Photoshop Tutorial: The 5 Steps to a Double Raw Conversion

Following on from the previous post, here’s a walk through of the ‘Double Raw Conversion’ technique I mentioned about and that I use to create high contrast images with lots more detail showing through. This is a technique that I use on most images and especially when I’m looking to turn the image to black & white.

All credit goes to the King of F.A.D. (Freak Amazing Details) … Calvin Hollywood from whom I learned this technique …

Step 1: Open your image in Camera RAW
The first step in the Double Raw Conversion involves opening your image in Camera Raw and then sending it into Photoshop as a Smart Object. Normally when we’re in Camera Raw we have the option to simply ‘Open Image‘ however if we hold down the SHIFT key the ‘Open Image‘ dialogue box changes to ‘Open Object‘ as you can see below…

Clicking on this now opens the image in Photoshop as a Smart Object. Once in Photoshop we then create a duplicate of this Smart Object layer but we need to do this in a particular way…

Step 2: Create a ‘Copy’ of the Smart Object Layer
We now need to make a copy/duplicate of this Smart Object layer. Now, if we simply pressed CMD/CTRL + J this would indeed make a copy however any changes we make to this copy of the Smart Object will be made to both layers. This we don’t want to happen, so there’s a way we can create a copy/duplicate so that any changes we make only affect that layer and that is by going to the Layer Menu, selecting Smart Objects and then New Smart Object via Copy

We now have a copy/duplicate of this Smart Object Layer so the next stage is to double click on that layer to open it back up in Camera RAW…

Step 3: Create a Desaturated High Contrast Image
Now that we are back in Camera Raw we are going to create our high contrast image by having a play around in the Basic Module…

I tend to stick to using the Clarity, Fill and Black Sliders and then reduce the Saturation to -100 before returning to Photoshop. The reason for this is that I’m happy with the colour of the original image but I want to increase the contrast and details. Desaturating the image allows us to use the contrast and details without affecting the colour as you’ll see in the next step…

Step 4: Change Blend Mode
Once back in Photoshop we then change the Blend Mode of this ‘black and white’ Smart Object layer to ‘Luminosity‘ which means we’re only seeing the contrast and details showing through…

Step 5: Add a Black Layer Mask
The final step is to then only reveal the contrast and details in those parts of your image that you want it to show through. So, all we have to do then is to add a Black Layer mask to hide the effect and then with a white brush, paint it back in to where we want to see it. In this particular image I only wanted the contrast/details to show through on the models’ clothing…

So, there you have it…the 5 quick and easy steps to a Double Raw Conversion; a technique I use on virtually all of my images and especially those that I’m going to be converting to Black & White which I do 100% of the time using Nik Silver Efex Pro.

    DaveT - Excellent. Your clear explanation and examples makes this process so easy to understand.

    I like the tip about using the smart objects, it makes so much sense and is a time saver. Having recently shifted up to CS5 I can at last use smart objects, so I look forward to having a go with this technique.

    BTW my copy of ‘Layers’ by MK has arrived.

    Thanks for the tips.

    Dave

  • March 2, 2011 - 8:09 am

    DaveT - Glyn,

    Forgot to ask – is this the technique you used to bring out the detail in the pin striped suit? I suspect it is, but just thought I’d check.

    Dave

  • March 2, 2011 - 10:19 am

    Glyn - @DaveT…Hey mate, glad you liked the ‘walk through’ and good to hear that Matt K’s book has turned up; be sure to check out the final chapter…it’s a killer!

    Cheers,
    Glyn

    ps> Re the pin stripes on Richard’ suit, they were brought out using a different technique but one I did a video for a while back now but on a car. Here’s a link to the video where the ‘enhancing the details’ section is towards the end; hope it helps :)

    Ward - After your last blog I googled double raw conversion and saw an explanation. Yours is clearer and easier to follow. Thanks, I like your blogs.

  • March 2, 2011 - 11:03 am

    Glyn - Thanks Ward. Might have been a different story if I’d done what I was originally going to and recorded a video. Hearing my accent may have made you say otherwise…lol :)

    DaveT - Thanks Glyn,

    Tim Skipper - Cool effect Glyn. BTW you coming to the states any time soon?

  • March 3, 2011 - 3:30 am

    heather - Again, thank you for teaching! I will try this technique tomorrow. I have my first official indoor photoshoot – super stoked! Thanks again.

  • March 3, 2011 - 10:57 am

    Ian Pack - Hi Glyn, thanks for sharing this one. I’m more of a lighting guy than post-production, but this just goes to show that with the right light and knowledge of post-production you can easily create the image you previsualised.

    Cheers, Ian

  • March 3, 2011 - 11:15 am

    Glyn - @Tim…Yeah I intend to be over a couple of times this year mate and certainly a few next, so I’ll keep you posted.

    Cheers :)

  • March 3, 2011 - 11:17 am

    Glyn - @Heather…You’re so welcome; don’t mention it :) Hope the indoor shoot went well; would love to see what you got up to if you’re able at some point.

    Best wishes,
    Glyn

    Glyn - @Ian…Thanks for dropping by and commenting mate, and thanks too for the kind words.

  • March 6, 2011 - 3:58 am

    Rishi - This is awesome. I’ve tried hunting down tutorials on this on the net, but they’ve always somehow left me confused. This is clean, precise, and easy to follow!

Photo Shoot: Male Model Portfolio (Studio)

A short while back I posted up a series of images from the ‘on location’ part of this male model portfolio shoot so today I thought I’d finish off with a selection of images to show some of what we did in the studio…

Not wanting to overdo things, I stuck to just two lighting set ups in the studio; a white seamless with reflective floor and a three light set up giving some right light to Richard as in the image above.

Most of the time when I photograph using a white seamless set up I’ll end up converting the images to black & white during the editing stage…

I’m a big fan of ‘black & white’ for the timeless feel it gives to images and that there seems to be an unlimited way of doing conversions; those built into Photoshop/Lightroom, Plug Ins like Nik Silver Efex Pro and so on…

I like my black & white images to be quite high contrast so I’ll always do a ‘Double Raw Conversion’ technique to first of all create the high contrast image and then finish off by converting to ‘black & white’ in Nik Silver Efex Pro using the default settings.

Below you can see a ‘set up’ shot showing one of the lighting set ups. This ‘rim light’ set up is one that I turn to regularly when putting composite images together as I did recently with the ‘Fighter‘ and the image above of model Richard where amongst other things, the ‘wall’ background has been added in during the editing stage using Photoshop.

The two images below show the ‘Before‘ image which is straight out of the camera and the ‘After‘ image which is the final edit after having worked through a few techniques in Photoshop. To give you an idea of what was done, here’s a breakdown of the steps involved…

  • Double Raw Conversion
  • Blemish removal
  • Brighten & sharpen the eyes
  • Add contrast to skin
  • Dodging & Burning on face
  • Sharpening technique to bring out details in clothing
  • Adjust colouring (using a Colour Balance adjustment layer)
  • Darken down edges with a vignette

So there you have it…a selection of images from both ‘on location’ and now in the studio. If you have any questions or comments then as always please feel free to make use of the comments section below.

Also if you’re not familiar with the ‘Double Raw Conversion’ technique in Photoshop just shout it out in the comments section below and I’ll look to posting a ‘walk through’ this week, but in the meantime,
Enjoy:)

    Pedro Vasconcellos - Please make a post about the Double Raw Technique…

    and how did you make the suit’s strips pop up that much???

  • February 28, 2011 - 6:29 am

    Dave T - Hi Glyn,

    Great images. I like the way Richard has that pensive look about him and the end result post processing is fabulous.

    I’m with Pedro and have the same request. I’m also interested to know if you use any colour measurement device at the shooting stage.

    Thanks again for sharing your knowledge and techniques with us.

    Dave

  • February 28, 2011 - 7:22 am

    David Kelly - Hi Glyn,

    You’re right about those white seamless shoots – just something that seems (pardon the pun) to work really well in mono.

    Interested to understand the double raw conversion technique too. I think I have an inkling as to what it is but let’s be certain :-)

    Regards,

    David

  • February 28, 2011 - 9:23 am

    Brandon Jacoby - Great shots Glyn!
    Am I correct in saying you used Calvin Hollywood’s F.A.D. (Freaky amazing detail);)?

    – Brandon

  • February 28, 2011 - 3:10 pm

    Nat - Hi Glynn
    Thanks for helping us all improve our photography skills. I too would like to see what you mean by the double raw conversion technique and also what you mean by adding contrast to the skin – is that a special technique also??? Thanks again,
    Nat

  • February 28, 2011 - 3:33 pm

    Mark Robinson - Hi Glyn
    I would really appreciate a walk-through re the “Double Raw Conversion” technique. Terrific blogs by the way – I have learnt an IMMENSE amount.
    All the best, Mark

  • February 28, 2011 - 4:22 pm

    Aziz - Hi Glyn

    I’d also love to know how you got the pinstripes to pop like that, and I’d like to know what your referring to with the double raw technique.

    thanks
    Aziz

  • February 28, 2011 - 9:18 pm

    Noel Hannan - Glyn,
    What a great post, loads of info… Spill on the double raw technique…
    Great to see the set up in the studio, I was particularly pleased when I worked it out before seeing the set up shot!
    Thanks for sharing

    Tim Skipper - He smiled! I got to tell you I was shooting a model last week and she was not smiling and I told her, “You got to smile or Glyn is going to bust my chops after my comment.” Of course she has no idea who you are, but I got my smile.

    Images look great as usual.

  • March 1, 2011 - 10:15 pm

    Glyn - @Tim…Superb!!! Certainly made me chuckle there mate; I’ll be using you as a threat when I next need a client to smile :)

  • March 1, 2011 - 10:16 pm

    Glyn - Thanks everyone for the kind words and for asking about the Double Raw Conversion.
    I’ve now written a ‘walk through’ of the steps involved and will have it online tomorrow (Wednesday).

    Thanks again for looking in and taking the time to comment; I really do appreciate it.

Photo Shoot and Technique: Spillers Farm B&B, Devon

Ok so before I let you in on the lighting and editing side of things I want to first of all introduce you to the actual folks I was photographing…Keith & Bridget Trayling who own and run the fabulous Spillers Farm in Devon, UK …

Lifting the text straight from their website here’s a brief background giving you the who, what, where and when:

The owners of Spillers Farm – Bridget and Keith Trayling – moved to Devon from London in 2005 seeking a simpler way of life and wanting to grow their own food and raise livestock.  Spillers had not been a working farm since the 1960’s but Keith and Bridget have literally brought new life to the farm when their sow Cassie had her first litter of six piglets in April 2008 – the first livestock to be born on the farm in forty years. They have also created a vegetable garden with four large plots which produces vegetables all year round; planted a small orchard with apple, pear and plum trees and planted a soft fruits plot which provides enough strawberries, raspberries, gooseberries and loganberries to make almost a hundred pounds of homemade jam per year!

Bridget and Keith raise their animals using the principles of good animal husbandry. The pigs have a custom-built pigsty with constant access to outside space and they live as natural a life as possible.

The same principles are applied to all the other animals reared on the farm – lambs and poultry. Wanting to offer a good life to as many animals as possible, Bridget and Keith rescued two dozen battery hens in the summer of 2008. The project was so successful and fulfilling that two dozen more were rescued in the spring of 2009. All fully feathered and thriving, the birds are now completely free range.

Strange but I never imagined when I first started in photography that one day I’d be taking the portrait of a fully grown Gloucester Old Spot Pig by the name of Rodney. But, I guess if there’s one lesson I quickly learned in photography it was to always “expect the unexpected”.

I’ll never forget Keith calling out “Rodney, Rodney come on mate, up you come” in an increasingly desperate attempt to wake him from a deep sleep; geez if his own snoring wasn’t waking him up then Keith didn’t stand a chance…or so I thought. Before we knew it up he popped, front trotters on a wall and peeked over and if I didn’t know better I’d be convinced he was was ‘working the camera’ as he turned his head from side to side and struck a pose each time the flash went off:)

Lighting Set Up:
In all honesty it couldn’t have been simpler; virtually all of the shots where taken using one Nikon SB800 Speedlight and a 46″ Shoot Thru Umbrella, triggered using the Pocket Wizard Mini TT1 and Flex TT5.

This time rather than shooting in Aperture Priority as I did in the earlier Male Model Shoot [Link] I decided to go back to using Manual and for the record, this is where I’m going to be staying. Now don’t misunderstand my reason for this because Aperture Priority works really well, but it’s just that I’m more used to shooting in Manual and don’t have to really think about what I’m doing on the technical side which leaves me to engage with whoever I’m working with. The new Pocket Wizard units work faultlessly in Manual and still allow me to sync at much higher shutter speeds which at the end of the day is all I was really intending to ask of them anyway.

Again, full control of the flash power and the mode it was in was done using the Nikon SU800 attached to the Mini TT1 ontop of the camera. This makes for such a quick way to work being able to make all the changes from shooting position albeit this set up is a little on the bulky side. Sure there’s the soon to be released AC3 Controller for Nikon which is alot more compact but do I really need it yet when this system works perfectly as it is? … I’ll keep you posted:)

Post Production
Most of the images from this shoot took just a few minutes of editing; starting off in Lightroom and then over to Photoshop to bring out some details, add contrast to the subject’s skin and adjust the colouring.

The image below is the one that took a little more time to complete. Reason for this being that I wanted to get a shot of Keith, Brigett and Meryck the dog from low down to include some of the sky but it was the middle of the day so the sky was fairly bright but also a little on the ‘flat’ side.

The side by side images above show you the ‘Before’ (out of camera) image and the ‘After’ (edited) image and to give you an idea of what editing was done in Photoshop here’s a breakdown…

So what was done?

  • Remove Shoot Thru Umbrella and branches from left side of frame
  • Remove reflection off the shoot thru umbrella and speedlight from Keith’s glasses
  • Use a sharpening technique to bring out a little more detail
  • Add contrast to skin
  • Replace sky
  • Adjust colouring (Add warmth & Desaturate)

•    •    •

So there you have it…a quick run through of a ‘Promotional’ shoot for Spillers Farm, Devon; a wonderful place to stay either in Bed & Breakfast or Holiday Cottage set amongst the Devon Countryside. Owned and run by people who truly love what they do which is clearly evident by the warm welcome and ‘home from home’ feel of the place; I can’t recommend Spillers Farm enough!

Oh and one last thing if you find yourself photographing farm animals and need a little bit of help getting them to “Work the camera Baby!” I’m sure Keith will be happy to pass on any hints and tips:)

As always if you have any questions or comments about anything in this post then please feel free to make use of the comments section below; it’s always great to ‘hear’ your thoughts.

Enjoy

    Larry Eiss - Thanks for an excellent post. I had wondered about the technique used in “post” to get that look. Your explanation was perfect. These are great shots that tell a strong story of two very interesting people and their farmyard animals. Well done!

    Tim Pursall - Hi Glyn!

    As you know we stayed at Spillers Farm last month. Totally endorse your comments. A lovely place to stay!

    Nice blog post. Some website stuff for them? Keith & Bridget – you are natural posers! Have a great summer.

    Cheers

  • February 24, 2011 - 6:22 pm

    Alex - Thumbs up, Glyn.
    I really like the “more dramatic” sky because in my opinion it adds depth to the image. Also the warmer tones give the picture this “welcome” feeling.
    Nice unobtrusive lighting btw.
    Keep on sharing your experience with the Pocket wizards.
    Alex

  • February 24, 2011 - 6:25 pm

    Keith Hammond - loving that pig shot, will they eat him one day, or did you just have a few slices the other week in that butty :-)
    Is this for promo material ?
    Good post as usual mate with simple explanation. You will be trawling every trade stand at Focus for the AC3 won’t you :-)

  • February 24, 2011 - 6:28 pm

    Glyn - @Larry…Very kind of you to say that; thanks :)

  • February 24, 2011 - 6:28 pm

    Glyn - @Hristo…Ah yes ‘Rodney’ … he’s quite a character :)

  • February 24, 2011 - 6:29 pm

    Glyn - @Tim…Absolutely mate. Funnily enough we spoke about you when we were down last; I mentioned you’d said about the sausages :)

  • February 24, 2011 - 6:30 pm

    Glyn - @Alex…Cheers for that and yeah I’ll keep you posted re the PW’s. It’s more than likely an AC3 will end up in my bag when I’m at Focus on Imaging next week; paid for though of course :)

  • February 24, 2011 - 6:31 pm

    Glyn - @Keith…Thanks mate. Re ‘Rodney’ … not at all. He’s got a great life ‘looking after’ a few girls if you know what I mean :)

    Re the AC3…you could be right and yeah this is all ‘promo’ material for Keith & Bridget.

  • February 24, 2011 - 7:05 pm

    David Kelly - Glyn,

    Informative post as always mate and not just for the photography :-). I’ve been wanting to go to Spillers for sometime now after hearing all the good stuff about it from you previously. The wife & I are big River Cottage fans so we’d use it as a base for spending some time down there. Now just need to get some leave from work sorted out…

    Regards,

    David

  • February 24, 2011 - 7:37 pm

    Glyn - @David…Would make a great short break for you guys, and if you’re as much fans of River Cottage as I think you are you’ll absolutely love Spillers!

    Keith and Bridget have the same high ethics when it comes to animal husbandry as River Cottage and HFW.

    Keith and Bridget have quickly become great friends and we look forward to seeing them and the gang so much each time.

    The hosts, the location, the animals, the rooms, and the breakfast…did I mention the breakfast, the home made jams, home cured bacon, home made sausages….the lot. Each time I eat it so quick in the hope that Keith won’t notice and will think I’ve not had it yet :)

  • February 24, 2011 - 7:41 pm

    Tim Skipper - I’ve taken some pictures of some “pigs” but I think you have me beat.

  • February 25, 2011 - 12:41 am

    Russell Pritchard - @Tim Skipper, you might have photographed some pigs in your time…
    I’ve went out with them !

    How on earth did you get a gig shooting a farm in Devon!?

    I’ll have to check it out. Love staying in those kind of places.

    The landscape shot you have with the couple and dog pitched slightly to the left is almost surreal. The background doesn’t look real, I think its the way they pop off it. (Not meant as criticism by the way. I think it’s a testament to how the lighting has worked).

  • February 25, 2011 - 11:35 pm

    kelley - Wonderful. Love the feel of each image. Well Done!

  • February 26, 2011 - 10:59 pm

    Dean Robertson - Great post and what a small world. I thought the background looked familiar in one of the images. When I looked at the map I realised why. My wife was brought up in Musbury and we were married in Musbury church. Have driven past Spillers hundreds of times.

    Keep up the good work.

Monthly Guest: Matt Kloskowski Coming Soon!!!

I’m really excited to tell you that the next Monthly Guest is none other than Photoshop Guy, Author, Trainer and Professional Photographer Matt Kloskowski!

Literally from day 1 of using Photoshop I joined the N.A.P.P. (National Association of Photoshop Professionals) of which Matt in company with Scott Kelby and Dave Cross is one of the original Photoshop Guys.

I can’t even begin to think how much I’ve learned and continue to learn from Matt through his tutorials, books, DVD’s and sitting in some of his classes at the mind blowing Photoshop World. However, what I do know is that he’s been instrumental in helping me to develop my skill level and as a consequence, my business.

Someone I’m proud to be able to call a friend Matt’s generosity never ceases to amaze me which is why I’m incredibly grateful that he’s giving up some of his time to be a Guest here on the blog.

Now, keeping in with the tradition of previous Guest’s, Matt and I are going to be chatting through all manner of things but this time we’re going to do things just a little bit different…

If you have a question that you’d like me to ask Matt on your behalf then all you need to do is post it on twitter and attach the following tag: #AskMatt and at the end of our chat I’ll finish off by randomly choosing a few of your questions and will include them in Matt’s Guest Post when it’s posted online.

Matt and I will be chatting today at 7pm GMT (2pm EST) so you have from now until then and the time we finish to fire over any questions. Oh and if you’re not on Twitter no problem…just post your questions in the comments section below.

Enjoy:)

    DaveT - Hi Glyn,

    Wow… this is a real coup. I’m looking forward to seeing the ensuing post.

    Question for Matt – apart from being a guru in Photoshop and Lightroom, is Matt also a professional photographer? He certainly has some great images on his tutorials.

    Thanks
