yeah...Of course you need a proper lighting when you take the shot, but I didn't really understand if the method with the profiles is the right way...

Re: How to: "Christian Schmidt" Look

hope this question it makes sense...

is it possible to achieve this effect but in B&W images? You know strong shadow areas, even and pale skins, strong contours in eyes, a general high contrast.

method for B&W?

For me it looks like the photos are constructed from different shots, with different lightings...What do you belive?

I think these are single shots.

My question to the experts: after converting & assigning the color space, how do you retain/bring back the natural colors to areas you don't want to whiten? Curves helped a bit but not to the extent you see in Christian Schmidt's images.

Any inputs?

Thanks

No! :-)

The conversion to RGB will automatically flatten all layers even if you hide one layer. Try it

??? Mantain a copy? Paste it after you have done the conversion?

My thoughts work on a duplicate and paste it back into the original after making the aim changes on the dup.
