I’ve wanted to try my hand at the “grunge” look ever since I saw some of Dave Hill’s incredible work and read a review on Scott Kelby’s blog on the Lucis Art Photoshop plugin that can create a similar look. Then I found a grunge tutorial on Jeff Revell’s blog describing a simple technique in Photoshop to achieve similar results and was off to the races!
So I looked through Lightroom and found a couple of images I’d posted before and exported them into Photoshop Elements to see how Jeff’s technique worked in real life. I’m pleased with the contrasty look to these landscape images but I think this technique would work better for grungy urban settings.
Living near a major US city, I’m sure you can guess where I’ll be shooting this weekend!
