Second shot in a series to market tee-shirst. Trying to maintain urban look, but focus viewer on the tee-shirt art work.

I like both your posts and think they would be ideal for the purpose you have in mind.

However, I can't help thinking that they need a bit of contrast or saturation boost. I'm not very technical on such things but just feel they need a bit of a boost. Perhaps even just a selective boost on the T shirt designs themselves. Great poses and compositions too.

Regards,

Syd

Great suggestion.

I see what you mean a little more saturation of colors on the shirt would make it stand out more. Looks a little faded now I see what you mean.



Thanks

I like this more than the first one for sure. The dollar sign by his ear is very distracting, it almost seems to be floating in the air between him and the wall.

I wonder about selectively coloring some of the grafitti?

I wonder about moving him off the wall and bluring the background with a shallow DOF?

The right side edge is distracting.



I do love the way his hat, his chin and the neck strap all move together and bring your eye down to the tee shirt.

It's a great concept.

Yes, I think this photo could use a bit of contrast. It is a little washed out. COuld have been the conversion to B&W. There are some ways in photoshop to convert to B&W that are better than others.

Also, the use of color is a great way to draw attention. But is the attention you want in this photo on the shirt? or the subject wearing it.

Which photoshop conversion method gives the results that look the most like reeal film?

I converted this one by changing from RGB to Grayscale. I have tried desaturation but didn't like results.
