    Re: Idea how to accomplish this

    Thanks gedstar. My goal was to get ideas. I liked your idea and had never thought of using nik to help with some of my output. I was looking online at the nik collection and there seems to be some filters that might actually help me accomplish what I need to do. There were a couple of others that I was going to try that I hadn't thought of before as well.

    This is not an easy project and definitely has a learning curve to it. Thanks again. I am so looking forward to getting home after work and applying some of the techniques here.

    Re: Idea how to accomplish this

    Oh sorry, i tried several things... in the nick collection i thought in glamor glow at first for that look but dind't like it, i used strong noise instead.

    Nice, but you could desaturate the g clef more by using the sponge tool set to desaturate.

    Re: Idea how to accomplish this

    Eggy I see what you are saying. I am not sure how I missed that. I must have got into a tunnel vision mode. Do you think I should go over the whole image with the sponge set on desaturate or only the g clef?

    Re: Idea how to accomplish this

    It happens to me too when I'm 'overfocused'...

    I would only desaturate the g clef but I would also try to soften the hard black of the shirt by using image/adjustment/shadows-highlights

    Select only the shirt!

    Something like this and dodge the dark parts

    Re: Idea how to accomplish this

    So after some research, looking at the suggestions, and a little time and effort I finally came up with something super close. I don't think we will ever be able to duplicate things exactly but I can come close. I want to thank everyone for all their help. It definitely got the wheels turning. I just need a background that will be a bit lighter. Nothing I can't find at Walmart or something in the fabric department .

    Re: Idea how to accomplish this

    Hey Jaydog,

    I think what's missing is a bit of contrast, a soft blur, a stronger edge blur, and some noise.

    I quickly added two curves adjustment layers one dark and one light for a dodge & burn.
    I then added a soft Gaussian blur, and then used the blur tool set a 25% around the subjects edges.
    Then some noise.

    This is a fast example so it's not perfect.

    Re: Idea how to accomplish this

    Thanks Iamsam. I felt it was still missimg something. I'll take a look at it again. I also know that changing the background should help as well. I did add some noise but I think I was afraid of over doing it. This is one of those projects where you don't want to go over the too. But I didn't think of blurring the edges.

    It's not noise, what you need to add is pixelation in my opinion.
