Still learning....Opinions always welcomed
This is too gray. The whites of the eyes need to be whiter. The whole shot is very gray.
Cute girl though. Get some shots with an expression, there's something doll-like about the lack of emotion.
Okay ready for a noob question?
how are you guys coverting pics to B/W on PS?
Ah, that is a bit of a Holy Grail... or more like my mother's Caeser Salad dressing recipe - she's not giving it up, at least not till she calls it quit.
Google it, there's thousands of ways, as well as several Actions, or software applications that will do it for you. Finally, every Digital Photography magazine has regular How Tos....
I use something from a guy called Fred Miranda called BW Workflow Pro. I don't have much time, and usually prefer to work up my own solutions in Photoshop... there are a lot of great ways that you can learn about on the Internet, or just search this site.
In the mean time, I dodged and burned a little, but can't say I made a meaningful improvement. I liked it better before I uploaded it, for some reason it just looks duller when it comes back at me over the internet. Not sure why...
Holy Grail huh...Well thanks for you help, that edited version is good....
I'll new some research on it, everything that I get is using plug-ins...I dont have a up to date PS but I'll do the best I can with what I have lol...
So I re-did the pic, I did it my own way...without plug ins
Opinions always welcomed!! Leared to use dodge/burn tools
