Create a dramatic and harsh bodybuilding or athletic sports portrait in Photoshop. Learn how to get the “Golden Effect”. Right from getting the tone and the lighting corrected in Lightroom to changing the background and applying advanced cross processing and photo effects in Photoshop, we’ll cover it all.
In this tutorial, we’ll be creating a high contrast, gritty and dramatic portrait with a lot of amazing lighting effects. We’ll start off in Lightroom from the RAW image. There’s we’ll make out the black and white image, get everything adjusted, sharpened and import it in Photoshop.
Once we are in Photoshop, firstly, we would change the background. But here’s the thing, changing the background from white to black is quite a task as it results in something called fringe. Fringe is nothing but a white or black edge formed after extracting the subject. We’ll learn how to deal with it too. After that, we’ll be applying some highly advanced cross process, lens flares and fading effects to the image.
