Edgy, Deep, Dark, and Gritty

I'm loving the results I've been getting the past couple days of the "Deep Thoughts" Photoshoot I did of my friend Lee.

I'm going for an edgy, deep, dark, and gritty feel. I'm using Photoshop CS3 for the editing with a number of actions/effects. I'm going with a some Boutwell's Totally Rad Actions and some Kubota Actions along with some of my own special blends of Photoshop work.

After running the actions I'm doing my own specials twists and tweaks to the shots to give them that extrea something and the results are just what I'm looking for.

As I normally do with my "people" photo shoots I'm editing an original looking version and then apply mutiple techniques/actions to the shots so that I end up with 2, 3, and even 4 versions of each. Although it's time consuming I like sticking with this technique because it gives me options when it comes to the photos. Just trying one form of prost processing is never enough of a variety for me unless I nail that PERFECT effect on the first try.

Here are some that have me really pleased:

















Even if this is not your type of post processing I hope I've conveyed what my vision is for the images to you. I have quite a few more photos from the session to go through and I'll be sure to share more throughout the editing process.

Let me know your thoughts...
