Re: great style by jill greenberg

the dragan, hdr and the jill greenberg style, is different.
The key of the jill is the light, she use a lot of strobes and closed apertures f stops.

whatever, the time in postproduction (Photoshop) is too long.
fred_nikon (up side) says: dodge an burn... he is very close... but, adds color correction, balance levels, contrast, etc.
the tutorials like (http://www.bechbox.dk/pwl/ http://www.atncentral.com/download.htm
http://andrzejdragan.com/) are far to be jill's style.
look here www.davehillphoto.com/ watch carefully "behind the scenes" area in the inferior part of the web, and you discover the secret.
Sorry for my english..

there is something i dont understand:

point 3:

"Step 3: Color control
Here's a great way of controlling color - it can give you a dramatic effect or a very subtle one.

First make a new layer and merge all visible layers into that (Cmd-Option-Shift-E). Name it 'color'.

Now select 'Channels' in the layer palette and go through the Red, Green and Blue channels. Copy the ones you like (sometimes I use all three) to a new layer under 'Layers' and name it accordingly. Place these B&W layers beneath the 'color' layer as shown in the image to the right, where you can see that for this image I chose the green and the blue layer.

Go to the 'color' layer and change the blending mode to Color. Cool eh?

Now it's time to experiment! Change the opacity of the B&W layers to blend them together - maybe even try changing the blending modes. Often I use the opacity slider of the 'color' layer as a saturation control to desaturate, but with this image I didn't do that."


> "Place these B&W layers beneath the 'color' layer as shown in the image to the right, where you can see that for this image I chose the green and the blue layer.

Go to the 'color' layer and change the blending mode to Color. Cool eh?"

... i dont see any effect when placing the 2 or 3 RGB channels as a layer each above the main layer. did he mean to set the RGB greayscale layer also to blend mode "color" or not?

thx
I dont get it too. Does anybody know how this can be done?

I think there is an easier way. But first get the concept. Your BW layers help you adjust the tonality of the image independent of the color. Do this for practice:

1. Start with a flat (no layers) colorful image. Dupe the BG layer and set the dupe (the top layer) to Color mode.
2. Click the BG layer and chose a BW adjustment layer or a channelmix adjustment layer and check the monochromatic checkbox. So you now have a layer stack with a BG layer, then a BW/Channel mix adj layer (which will allow you to adjust the tonality of colors) and the your color layer up top.
3. Play around with the color sliders in you BW/CM adjustment layers and notice that you can lighten or darken certain colors of the photo relative to others. This allows you to affect contrast and tonality.

That's the concept, and I think the adjustment layers I mention allow one to do more simply what he is doing by copying and duping two channels and pasting them in as layers and then adjusting the opacity of those layers.

Re: great style by jill greenberg

Even easier, Flashtones -- Just add the B/W or channelmix adjustment layer, set blend mode to luminosity. Adjust away...

Re: great style by jill greenberg

yeh and if you put the layer to luminosity first then you start to adjust the B&W you will see the instant effect...:+}
