Photoshop Quick Tip: Create a Dragan Style Portrait Effect in 5 Steps
If you’re a photo buff of any level, you’ve most likely heard of or seen the amazing work of Andrzej Dragan. His portraits have a very high contrast and color style all their own. The effect is stunning and eye catching. It reveals a lot about the subject that the naked eye doesn’t get to see. A similar effect can be created in Photoshop with just a few simple steps. Here’s a look at what we’ll be doing with this portrait. Step 1 First up, lets add a Levels adjustment layer, and adjust the levels to something close to what I have below. Step 2 Now lets add a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer and take the saturation down. Step 3 Now lets add a Curves adjustment layer to further adjust the contrast and highlights. Step 4 Now we’re going to increase the sharpness considerably using the High Pass Filter. Now set this layer’s blending mode to Overlay. Step 5 For this final step we’re going to bring out some of the details in his face using the dodge and burn tools. Below is the final image.

First of all, the color tones in a vintage photo often lean towards either a blue or a red hue, or a cross-processed look. This photo is the result of adjusting the color curves, adding two vignettes, and a color fill, which we will walk through step-by-step. First, open your photo in Photoshop and make sure your foreground color is set to white in your side tool bar. You will see the above dialogue box. Now, switch your foreground color to black, and repeat the same steps as above by creating a new fill layer, but this time, check the box that says Reverse, and leave the Scale at 100 and adjust the Angle to 150 degrees. As you can see here, there should be three layers – your Background image, then your two gradient layers. Now, let’s adjust the color curves.
