Upload & Sell: On
I'm working on making my first "Blurb" book. Last Spring I took a large number of nighttime silohuettes using an empty lighted store window as my backdrop. I set up my camera on the edge of the sidewalk a block from where I live and photographed people as they walked by. Most didn't even notice that I was taking their photo. I should explain that I live in Greenwich Village NYC and there's usually so much going on at street level that what I was doing barely registered.
Over the course of 3-4 weeks, I took a large number of silohuettes, and have narrowed them down initially to the best 200. I've started to process the photos in CS5. Being somewhat of a novice at photoshop, I wondered whether some of you might have suggetions as to the best steps to use to process silohuettes and get the most from them.
As an example, I'm posting one silohuette, with no processing, and a second version with my processing. Any suggestions are much appreciated, and feel free to edit my photo.
The shooting part of the project ended when the store filled the window with merchandise and I lost my "canvas."
