Re: How to: "Christian Schmidt" Look

Hi longside1 I had set convert to profile to Adobe RGB (1998) using one of the settings suggested to get this Christian Schmidt look in the thread but it is now holding that setting and I don't recall what the default was and I don't work in RAW as of yet need to save for a better camera I'm a fairly new photo enthusiast.

Thanks for the tip on converting back over to srgb colour space I haven't tried to upload the image yet but I will do this with both the 1998 profile and srgb to compare,
So much to know about in photography and photoshop.

No probs. If you are a beginner you will be fine working in Adobe RGB regardless of what you are doing or alternatively sRGB. If you don't use sRGB then remember to change to this profile before uploading to the web

Re: How to: "Christian Schmidt" Look

Hello guys! This is my first post here!
I was messing around trying to emulate the "Christian Schmidt style" and I came to an interesting result I'd like to discuss with you.
If you cmd+click on the RGB channel and fill with white the selection (on a blank layer) the effect is quite interesting.
The problem is that while I like the overall tones of the image, I lose a lot of details on the highlights (of course because they are "filled" with white).
So my question is:
How can you bring up the details while keeping the tones obtained with the "white layer"?

Thanks!

Re: How to: "Christian Schmidt" Look

Lost track of this thread for a while. Here's the hallway image from the previous page. Took about two minutes. Am I missing something?

Don't have the AIM profile on my machine at work. I stacked three layers of pure white in softlight mode onto the original. Duped the original and converted to CMYK. Used the black plate to mask the bleached set and reveal the original beneath. Used it again as a selection and filled with black on top in soft light mode at 25%. Put the original in color mode on top at 30% to replace a little tone, but I kind of liked the desaturated look too.

Re: How to: "Christian Schmidt" Look

I think Psd will be better than description
Download Psd (8,5mb).
This to understand how you make white looks without color profile manipulations. All opacity can be changed by taste. Hope this be helpful for someone

Thanks a lot. Frankly speaking I find this way very close to the subject. It means to me that Herr Schmidt works with his hands rather than using a magic button in PS.
