I used to be a big fan of a band called Maximum The Hormone and i decided to check out one of their songs, which soon led me to revisit their site. On there I roamed and visited their band page. I noticed they had an awesome picture of themselves in a black and white tent, which can be seen here. I was wondering if anyone knew how to perform this task in Photoshop? or if you knew a site which showed a tutorial for this. I currently run CC edition and I am pretty familiar with some of the basic layer adjustments. I just want to make cool photos for Facebook and stuff like that. I would be grateful.
Personally I am more of a fan of the Exposure or Shadows/Highlight options as I feel they give finer control to the levels of the darks and lights along with the gamma correction needed to get really sharp curves to mimic the OP image mentioned...
