Art from Found Photographs Sadly, works get forgotten. A good eye can bring new life if one has humor, knowledge and vision. The used pictures must be either yours, from the public domain or legal rights of usage having been obtained. Be prepared to explain image sources without being defensive or mad at the moderator. This does not diminish your art, just helps with historical provenance.

Wink What can you deliver from my 600 pixels wide GXR "Guerilla Snaps"?

So here's the challenge. Elsewhere I tested the GXR with a 50mm Macro lens to see just what the camera could deliver out of the camera with no fuss or editing and no use of the RAW file. The object there is primarily qualifying a performer for a position in a series of tableaux I'm working on. Still, the pictures have intent behind them and perhaps have a lot more to give than shows as delivered from the camera. This first one is just 450 pixels wide, but the rest are 600 pixels and should all be robust enough for editing.



Asher Kelman: Introducing Caitlin with $3500 of gold on her neck!

Available light, f4.9 1/20 sec 400 ISO, exposure bias 0.3 EV


Visit the thread here and download any one of the images you like and work on them to make them the most impressive as if they were your own. Then repost here. Just disclose how you did what you did to get what you got, (thanks Bart for the aphorism).

I know that Fahim has already worked wonder on at least one of my pictures!

duplicate the original.
Covert to grayscale. Or De-saturate.

Background copy = color
Layer above = monochrome

Experiment with blue/green/red curves for effect.
Overexpose and blur for glow.

Bring up the shadow details for the eye region with curves.

My lazy way. Use Nik Color Efex Pro.

Thanks Asher for allowing use of your image.

Charlotte,

Go ahead! All work though goes back to the original photographer in OPF when edits are done. I do like your work and it would be a delight.

Good job, Fahim. I like the use of Viveza. What a clever software program for Aperture, Photoshop and even iPhoto!

You have opened up the beauty and I really appreciate your efforts.

Thanks!

I used to different techniques as you can see- original Asher Kelman- overlay of black and white work done with one background a found photo of a simple door lined with newspaper to keep evil spirits away-and some shadow work-color

The second transposed and sepia, shadow and a simple picture of some torn paper and wire as an overlay background-the center is sepia focused-

It's good to see what is and find what might be. Thanks for your take!

Steps (as I recall - took less than 2 min)

1) Duplicated image
2) Copied Green channel to overall image
3) Used bottom image red channel to darken upper image green channel
4) Moved to LAB
5) Used a "Man From Mars" and "Color Boost" actions to add and boost color
6) Flattened and moved back to RGB
7) Duplicated
8) Sharpened eyes and lips
9) Blended top and bottom layers to soften sharpening

The deconstruction and rebuilding is original and impressive.

Kevin,

You would have loved Kodachrome! You work here brings in a lot of rich color, so different from the take of Fahim and Mark.

Thanks for the contribution!

Asher

P.S. where on earth did you come across the "Man From Mars" and "Color Boost" actions?

If I were to have spent more time, I would have eliminated the blue contamination on the flowers pedals. However, I like the interior of the flower. Overall, I like the result.

I have Margolis' book, Kevin. However it's not light reading, LOL.

I had no idea he taught at workshops or made these actions. I'd not imagined he'd do that. He seems so academic!

Asher Kelman: Lingerie


Edited by Bob Rogers

I frequently do something along these lines when the original is soft.

Steps:

duplicate layer

To top layer:
Filter, Blur, Smart Blur -- mode: overlay edges; quality: high; setting 8.6, 30.7
Opacity 15%

To bottom layer:
Filter, Artistic, Poster Edges: Settings 1,2,1

I was actually planning on posterizing the bottom layer and blurring it, when I hit the poster edges filter by mistake and decided I liked the look even better.

Thanks, Bob!

Any skilled darkroom photographer would raise his/her eyebrows off their heads with such work! This is really making a picture work beyond what's written by the electrons into the sensitive medium so when does photography fall by the wayside?

Still, I must admit I do appreciate your transformation a lot as it reduces the gap between real and fantasy and that's the object of fashion and dress. We see a superficial covering which helps us ignore the simplifications and inexactness of the plastic manneqquin as well as any few faults there are in the actress. So I like your work and doing what you did now seems an obvious path to take.

Could we do that in the darkroom? I bet someone could, but not I!

Asher

Asher,

Thank you for your kind words.

Anymore, I spend a lot of time doing graphic arts kind of stuff.

To me, whether it's photography, illustration, or some merger of the two, it's all about proportion and balance. A logical next step might be to isolate the model and the manneqquin and create a new background.

A friend of mine did a lot of posterization in fine arts classes through silk screens. Sounds like a fun way to transform photographic images -- he would make copies of the negatives onto kodalith at various exposures, and then print the liths onto the screens.

While I agree that you need to have your thinking cap on when reading his books, I disagree that he's academic. Once you understand more about color theory and how to apply that theory to Photoshop, you can have more arrows in your quiver.

For the benefit of others, here's the two books that Asher might have been referencing:

Professional Photoshop: The Classic Guide to Color Correction (5th Edition) [Paperback]

Photoshop LAB Color: The Canyon Conundrum and Other Adventures in the Most Powerful Colorspace [Paperback]

Please note that an Amazon affiliate link has been embedded.

If you go to Photoshop World, you can catch Dan Margulis there. Or, you can view his videos at Kelby Training.

I hope this information is helpful.

As an aside, my version was extremely quick. If one were doing this for real, then more care would be taken on the flowers and other parts of the picture. Instead, I just wanted a more lively picture, a Kodachrome version.

Hi Asher,


I couldn't resist the temptation of playing with this photo. I thought giving it a more edgy look and emphasize the model's presence. Here's a quick sketch with the PP used. I hope you like it!




Asher Kelman: Window, Weitzman Shoe Store
Edited by Ruben Alfu


1. Distort image (Lens Correction)
2. Composite metal frame
3. Add Levels Adj. layer, Difference mode
4. Play with levels and Blend if in Adj. Layer
5. Merge visible - New layer, Linear Light Mode
6. Adjust Transparency and Blend If in new layer to control contrast


Regards,

Ruben

Thanks, Ruben,

I'm glad I noticed this today.

I like the bolder impression Caitlin gives in the bowed window. Great idea! I'd never have thought of that.

Mark,

As I said, the deconstruction and rebuilding is original and impressive. I omitted one important feature you added light!

Even more I realize that this light entering between the fragments is important. Reminds me of the words of "The Anthem" by Leonard Cohen, the chorus of which is


Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack in everything
That's how the light gets in.

Listen to the song here! Let the light in!

Asher

I hope it is alright to play with this photo since the thread is from last year but I've been looking up old threads and the weather is stormy out, I'm bored and this felt like it would be fun to attempt. If it is okay, I may attempt some of the other ones. :-)

I hope you like my attempt, Asher.



To me the image was all about her eyes and her stare and I loved that there was light coming from behind her and wanted to emphasize that.

My procedure:
-dupe
- hue/saturation set to colorize, pulled to the blue and almost completely desaturated to leave it almost black and white with just a tinge of the bluish tone.

- Cleaned out the background and exchanged it with white

- cropped off the top of the image

- Added a white gradient coming in from the upper left to accentuate the light source from behind. I wanted to blow out the corner and highlight her hair.

- Ctrl J an orchid to replace the bottom one which was a bit over-exposed.

-Selectively screen the lower portion of her beautiful eyes to make them really intense and selectively multiply pupils and contour of the iris.

- Some selective dodge to accentuate the light on her face

- High pass filter set to soft light on her eyes and lips only

Actually I had not noticed it, but are you talking about the song by Leonard Cohen... ahem, have you ever read my sig? :-D It's a favorite of mine and have used it as my sig for years now.

There have been intense storms here all day and I had to shut down for a bit but have done another one since. Again, I enjoyed playing with the light.
The original:

and when I saw it I loved the light on the left and tried to accentuate it and accentuate the lines from the bottom right and left to pull the eye toward the cow and her face.

so I did this:

- dupe of course (and merging in between but always keeping the original free of edits)
-Multiply and selectively darken the right side (to us) of her face and the shadows on her fingers
and some touches on her jacket.
-screen, eyes a bit, parts of the hair, and lines of the jacket and the fingers to create leading lines towards her face and the cow beneath it.
- added a texture set to multiply, mask out with a gradient mask and mask out the face and jacket etc., too.
-added the same texture but inverted it (turns a bluish color) then hue/saturation to a ocher type tone and then set that to screen and use a layer mask and bring it back only on the wall on the left side.

These are so much fun to do so thank you for providing them for us to play!

Well done Maggie,

The multiply, I'd use but didn't think of here and the screen, I don't use, often at all. Tell me why you chose it and what makes it work so well here? Where did you get the texture?

Maggie,

I've started a new thread devoted to your spark of great ideas using special blending modes and textures to give a picture a great finish and presence. I commend your work and hope others will equally share their own ideas too here

Asher,

Ever the gentleman, thank you. I didn't mean to impede on your thread, just wanted to show why I would choose to use something like a texture. Basically, it is important that people shouldn't use them to disguise a bad image, instead to enhance a certain feeling. Your images were great to start with and were a lot of fun to play with. Thanks for giving me the opportunity, especially since this thread was started ages ago.

/maggie gently bows out, :-)

Just being my crazy self. I just carried on with the already ragged edges - added to them - and made a cutout. I pulled the exposure way down (except for on the girl) and applied a 3 color gradient (orange, blue, pink) onto that layer. I sampled one of the brown colours from the center of the layer to use as the background color and then overlayed the other closer up shot of the same scene. Added a few strips of highlight from angle to angle. Ran the whole thing through Nik ColorEfex Pro Duplex Filter.

Rob,

I just discovered your contribution. I like the formalization and extension of the irregular motif.
