Re: Help with light on hair!!!

I made a mask using a copy of the red channel to isolate hair from background.

Re: Help with light on hair!!!

Hi Chris!

Thanks for your kind comment! ...
Please, don't stay 'in the shadow' .... Yours is a very good advice .... for how much I love working with Photoshop ... I have to admit that it keeps from closer personal contacts ...

If you don't want to mess with a mask...and the background color is not critical... then just remove the blue with the adjustment layer by painting on the mask.

No complicated red channel needed.

That's what I did too, Butch--I'm usually on my own page entirely ---wouldn't work with a purple background though ;+} they're all different aren't they.

Re: Help with light on hair!!!

Thanks Flora,
Don't worry, I am not going anywhere. I was never good at standing in corners even when the teachers made me. I've come to far through silver gelatin to instructor of la photoshop to leave but you know me. I can't pass a chance at a good dose of my rapier wit. It will be lost to most but I alread know a few get it. AND I AM FUNNY DAMIT.

Besides all the business advice drama...

Mike, I think what you're seeing in the original is actually the phenomenon of purple fringe, a particular type of chromatic aberration with digital cameras that happens with very contrasted details. Do you mind sharing your camera setup?

This tutorial suggests a saturation/hue adjustment to the magentas.

And this tutorial gives a few different techniques to correct as well as to avoid in the first place.

Don't beat yourself up (or let others beat you) when it might simply have been your camera. Not you.

Next time I will try to put a paragraph at the beginning explaining that I have no knowledge of the question askers experience and may say something like, I don't mean to talk down to you. That's what I should have done. It's all I can do to wind the film in the right direction in my Brownie and figure out the light meter with this little needle. I should learn to spectate and learn from the more experienced people. Sorry.
Flora, excellent job on removing the blue hue.
I'll be here in the shadows learning from the more experienced folks if anyone needs me

I am not in the media/photography industry, but I have dealt with corporate clients of all types and sizes for many years. I have met reasonable people who understand that mistakes happen, but more often than not, you are dealing with an IT manager, VP, or just some unlucky guy picked by the boss to head up the project. In these cases, an admission of a mistake usually does not go down well. More often than not it just gets you a black mark or struck off the approved vendor list because the procurement officer does not want the hassle of dealing with a screwup. Either that, or they use your mistake as a bargaining point in the next negotiation, hitting you over the head with your "proven" incompetence. As you say, the business world is getting increasingly competitive and a mea culpa usually gets you a demand for some free services to make up for your mistake and not an understanding pat on the head, so this kind of thing can be a touchy subject.

Re: Help with light on hair!!!

Just for shits and giggles, I decided to try a hue saturation adjustment. I didn't even mask, just selecting the magentas, and just notched down saturation and upped lightness. Easy peasy.

Hi Madclark...I did the same as you at first but lost some blue in the suite.

Re: Help with light on hair!!!

Here is one with no masks. There are as always more ways than one. AN dI am sure that someone will come up with another way to do no masks.

The Green color I used is a sample of the Blue in the hair and inverted. It reads R134 G144 B29 set to Hue. Make sure you take a good look at the screenshots I supplied for the setting on everything.
