Thread: How to get those results?

    Default How to get those results?

    So I was going through Brett Walker's flickr page http://www.flickr.com/photos/brettwalker/ and I wondered how he processes his images to get those effects on his BW portraits. I've been playing with some of my images with horrid results since am a novice when it comes to post processing and photoshop.

    Not sure what is so special. Seems like he added 'film grain', i.e., noise.

    Play with the noise filters. If you don't like what you see.

    not just as simple as film grain

    there is a lot of dodging and burning work there.

    You're probably right, but what else. The eyes of his portraits seem to shine and pop out the picture more than the rest. Its always good to focus on the eye when taking portraits makes for a better photo, but am sure he does something to them in ps to further enhance the look.

    Processing is one aspect, but lighting technique and lens is equally important.

    I believe the hard part is in the burning/dodging and the use of layers to acheive the "grainy" effect...
