Question on lighting effect

http://www.amydresser.com/pages/hurleygirl.html#


The original shows very little hue in the rim light (as it should). The after pic has a very strong green tinge in the rim lighting. How does she achieve the colorized lighting in post?

check out my PS Studio Lighting tutorial. I'll have to get back to you on the colorized lighting.

Thanks Murray. Any other tips on the other ways to get there? I like your method (got some decent results) but am always curious of the other ways to "skin a cat" =)

Re: Question on lighting effect

have you trie using the brush and use the behind function instead of normal? I have tried that on stuff before and sometimes you can carefully go around the edges of the hair and then make a curve layer and mask out the rest...just a wild suggestion here...maybe it works, maybe not cheers!

Re: Question on lighting effect

I did this using Selective Color and Hue/sat adjustment layers. I adjusted Cyans on both. After a levels adjustment, I used a brushed on a bit of light cyan in color burn mode to increase the effect in certain areas.

This shot almost looks like an HDR photography with a lot of post retouching.

Heh, this is not HDR. Pam, did you paint with the light cyan right on the layer or was this part of one of the adjustment layers?

Re: Question on lighting effect

Caesium, I painted on an empty layer set to Color burn. Here are the exact settings and layers I used...

From bottom layer to top layer:

1 Selective color adjustment layer, Cyans:
Cyan +39
Magneta -24
Yellow 0
Blacks -2

2 Hue/sat adjusment layer #1, Cyans:
Hue -8
Saturation +30
Lightness 0

3 Hue/sat adjustment layer #2, Cyans:
Hue 0
Saturation +40
Lightness -18

4 Empty layer set to "Color burn" mode. Brush over hair highlights using this color:
R - 140
G - 233
B - 234

5 Levels adjustment to increase contrast.
