Here is my attempt... I just duplicate the original layer, then remove all white form the duplicate layer, and set it to linear burn... on the original layer I add the desired color to overlay, and then just adjust the levels on the duplicate layer till I was satisfied with the result.... LEt me know waht do you think

I'm not sure what you're looking for. I check out the examples and then the attatchments on the replies. The ones you did didn't look like the photos the guy took. Your examples show models in black, white, or blue. I think there were two that had pink/red.

Hope you're still checking this thread because I would like to know what you think

BadMike - Not bad but the first one looks too grainy. Instead of a smooth transition from light to dark it's just... grainy. The third one isn't too bad but the background is distracting and takes the focus off the model. I would knock it back with a dark bluish green.

Re: Advanced color shading - how the hell did he do that?:-)

hey all --

first post --

NEway, thought i'd give it a try -- i'm pretty sure Patrick captures a good bit from the shot as is -- if interested, he talks about in a Digital Pro issue, and another issue (forget which now) -- he uses a lot of continuous lighting, film-style (meaning movie-style), mostly kino flos, which are expensive fluorescent lights... you can see the catchlight in some of the shots... naturally there is some Post work, but not as much as one would think... he uses a guy named Joe P. @ digital fusion (check their website) --

the color correction reminds me a of the stuff we do for movies... i've sat in on a few Digital CC sessions for big films like The Ring Two and The Sentinel... "sat in" as in checking stuff out as a visitor, not that I did any work on that... i'm not a Photoshop master by any means, but I figured I'd give it a try...

process: desaturated a bit (to taste) -- added a smidge of contrast... then i went to color balance and added the blues, greens, and cyans, but here's the difference, ONLY to the SHADOWS... again, all to taste... in the exterior shot, I dodged and burned a smidge as well, but not a lot, cuz i don't feel too proficient with that tool yet...

there's a Final Cut Pro plugin called Magic Bullet that replicates different types of Movie Looks... and this is close to what it does... essentially creating a "Matrix" look... for more info on this stuff, check here: http://www.redgiantsoftware.com/lookguide.html

Wow great thread. Here is what I did to one of my photos simply by doing the steps listed earlier in this thread. I created a luminace mask used curves to make mid areas dark and just leave high lights. I then copied the selection from that on top of the image and lightened. I then added a blue color overlay at 26%.

I think the image is quite nice to begin with and thats whyit works in blue also. I shot it with a white lighting beauty dish
