    Hi,

    [​IMG]

    This guy is my favourite photographer in India. I adore his street photography shots becauase they always have a story in them. His Post Production (PP) (mostly high contrast B/w with pop-out eyes of the subject) brings unmeasurable emotion in the pictures.

    I like to understand if this style of PP is of any specific style. And if you can suggest any tutorial, pl. do. Thanks

    Don't know what guy you're referring to, your picture is blocked, but... I've experience drama in LR post in pictures that you can't seem to get the contrast right in. Most of the time they are over exposed IMO. Try starting with an underexposed shot and see if you can get the effect you want. I'm shooting in the blind, but this is what I took from your question, without the photo.

    It doesn’t sound like the photo you posted is yours. You can link to the photo but it’s against the forum rules to post images that are not yours.
