Cowboy ...
« on: April 01, 2016, 06:52:30 AM »
Three shots from an actor portfolio shoot I did last week.  These started off as a bit of fun, but I'm looking to offer it as a service.  Click any image to see the rest of the images.

Hope you like :)

I'm with Todd, I like the first as well.

The last one has possibilities, perhaps it needs to look more "old-worldly" as if shot on a tin-plate? It currently looks too "new-trying-to-look-old", and I do like the reverse vignetting. :)

I think some old photo grunge would help it.   The Drama on the first is strong. Is there any detail to be pulled out of the left eye just enough to see it a bit?
Sort of like this:

Thanks Todd, that's perhaps my favourite too :)

Thanks Nanette :) 

I was just messing around with the last one, a 10 sec job in Silver Efex.  Instragram here I come, lol

old photo download as a layer I think on "color add" layer mode, than faded a bit the curve helps it look less full range, like an faded old photo actually is.

The download is from Deviant art, an incredible resource for many PS FX.  see the link above
