Re: How to: "Christian Schmidt" Look

OK CHECK THIS OUT.

ive been trying out a lot of things and all.
what can i say is i don't look out the Schmidt portfolio.

im lookin on that:
http://lekoil.carbonmade.com/


(CHECK IT OUT , really, its ACE)

basically:
start with a "right exposed histogram"
kill a lil bit the contrast in LR/CR or something...
then it's ALL about MASKING. with Channels/Calculations.

This is what i know so far.


about the schmidt, don't be fooled:
it's shooted with wicked middle format cameras who got a pretty dope dynamic.
... COMPOSITES, BRACKETS... and then... ALL ABOUT MASKING.

i dunno that much more things...
but i'll say it's all about CALCULATIONS...
"THE" thing to make step things up...

Re: How to: "Christian Schmidt" Look

seriously its all about making killer masks.
its all about building dope masks.

play with them as LAYERS, crank them/contrast them/wacom them ...
its serioulsy all about masks.

i gave a try with one mate who came from switzerland all week-end, we really wanna push our postproduction further and we figured it out its all about that...

Gee, do you have any examples? Dont leave us high and dry.

I have tried a new type of edit to my usual 'Urbex' shots using the AIM conversion:

I really like where this thread is going, lets keep it up

AIM profile Where to obtain?

I was wondering if anyone had a link to the AIM profile. The original link posted on the AIM profile post is broken as the website is changing servers it seems.

many thanks

Tom

Re: How to: "Christian Schmidt" Look

James, looks great! Can you give more detailed description of the workflow you have used? And maybe some pictures?

Offtopic:

After all, it think this thread (also) is nowdays mainly for 'my new photo, check it out' -links

It would be fantastic if everyone who has really achieved something on photoshop/lightroom etc. would share the techniques or at least give some proper instructions if they don't want to tell everything...
