I had a request this week for an photo of a hockey player named darryl boyce who played for UNB and then went to the Toronto Maple Leafs. This was not the image they wanted but i had shot a few shots of players before the game in the hallway getting ready which i never did anything with. A good idea at the time but then no time to follow through, just move on to the next shoot and repeat. I am glad i found this one however as it was not much to begin with but after 5 minutes or so i was happy with it. It was quite flat and the color was bad, and everything else in the shot was as bright as he was. I started by darkening a new layer and masking him out. A couple curves for highlights and shadows and a bit of sharpening and i was pretty much there. I took out a couple distracting bright objects around him and was done.
