5/5/05 - Thoughtful Thursday?
ds20041228_0129amwF dds.jpg

Thinking, "Hmmm, 5-5-5 (or 05-05-05). That's pretty cool." (I'm easy to keep entertained.) Still experimenting with light and shadow. Used a little more red channel in channel mixer when converting to monochrome. (Hmmm, I need to try Jude's trick of leaving some of the color in the light. Actually, this shot has some interesting possibilities. Don't be suprised to see it again.)

PP - (No cropping); Adjustments to the color original: auto color, levels to deepen shadows on left half of face, fiddle with hue/saturation, apply 81A filter to warm up; Convert to monochrome with channel mixer (28/64/8), then bump red to 38 and back off on the overall about -15 to darken a little and nudge the contrast. (All done with adjustment layers)
