    Aaron, could you please help me out? Can you teach us how to make a (from a normal tone skin image) face either really really really white but still keeping the highlights, or either really really black also still maintaining the highlights.

    Kind of like the trick you did with the top of this girl in the tutorial, but than with skin. I would love to achieve this look but i keep on failing at it. In my images the skin just turns grey, like a black and white adjustment layer. I would really appreciate it.

    Thanks!!!!! ( you rock ^^ )

    I’m having a similiar problem right now with a series called “life of a killer” (shot outdoor with an actor/model). It was first supposed to be a fake/documentary/naturalistic-like series, then I found out some images perfectly worked with a grunge style (dodge and burn, desaturatation, textures…), and some other in black and white and some other with a more natural documentary-like style but all together they just meant nothing. So I was led to think that, when you decide to do a series, you have to set rules first (e.g. it has to be black and white, with a creative use of textures…). Boundaries which will take away something from the single image to give it back to a more comprehensive meaning in the whole series perspective.

    Fantastic video. Regarding ‘Coloring an object black’, what about using a Hue/Saturation layer?
