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.
