Noir vs Tattoos.
Another photo from the Houston Ink Society series. I did the normal Nik Software gamut that I've done and explained on the other shots of Judith and Heather.
Camera Raw --> PS CS5. In Camera Raw I upped the blacks to 100% and that was it. Exported to PS and used the Bleach Bypass tool in Color Efex Pro 3 and adjusted the settings till i got the look I was going for. Then put a layer of Silver Efex Pro 2.0 on top of it with a red filter and a control point on Heather's face to bring the brightness down just a tad.
As always, let me know what you think, whether it's good or bad. Thanks for checking out my stuff.
