PROJECT #14: SABATTIER

DIRECTIONS FOR DEVELOPING & POSTING YOUR PHOTOGRAPHS:

For each photo...
1. Take photo to BLACK & WHITE.
2. Adjust the BRIGHTNESS + CONTRAST to enhance (deepen and brighten) the values in the photograph.
3. "SAVE AS" the image, and add "BW" to the end of the file name so you do not save over the original. 
4.  Post all images.

NOW...
1. Choose five of your photos that have the HIGHEST CONTRAST.
2. For each photo, OPEN the photo.
3. Create a DUPLICATE LAYER of the background image (Layers palette).
4. Change BLENDING MODE to "EXCLUSION"
5. Open CURVES and adjust the histogram line to a "W" or an "M" to produce a SOLARIZED/SABATTIER image with MACKIE LINES.

You need to post...
6+ photos processed into Sabattier.
Post the original next to the processed image.
(That is 10+ photos total that are posted)
