  • What are photographers doing now???

    I HATE this. I should probably rant about it and maybe I will but I am going to post it here first.

    The pic below is of Luis Santa. He's a cool guy and I have known him a while so I am not at all picking on him as this has NOTHING to do with him other than I am using his picture to show an example of what I hate.

    Why, why, why is this type of photography becoming popular now??? What is it? Is it photoshop or what are they doing to "pencil in" the shaded areas making the lighting/shadows so much more dramatic??

    I hate to go on and on about it but I absolutely fucking hate it.

    Isn't it some sort of Embossing function in photoshop?

        I totally agree. I was at a photo shoot with a guy from the Arnold. The guy looked great, but when I saw the pictures, I was like, "WTF, that couldn't be the same guy?" He had veins and striations that I never even saw. Unfortunately, this stuff has gone on for a while. It just has gotten much worse as technology advances. Before it would have just been regular photography tricks, but now they are completely distorting the pictures.

          It doesn't even look real. It looks more like a drawing or something.

            Yeah, it's Photoshop. High Pass filter, shapening, messing with contrast, etc...
            PM me to discuss website/video/dvd etc. related work.

              something like this, it's more obvious with a studio shot though..

                RS,

                Are you good with PS?...

                It would be cool to show how to much difference it can make if members submitted their photos. (Not to take up too much time...)

                I know with Graphic Converter, I can script it to do whatever function I want automatically to a batch of photos. (I use that to watermark photos right now.)
