  • YONOS – Ethiopian Model
  • As a model, Yonos was fairly shy and lacked confidence, but he photographed well, and certainly had the bone structure for the job. I wanted to keep most of this, but soften the shadows and fill in the blownout highlights.
  • ORIGINAL PHOTOGRAPH
    by Giselle White of Webphotographix

  • WHAT WAS DONE:
  • 1. The shadows were lightened in Adobe Photoshop, so as to reveal the hidden detail.
  • 2.Blown-out highlights were replaced with natural skin tones, by applying the airbrush tool to those areas and then adjusting the overall exposure of the photo.
  • 3. The retouched photo was then copied several times, where various filters and actions were used to produce creative compositions.
  • 4.Sepia toned grayscale photo.
  • 5.Dark Red dutoned grayscale photo.
  • 6.Quadrant colored grayscale photo, Layer duplicated and multiplied at 50% opacity. Merged, with the vibrance and hue saturation adjusted.
  • 7.Text created and HDS Style (MY Action applied). A selection of the face was made, and the type/camouflaged pattern  placed on top of it at 60% opacity, and merged.
  • 8.The above photo was then passed through the gradient filter.
  • 9.Chrome Actions were applied to high-key, sepia-toned, grayscale photo.
