I’m just done with the processing on the above image of Alex. I like it. I hope he does too.
Below you can see the image as it appeared straight out of camera. So rather than describe everything I did in the processing I’ll let the two images speak for themselves.
I knew what I wanted the final result to look like and I also knew that I would need to remove a bunch of distracting detail from the original. The result is pretty close to what I had in mind. I don’t mind using photoshop to get the result I wanted but it would have been faster if he had just changed his clothes in the first place.
