This is me over the summer... i used photoshop for the effects
Very nice effect. Reminds me of some old punk album covers I have.
A touch over-processed for my taste, but quite a good image overall. You've developed quite a unique style that works pretty well with the B&W/Goth look. So, clicked. Looking forward to what's next.
High contrast two tone works well here.
This one is great Heather. I like it more every time I look at it. And the rest of your portfolio is impressive too.
Keep em coming
Nice shot. I would have preffered to see just a little tone in the models face. Great stuff though.
This is excellent work, I really love this effect.
nice effect, very rancid style!! good picture, great band on your t-shirt!!
like it .. suitably impressive and think the effects suit the image (my humble opinion )
Love the effect, works really well with the subject.
Thank you very much for the comments. what can I say im a lil punk girl! lol ---concert tees and jeans is all I need!!!
WOuld like to know how you got this effect (I clicked but didn't comment before).
I see you used Photoshop for the editing. I also heard you were curious on how to create a B/W image with some elements left color. Here is how!!
Open your image. Choose SELECT ALL. Then choose COPY.
Select FILE and NEW. This should create a blank picture of the same size as the "copy". PASTE your image into the blank document.
At this point you should have 2 identical images. CONVERT the new one to GRAYSCALE.
Now, choose SELECT ALL on the black and white version. Again choose COPY.
Ok, here is the fun part. On the origional make a new layer. This later should be transparent by default. Now, PASTE your black and white image into the new layer. Your color image should turn grey when you pasted the image in.
Here comes the fun part. Zoom the image to about 300-400% on the area you want color. Select the ERASER and remove the grey image over the desired color area. If you work slowly you should end up with a perfect looking image. I'll post an image I made in my gallery using this technique.
Phil has given you the expert way which is very prescise.
The lazy way is to Select the areas you want to remain in colour, Inverse selection, and then Desaturate, and then Deselect.
Awsome, thank you very much guys! Ill try this on my next picture!
