Gray or color? for.. Tigeress. And any suggestions on how to edit it to make it look better?
I like the black and white because of the color cast in the first one. I did a quick edit in PS just to see what could be done in the first one.
(again, I hope you don't mind the edit, just keep in mind that it is rough)
I can't get over how much better it looks! I'm definately gunna practice Adobe more. =P Is that what you used?
yeah, i'll lay out the steps i used.
I made 3 new BLANK layers...
I picked a color for each and painted over the original on the layer I assigned for that particular object.
I feathered the edges of each new layer and the cut down the opacity to somewhere around %40-60 for each. Then I played around with the different blending modes to get the effect I wanted.
There are actually much better ways to do it, but that just took me a couple of minutes..
Oh forgot to mention the first step I took was running it through Noisware Pro.......
I like the camera position and the pose. The lighting (as far as I can ascertain) is pretty good. I think I can see modeling on her left side. I'm not a fan of noise or grain (either natural or post-enduced). I think you have high potential as a pro photographer.
Thank you, a lot. I hope I succeed.
I think her camera is 1mp or less, thus the reason for the grain. I don't think she added any in on purpose. I ran it through noiseware to KILL the noise, but there was so little information there to begin with, it looks like everything has been smudged around in my edit.
I like the color better, sometimes black and white seems to make photos more interesting but here I think the color is more interesting.
of the first two, I like the b&w version much more (including the noise/grain!).
I also like the edited version ... abit oversaturated, almost a bit surreal.
nice model by the way
Ohhh thanks, I modelled for myself. =P
you did a good job. Too bad about the grain, but the composition is good, I like the feel these pictures have. And your modelling is also good.
The edit really brings out the potential of this picture.
Keep it up!
