I was scanning, repairing and framing a very old Black & White photograph of myself (1960's) when I realised that it would be the perfect vehicle to demonstrate duotones, tritones and other Photoshop Jiggery Pokery. So I started playing with duotones and tritones and with some added a new version of colour popping (the eyes) to see what effects I could get.

What surprised me about this exercise was just how much my expression seemed to change according to what duotone/tritone I used - calm -> serious -> demonic! I don't see many duotones and tritones on this site, or anywhere for that matter, so I thought that this experiment was worth posting.

The original photograph was taken by camera club member on Teesside and is incredibly battered. The photographer is probably long dead by now. Such is the power of Photoshop that I have been able to repair the major cracks.

Anyway thank you for looking and I hope you find the exercise interesting.

A very interesting exercise. It may be the way that the contrast, and light and shadows change in each image that changes its affect, contributing more to the change than the tri/duo-tone.

These are lovely..................... and I must say you have very beautiful eyes! I cant choose a fave, I like them all and its a great idea. The image is very very sixties and reminds me of the photo's that used to be in hairdressers, I used to spend a lot of time looking at them while my Mum had her hair setSmile
Brilliant Lynne!

Wow!

I agree duo toning is under used. I do a lot of mono with duo toning, especially mods, and it can make a very ordinary image look great.

Why not submit a technique on this to the techniques section?

What gorgeous eyes.
Personally I like the sepia tones in V8 and 12.
Are your eyes the green colour in V1?
How about a photo of you now?
It would be nice to see behind the avatars.

BTW I did get that email and such an improvement. Have to have a proper look at it though as just had a quick look. Thank you. Moira

I can't recall seeing such ''sophisticated'' ladies in the 60s Lynne.At least not at the discos I went too anyway. I reckon you were more a ballroom type of a girl.
The only way to see girls like you were the glamour mags' in the barber shops.I never quite understood why they had these mags' in a gents barber shop,but I suppose they thought us guys would never buy them and take them home.Of course we always thumbed through the bike and car mags first and when we saw no one was looking we picked up the glamour mag.I suppose the reason could have been for the mothers that brought their little boys in for a haircut,but at 20 years old,who in their right mind would bring their mother with them ? Besides,with mummy sitting next to you,what boy would read the mag,even at 20 year old !! You have heard of a bakers dozen,so a good barbers dozen here !!

Interesting subtle variations in tones.......your jiggery pokery has been so worth while.
V 1 is my favourite, followed believe it or not by V 12.
Interesting to read what others find most satisfying.

Holy cow...you're a classic beauty!!!!

Now before looking through the versions, I did something I almost never do. I read through ALL the comments. And it's been so interesting what people have had to say, Lynne.

For me, my favourites are 1, 5 and 8. V8 looks like those old photos of glam actresses. V5 is like the BW photos from my childhood.

Dear Lynne, I have taken so long to comment because... well the series is a very difficult one on a french outback narrowband connection.
Now in the early morning of a hot summer night it worked at last and it was worth every minute of wating!!!!
