This week I want to go through a technique that I was shown by Photographer Tim Wallace for adding contrast to your images. Now I’ll admit, this is a technique I was aware of but had never used but when Tim told me he used it, well…you’ve seen his work right? Need I say more
This technique makes use of the Luminosity of an image and it’s there that the contrast is added by creating a Luminosity Mask. The result of this is that contrast is added to the image but the colours remain intact and don’t become overly saturated as can normally happen.
Anyway I’ll leave you to click Play where all will be revealed,
Photoshop being Photoshop there are limitless ways to do the same thing and there’s really no ‘wrong’ way, it’s just what you prefer and what fits best into your workflow; if anything this is another tool to be put into your ‘Photoshop Tool Bag‘.
If you have any questions or comments then as always please feel free to make use of the comments section below, but in the mean time have a great weekend!
