Tough Guy

This is my son Ton. He's 6 years old. He wanted to be a real tough guy so I told him to look angry and then I played a little in Photoshop to make him look even more toougher then he already did.

Kind Regards,

    Thanks everyone for your comments.

    @Sandra Soulas: My son didn't want to pose long for me that day so I had to be quick. I had 2 soft boxes each on a side of him and I even had a snoot on the back (to lighten his hair and back so he would come loose from the background). But cause I had to be quick I forgot to check the snoot (background light) and when I was finished and looked at my display it turned out that my snoot wasn't working. ;-( My son didn't want to pose anymore so I couldn't do it over. Still I liked this one, even without the snoot. :-)

    In his hair he had a lot of gel and I added even some red gel in the spikes.

    Afterwards in Photoshop, I played a bit with curves. Then I turned it into black & white with Channel Mixer and then put the opacity back so the color came a bit through. This was the endresult.

    Kind Regards,

    Hi Tamara, this is great. I love the detail in the hair. What was your lighting?

    Excellent capture!!
    The lighting & darker tones make him look tough!! ;-))
    I think the spikey hair helps too.

    Best wishes!!
