How to Make a Stippled Portrait in Photoshop?

Preparing the Photo

Open a high-quality portrait photo in Photoshop. Busy backgrounds don’t work well for stippling, so if the background isn’t a plain light color, before proceeding.

Change the photo to black and white by clicking the Image menu, selecting Adjustments and clicking Black & White. Adjust the sliders if needed to make the background as white as possible without disrupting the person’s face. For example, if the background was blue, drag the Blue slider slightly to the left to make it white. Click OK.

Photoshop's Black and White window

In most cases, the default Black and White options should work fine.

Duplicate the Background Layer in the Layers panel by dragging it onto the New Layer icon. Hide the Background Layer by clicking its Eye icon. You can use the hidden layer later in case you need to do the stippling a second time.

Click the Image menu, select Adjustments and increase the Brightness and Contrast to make the details crisp.

Brightness/Contrast window

In this example, the Brightness is set to 29 and the Contrast to 37.

Select Blur from the Filter menu and click Surface Blur. Add just a bit of blur to smooth out the image.

Surface Blur window with Preview

Here, the Surface Blur Radius and Threshold filters are to 5 and 8, respectively.

Invert the photo by pressing Ctrl-I, or by clicking Adjustments under the Image menu and selecting Invert. The photo should now look like an old film negative.

Applying the Stipple

Open the Filter Gallery under the Filter menu. Click Texture and then click the Grainthumbnail. Change the Grain Type to Stippled.

Grain Filter options

Using a Contrast of 100 makes a portrait look like a Che Guevara poster.

Begin by moving the Intensity and Contrast sliders to the middle and then adjust them as needed. Zoom in and out of the Preview image to be certain you get the effect you want. Click OK.

In this example, an Intensity of 43 and a Contrast of 46 works best.

Zoom into the photo by 3000 percent so you can see the individual pixels and then open Color Range from the Select menu. Click on a light square and adjust the Fuzziness to about 100. Click OK. Press Delete to remove all of the light pixels and return the Zoom to normal.

Color Range window

The Fuzziness is set to 103 in this example.

Select Invert from the Select menu to select all of the dark pixels. Open the Imagemenu’s Brightness/Contrast option. Decrease the Brightness slider to -150 and increase the Contrast to 100. Click OK.

Brightness/Contrast window

A dark, high-contrast removes gray pixels.

Zoom in and out to examine the grain that makes the stippled effect.

The portrait is now completely stippled. The first time you do this, you may not get the result you want. You can use the History panel — available under the Window menu — to go back and start again, or delete the current layer and use the hidden Background layer to begin again.

TRANSPARENT MATERIALS ON INVISIBLE MANNEQUINS

Trickier invisible mannequin items include sheer, transparent or translucent materials, fabric with cut out details, or a mixture of all these elements! There are a number of different approaches to photographing these styles, a selection of these are shown here.

JEWELLERY PHOTOGRAPHY

We are MEGA pros when it comes to product photography but we get especially excited by the challenge of shooting jewellery. With more shine, sparkle and accompanying pressure than nearly any other photographic niche, professional jewellery photography demands near-faultless results and it’s our job to make sure all our clients get just that.

A combination of studio trickery, post-production bling and more than 30 years of experience, our jewellery images will get your little gems standing out from the crowd in the increasingly busy world of e-commerce competition.

 

 

While we love any excuse to rave about how skilled we are in our photographic knowledge, jewellery photography is one area where we also need to talk about commercial understanding. Particularly if you have product numbers in the tens or hundreds, we appreciate that you might not have the budget to allow us to spend hours photographing and retouching each piece. Yes – we do spend hours – particularly if an image is going to be used for print advertising, or in large format. But for an online product listing, which might be updated every few months, and might be one of several hundred other jewellery items on the page – balancing the cost with the perfection is just as much a skill.

So don’t be afraid of our quality! We’re not (last sentence aside) pumped up, ego-heavy photographers – we’re hard working folk who will always try to find a solution that fits our clients’ budgets.

You can read more about our techniques and our studio methodology on our blog pages. In particular, the art of focus stacking, and our take on top jewellery retouching are exciting reads, for those in the industry. Otherwise, just enjoy some shiny, shiny pictures….

 

 

How to make a dynamic business portrait?

Group portraits are always appreciated by companies. It’s the way to personalize your communication and get out sanitized visuals and formatted image banks.

Discuss with leaders or communication managers

Discover the company, its history, its activities and its objectives is the preliminary step to the shooting. This helps to understand the message that the company wants to go through the photo.

Shooting

I install my studio (lighting and background) within the company. Each person is taken individually. “Head-to-head” with the camera is not an easy exercise. I then try to create a friendly atmosphere, to build trust while discussing the work of the person, his hobbies, his passions. I like to observe how people speak, memorize gestures.

With or without accessories… Imitating movie posters…

Play with logo letters, share an event

Post-production

All the individual images are cut out, retouched and put together to form the team’s photo.

The advantages of this method of shooting

  • we avoid the cliché of the school photo
  • no one is hidden, everyone has the same importance
  • no unsightly shadow produced by the neighbor, everyone receives the same light
  • if a new collaborator joins the team, we can add it (and conversely)

Your opinion counts! Tell me if what you think of this kind of portraits. Thank you.

  • Strength: This slider, affects globally. That means it will eliminate the noise pixels in the overall image.
  • Preserve details: Pixels tend to get blurred while reducing noise. The preserve details slider will bring back the texture and other small details in the image. Different combinations of strength and preserve details slider work differently for different images. You will have to experiment to see which combination gives the best quality.
  • Reduce Colour noise: This slider will reduce any floating colour pixels due to chromatic aberration.
  • Sharpen details: The blurring of noisy pixels may result in reducing the sharpness of the image. Use the sharpen details slider to restore sharpness in the image.
  1. At the end of all the sliders, you will see a checkbox that says “Remove JPEG artifacts”. This will remove any noise that may occur while saving the image as a JPEG.

Try more night shots

Now that you know the secret, try more night shots. ISO is a very good feature in digital camera if it only wasn’t for the resulting noise. Hopefully, camera manufacturers will try to come up with ways of minimizing the noise grains at high ISO but until then, this little Photoshop technique should do the trick.
