You'll of seen a couple of images I've created recently here on the blog, on Social media and in my portfolios of model Dan Holbeche. Dan has worked with me on a number of personal projects, some that will be shared this year. The last picture I worked on was a snow themed image involving plenty of photoshop work processing, retouching and effects, as does much of my work. However, I stumbled across one of the shots taken shortly after the snow pose, where Dan is wearing the same winter jumper but with a hat aswell, and I fancied having a play around with this with the aim of simplfying everything. I don't do too much on white background these days but I wanted to give this a black and white finish, so a simple white background would work well and emphasised the focus just on Dan.
So here is the final image. In terms of the post processing, I amended the crop a little bit to bring Dan's face closer and allow for some negative space, and I then worked on blemishes, details and some light work on shadows and highlights.
Hope you like. You can see a larger higher resolution version in my portfolios by clicking here.
One thing is for sure, I love black and white and don't create enough of it into my work. Something I want to change!
Thanks for stopping by.
