. Also, original image is a bit too grainy/noisy which is not good for any serious retouching, especially for D&B. Besides that, the rest is quite fine - I like light a LOT!

Re: 8-Bit Layered TIFF for Retouching & Reference

I certainly do NOT appreciate unsolicited comments on my photography. You owe me an additional apology. You come into my kitchen and had free food and complained that it tasted bad.


I think something is wrong with that.


I have no use for this image, I provide "AS IS" so others could practice dodging and burning, there are plenty of highlights and shadows that could be utilized (draw/trace in) to enhance and create an "illustrative" portraiture look.

For you sake and since you're a neophyte, know when to exercise discretion in providing feedback WHEN ASKED!


Regarding the noise comment, it was made to look FILMY!

You mean NEGATIVE (comments)?

A kind of. (But don't forget that I'm only guest "in your kitchen"! )

Btw, I am REALLY sorry that you finding my opinion offensive; the essence of this forum is to learn from each other through exchanging opinions, rather than share only compliments and praises.

But, as I said before, I am just a newbie that passes around so you don't have to feel bad because of my opinion...
