Re: Bringin' in the Darkness

My two cents worth also!

Imagenomic noise removal
Ctrl+J (Background copy)
hue/sat, Reds, desaturate, darken (lighten slider all the way to the left), mode multiply
Ctrl+J (Copy Layer)
mode color, opacity 36%
Shft+Ctrl+ALT+N+E (new combined layer)
Ctrl+J (Copy Layer)
hue/sat, Reds, desaturate, darken, mode multiply
Filter>Noise>add noise, 7.8%
Opacity 71%

Tweak to your pleasure.. (lighter, darker, whatever)

Re: Bringin' in the Darkness

Random question-

I know you said it seemed like daylight- bright office. But by any chance was flashed used? Did you see the original pictures themselves, not just the setup? It's easy to make a bright setup look very dark with only a little bit of flash. This lighting would be a peice of cake with two or so flash heads, but days worth of work in photoshop.

Infact, even though the images are very small- I can clearly see a flash being used. The reflection on the blue ball (on the first picture) and the reflection along the wood on the floor- in the second. It's clearly flash in my opinion. (although it would be nice to see the pictures in higher resolution).
