Urban Ugliness

Tutorial 16 - Urban Ugliness

This tutorial is mainly produced by Mark Ridley of Highton-Ridley photography and shows the development of a stunning image from his Urban Uglinesss collection. Mark has a very strong style and a straight-forward approach that uses Photoshop and Dynamic Photo HDR to produce a high contrast HDR style image that adds real character to his urban scenes.

This week we finish up Mark Ridley's tutorial on how he produced his Urban Ugliness collection by taking a look and black and white conversion, contrast enhancement and adding vignettes all using Adobe Photoshop CS2. We also have a brand new promo code for Moo mini-cards specially for PhotoWalkthrough viewers and a special slideshow of some of the best images submitted to our Flickr group in the last few weeks.
Tutorial 16 marks the beginning of a 2 chapter screencast by Mark Ridley of www.highton-ridley.co.uk. Mark will show us how he's produced the high contrast black and white images using multiple different RAW processings from a single exposure. We also have the launch of a brand new competition where we'll give away a Plustek OpticFilm 7500i film scanner. And, of course, we have a new assignment.
