Grunge Ball

Grunge Look

During a photo shoot of a local high school senior, I noticed how beat up his football looked.  So I isolated the ball in his firm grip, converted it to B&W and started playing with different grunge-looking effects.  This is pretty mild compared to some grunge effects I’ve seen, but I like the way it turned out.  I like the detailed structure of the “pig skin” showing its chipped and battered markings, the over-sharpened hair on his arms, and the hint of a farmer’s tan peeking out from under his sleeve.

This wasn’t meant to be an ad for a sporting goods company, but it might have some potential.
