Re: How to: "Christian Schmidt" Look

Just gave this look another shot, using the following process:

For the sky--

Channel Mixer layer, set to Monochrome, (R-100%, G-0%, B-0%) set to Multiply blending mode

Mask out everything but the sky

Take the same mask and make a curves layer, pulling the green channel up a hair and the blue channel down a hair.


For the rest--

Create a blank layer, fill it with white, and drag the opacity down to around 35%.

Double click the layer to bring up layer styles, then option-drag the right half of the bottommost black slider to the right to about 90.

Desaturate anything distracting, and tint it with a light blue/green if
necessary.

Brighten the image any way you choose, but keep the highlights in check

(it's the AIM RGB we're looking for)

- Open a picture
- Edit - Convert to profile -> Adobe RGB (1998)
- Edit - Assign profile - AIM RGB
and again

- Duplicate Background layer
- Set copy to Multiply
- Still on copy -> Blending Options - Alt-click "Underlying Layer" and drag the white(on the right) slider to about 112.
- Add a Curves layer, and drag the black slider to about "Input 25".
I did something similar to above and came up with this:

A typical view of the Eiffel Tower but the processing adds something more I think :-)

Re: How to: "Christian Schmidt" Look

lil bit surexposated image - most important part -

vibrance -----
saturation ++++
fill light ++++
(basically i do not want too much "blacks" on the soon to be photoshopped pic)
(not too much doesnt mean any)

then... hue/sat & curves & color balance a lot...

im really not sure i can make it again to be fair.

i can show u originale & finale here:

http://bp-650.net/gk/tones.jpg (finale)


and yes i fucked up with the cloning on the right :/

Great result Gee, not sure if it´s like Schmidt, could use more sharpening for that but kind of like your shot better!
