Description

About the 5th one out of 7 in the series. I liked the dancer who was contorting himself in all sorts of ways to house music.

My reaction when I saw this was, Wow, he must feel cramped, how can anyone move like that?

-- B/W conversion in LR3 by desaturating all the channels, then selectively darkening the blue channel to bring out the texture in his jeans.
-- I put the close crop around him to get that feeling of tightness and "cramped" quarters.
-- His face and upper body was in the shadows, so used fill light initially to bring out the details a bit. Then used the brush tool to increase brightness to the face and chest. This brought out some noise (which was minimized with noise reduction in LR). I removed as much noise as possible with the clone / heal tool in Photoshop CS5 afterwards.
-- I was not able to get an angle without the distracting background, so cropped out a lot of it, cloned out some, and then used gaussian blur to minimize the rest.
