  • Simple, yet strong

    Hi__Just want to share. There are no garments or cosmetics, only an ear loop. Yet, there's much strength and character in this portrait of a beautiful young black child___MH

    I quite agree, Murray! A lovely head study.

      I like the texture and soft details in this. The downward look creates a feeling of sadness or meditation. There may be a slight purple cast to this image, but with color you can produce a variety of psychological moods in your images.

      For instance, if you changed the background color to a cool hue you would be amazed in how much it would change the mood created by this image. Cool colors such as violet help to slow down the perception of time and express sadness, trust and loyalty. Purple is also associated with dignity, respect, and used to suggest luxury and nobility.

      I might tone down the hotspot on the forehead and the white area around the hair, but overall nicely done Murray.

        tinting backgrounds
        by notmydog
        Hi all, sorry if this has been asked and answered already.

        I'm trying to tint the background in an image, say from white to blue/purple whatever. I've tried using a fill layer with a mask but it's tricky to mask certain areas (hair/etc) properly. I thought that certain blend modes might...

        colorizing questions
        by WRM
        I'm a fairly new photoshop user and I would love some feedback or help for this image I've posted. I've got a few images like this one that I have questions about.

        1) Black hair--what is the best way to do black or dark hair on a subject? On this one, I used a level adjustment layer,...

        Colors for Colorization
        by LonK
        I think I'm getting the hang of colorization, but I often hit a roadblock. That is deciding what colors to use.

        I have a scan of a photo of my grandfather taken some 100 years ago. He was born in 1899 if you want to guess. I've prepped it to the point where I'd be comfortable starting...
