First, happy new year everyone. Ok, that was for the nice-really cheesy part.
Ok, this is a new year... and i've got new goals.
Into photog i wanna do something different.
Even if for the shooting i've got few ideas in mind, few people who wanna participate, asked to get some locations etc blablabla... I still got some questions about postprocessing.
Ok, i don't know a lot of things. Well, ok, i know few stuffs, but i'm young and i've got tons and tons of questions.
The only documentation i've got about Postprocessing is mostly from this forum and from the Gry Garness books (Great ones, by the way, so far they are the most coolest i ever read)
So here's the fact, i know how it's lighted or something, that's not the point here. It's about the tones.
See the examples.
On the first one, how to bleach like that?
Is that mostly painting with white on softlight or something?
I do not ask for the whole process, of course, i just ask for a lead.
On the pic where's there's a girl in a hospital room,
i guess they started with a really desaturated pic, and then painting one or few similar tones for the skin and then for the background? Or am i wrong?
Same thing for the last one.
I tried different things sometimes, maybe you can tell me if its cool, or, really wrong.
Sometimes i tweak the tones into the curves, but really little by little. not massive big gaps. and then locally.
Sometimes i select a tone into the color range, select a fuzz, then fill the selected first tone into all the similar ones (from the fuzz/color range selection) ... Or i fill with a tone close, but another one, some tone that i wanted first.
Or filling some xxx tone into a color layer at low opacity and then painting?
I really don't know, i'm just wondering to get some clues about this.
I really speak about only the tones part. Not all the other postprocessing following the really-cool lightened pictures. Just the tones.
Am i wrong thinking we should start with desaturated pictures? Like, half way (or more, or less, to taste!) between the original caption and the 'black and white' ?
Could you give me a clue, a tip or something for filling tones propertly?
making selections or something?
cuz most of the time i use color range, i really dunno if that's correct.
Well, that's most of it.
Could be really nice from you to share to everyone.
And, in the next few days i'm gonna share with the community the differents pictures i'm gonna do, i'm gonna try to do, to be exact
From the christian schmidt thread (it's on the front page of this part of the forums):
Make adjustment layer type > Channel Mixer > Select "Monochromatic > Set Red = 0%, Green = 0%, Blue = 100% - OK
Set that layer's mode to Luminosity.
Make adjustment layer type > Channel Mixer > Select "Monochromatic > Set Red = 0%, Green = 100%, Blue = 0% - OK
Set that layer's mode to Screen at 80% opacity.
Make adjustment layer type > Channel Mixer > Select "Monochromatic > Set Red = 100%, Green = 0%, Blue = 0% - OK
That's one way of getting it, the other one involves the "AIM" profiles, but more info can be found here:
the third photo you posted is not quite similar to the other 2. That one is more desaturated and then played with the overal color tone to go yellowy/greeny. I'd guess just desaturate a bit and play with selective color adjustments.
Yep the first way looks cool, i've already seen this in the schmidt thread.
Unfortunately on some portions of the image it's totally fked up.
(some part goes black etc)
for the aim profile, it degrades a lot the image quality, even if i work with a proper raw (surexposate etc)
Ok i got it.
Just find out that the thing i was thinking was totally right.
Now that i'm sure it's done it that way, i can do it propertly.
got it (:
i bump this thread. any opinions on how to make something great like the pixxel series done by jeany veslemoigne(?) ?
