Grunge photos are very hot. You see them in attention-grabbing ads and top magazines, but they are not for everyone. Take my photo of model Vanessa Jeanne from the American Photo Model Shoot. (By the way, she is a true professional, a pleasure to work with and incredibly sweet too 😉 ) I showed her both versions of the photo and she liked the “non-grunged” version better. This made me question whether I was favoring “edgy” over the “true aesthetic”. Let me know what you think, either here or on Facebook.
By the way, if you are interested in some easy Grunging, take a look at my article, Easy Gritty Grunge Effect with Topaz Adjust 4. I even have a downloadable Preset in the article for the effect called “Grunge Me by Photoframd”.
