Sorry for taking so long to do another post on here been a bit busy and not allocating my time properly.
I did another sport portrait, with 3 images, clouds, basketball court and our player. After I did the selection around our player, I then concentrated on the background with the idea of making it more dramatic with a bit of punch, but always making sure it didn’t take the viewers away from the main image.
I then put it together using selections, color contrast and other filters to make it as realistic as possible.
After I finish the image I use a Plug-in call Topaz which you can buy at www.topazlabs.com, you can also trial it before you buy it.
I used the filter Portrait drama to finish of my image which gave it that gritty and punch look I wanted.
It took me about 3 hours to do and a lot of patience, I’m quite happy with what I finished with I hope you guys like it too.
Here the book I used to learn the techniques, from Amazon.
