Troy poses as the “Thinker” in Virgina City, Montana
This image took some serious editing in Camera Raw and Photoshop, because this image was way overexposed. First I opened it in Camera Raw, and turned down the Exposure and Brightness, then I turned up the Fill Light. This made things look pretty flat, but not as bright, so I added Blacks and Contrast. Finally I changed it to Grayscale and played with the color sliders to adjust the different areas of grayscale to bring out some contrast. Then I finished with Curves to balance the Levels.
Finally I opened it it Photoshop to add some Sharpening and a little airbrushes to even out his skin. It was cold outside so his nose and cheeks had some red blotches that needed smoothing. Then I brightened up his eyes with a little sharpening and dodging.
