Editing Via PhotoShop

Initially when I first started editing images I decided to rework some of the slightly more abstract images that I captured within the earlier photo shoots. When I first started editing my tutor Jonathan Worth showed me some interesting ways of achieving different effects using dueotone, gradients and curves as a few to mention. I decided to edit the images through stage and these stages I will show below, visually and through the written word.
Here is a link to the screen recording of reworking the images with help from my tutor Jonathan Worth-  http://youtu.be/y_SbjXOCilk

Stage 1 –

Open the image up within photoshop.

Change the image to black and white.

Within the adjustment settings, add a tint to the photo.

Now that I had added a tint to the frame, I would then go into curves.

From this point I would then alter the curves of the image, changing the general contrast balance and saturation.

I then went into Image > mode > greyscale.

After changing the image into greyscale, I would then go back into image > mode > Duotone.

Once I was in duotone, it was important to check that the 1st ink was black, 2nd ink was Pantone 437CVC and that the 3rd ink was pantone 127CVC. The type of tone was called Tritone.

After the Duotone, I would then go into gradient.

Screen shot 2013-05-21 at 02.56.22Stage 10

Once in gradient I altered style – Radial, scale – 150% and ticked both the reverse and dither box’s.

I then would go into paint brush and and burn aspects of the imagery that needed some extra work.

From here I would then go into layer > merge visible, this flattened down the layers of reworking that I had just completed.

And theres my final frame.
