Thread: New shots, after a week of Photoshop World

  1. #1

    Arrow New shots, after a week of Photoshop World

    Well,

    After a long (and very cool week of photoshop world) I gathered up my regular 'Muse' last saturday for an outdoor adventure shoot - To most of which I can't show her here. However these are two new images that are featuring several new techniques that I learned at Photoshop World Orlando.

    And yes, these Images have been "pre-screend and approved by the administraion before posting"

    This first shot is a process done in RAW, this is NOT an HDR conversion, nor is this a filter.



    This second shot is a new cleanup technique to balance the lighting/Selective curves, and some eye retouching techniques - This is a WIP.



    All shots were taken in natural sunlight, no studio lighting .

    CC is welcomed!

    I like both photos but especially the 2nd one. I think the graffiti on the first one takes something from the shot. Maybe if the saturation were backed off a little it might help. Just my 2 cents. I really love your work and would jump at a chance to ask a few questions of you about shooting live subjects. Fred

    Both great shots Chris. Perhaps you could post some more details on what you did in PS for those of us that use it.

    No problem Mike,

    Image is a simple RAW conversion with a twist,

    With all thesee features set to 100%

    Recovery
    Fill Lights
    Blacks
    Clarity
    Vibrance

    All are set to 100%

    The magic comes from Saturation which is set to -45 for this image

    I bring this into photoshop, as its own document

    I then go back to RAW, and open the image normaly, and bring the models skin tones in
    I open this as a 2nd image.

    I then drag the image onto the Over blown image, and layer it underneath the originl over blown shot.

    I then erase the model (skin and bra) only incuding her hair. Using the erease tool

    this sets the model against an over saturated look.
    Driving the colors, and not over drawing the model.

    Pleasing image with the oversaturated setting. Colors drive the human eye to look closer.

    B&W need contrast differentials in order to be viewed, as interesting.


    Theory: Your camera captures B&W images, Windows/mac gives it colors; A camera could care less about the values of color, but a computer knows the values as 1 and 0. This it over drives the sences, and your drawn into the visuals.

    Now, as a NEF memeber.. What leads you into the image?


    The model?
    The setting?
    Or the color?


    The train = Green
    The Sky = Blues
    The hair of this model?

    R + G + B = RGB.. Humans can connect with these color frames

    Thus its cool! And your drawn to it.

    AWESOME work, Chris!! I was going to say the balance of colors is what draws me to the photo (before I even read further) - LOL!! I think the first thing that I SEE in the photo is the blue jeans, which blends with the graffitti and the sky.

    And the comment about the eyes? I picked up on that, too. LOL! I was thinking, "Hmmm.... how did she get such crystal clear catchlights??"

    Superb!
