Your should be happy with your results.
I got in late but did not see exactly how Calvin change the background color so easily but remember him talking about it before.
Maybe showing the lighting set up could help some fellow members as you have done a good job.
Be proud of you and your son...

P.S. how do you do you changing of the background color with select color?
Always interested in new ways of skinning the cat myself..

Hi Snook,

yes sure, I've attached you a bunch of pictures which explains the light setup (which is anyway the keyto get the look) and a selective color layer. hope that helps you.

sry the lightsetup notes are all ingerman, but I am sure it shows what you need to know.
In order to change the background color with that method you should try to get a neutral gray background. I shoot my son infront of a gray carpet as you can see on the middle picture.

Well. I like Jill, Hill and Leibovitz. But what if you combine their style. Will you then get something like those two photos i add here in links?

No broblem: Beautydish and hair light. Drumscan and curves adjustment for the right contrast. A few blemished retouched on the negative before scan.

Hi,

the psd files are no longer available on the server. Your work replication looks great, I'd like to see the layers.

ValugaT, I guess you have to mask the person first right?
I have tried your method but the person changes color also...?
With the selective color you have the baby masked off first right?
Thanks
Felix

Yes you can mask out the person out, but in that case the color change on the skin wasn't so bad so I left it.
