I used a relatively simple method in Photoshop to bring out highlights that would have been lost in the original shot of this Harley Davidson. Here are the steps I used after I desaturated the image of all colors and deleted the background:
- Backed up original image
- Duplicated layer under the 'layer' tab (not the image tab)
- Added an 'Overlay'
- Ran a 'High Pass' under the 'filter' tab of 10 pixels
- Merged down under the 'layer' tab
- Saved image as
Half the fun using post processing software is in the experimentation of different settings. Other variations and effects can be achieved by using soft light and hard light in the overlay and altering the high pass radius value.
Congratulations to John Adams aka ThePres6 as this year's artist to be featured in Easy Riders and V-Twin Magazines March issue! I have read and enjoyed both these publications for many years. John's work will be seen by more than 1.5 million viewers world wide!
