Here is an example of how to turn a simple studio portrait into a beautiful black and white image. It was too cold out to convince my wife to do this outside. Even if I did convince her, I didn’t want a coat in the picture. After about an hour with Adobe Photoshop this is what I came up for version 1. Happy Birthday!
I was looking for a old photograph of my dog and I came across this photo I took in Harrisburg of UFC’s Dennis Bermudez.
This a portrait of a martial arts owner I created. It looks pretty simple but it took over an hour to tone. First, I started with three different exposures of the subject. One for the basic exposure, one to tone down the highlights and one for the eyes. The background was created by adding a blurred gradient and texture overlay. It was finished with a custom tone, blurs and a border.
6th grade comes with a little teenage attitude. I changed this color photograph into a text illustrative portrait using color and the words attitude, 6th grade and 2014.
Too cold to go outside! I can take photographs inside and using my skills in Adobe Photoshop give you a simple to dramatic seamless background. The first person to try photo composting will receive a 20% discount on their total bill.
Note images need to have like lighting circumstances to work well and need to be shot on a contrasting background.
So you can’t afford to have an artist draw your child. I am able to convert any photograph into a digital pencil drawing. All images are printed on Hahnemuhle PhotoRag paper. PhotoRag is a beautiful matte paper with a small tooth. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions on the process.
