Nice looks. Guy's pretty good on first glance. With any "How do I get this look" the answer is the same. You experiment. Helps to know your tools. Be patient and then, do your own thing and stop copying others. Sure we're all influenced, but ... . ...

Well, thanks for your really helpful advice. I am too tired now to explain - that getting to know how was this done is another tool you are talking about.

Re: Sort of retro processing to pictures from Olym

Took a look at those images... very sharp !
Obviously, he started with some very nice shots. The one's I think you're referring to seem to be enhanced by slightly raising the highlights and lowering the shadows. It doesn't look like much else was done, other than (maybe) adding some additional artificial light sources in the same direction as the original light source. Not all of them were enhanced this way.

Re: Sort of retro processing to pictures from Olym

This guy is shooting with a Hasselblad, so those images might have been captured with a 39 megapixel camera for all we know. That's a nice starting point for a good edit.

I'm not taking anything away from the skill of the photographer. But he starts with some very nice files. If you are going to try to imitate the processing and quality, then keep that in mind.

Sort of bump? Anybody?

And yeah he uses Hasselblad I googled his name and he is one of AAA photographers for sure. But it is not sharpness or wider dynamic range. It is light mainly - some of the pics look really artificially lit - like light coming exactly from behind to create rims and so on and so on. If you go through your newspaper those picture are not that good even though they are not so heavily post-processed or shot with Hasselblad.
