bright / white skin like Kristian Schuller

Hey guys,

for a while I´m trying to figure out how to get such a bright, almost white skin like Kristian Schuller in most of his pictures, without letting it look too unnatural or just sick.

I tried several things from pulling out the black of the reds in color correction, to duplicating a b/w layer and playing with the layer styles arround. But it always looks kind of weird and very uneven.

Maybe you have another way to go there, that I do not know. Would appreciate every kind of help!

here is a link to Kristian Schullers Website

http://www.kristianschuller.com/flash_start.php

examples under : fashion -> vogue hellas
advertising -> eva padberg
advertising -> bng paris


Thank you,
Linkin

Re: bright / white skin like Kristian Schuller

for bright almost white skin in her color photograph right? not the BW.
you can try hue/sat:
in the Output Chanel MASTER, decrease the saturation -30 to -60 (to your taste).
in the Output Chanel RED, increase the brightness +20 to +50

it will be more easier to find the method if you gave us a sample image to work with, because each picture will need different way to touch.

I'm only a novice at this game but if you want to add glow . Ctrl click on thr Blue Channel to select the Hilights . On a new layer fill selection with white , blur and adjust opacity . Bill

Re: bright / white skin like Kristian Schuller

I think the editing is done by her sister Peggy Schuller. Click studio (top right) and Peggy style and Kristian photography.

But eather way both photography and editing here is top notch. Everything seems to be spot on. I see a lot of wide angle and gel color stobes, along with vibrent shiny things.

You could also make the image B&W with a layer and then reduce the opacity or use a mask; along with the desaturation. Just an idea, i'll do some testing...

Re: bright / white skin like Kristian Schuller

hey thanks for the answers so far. peggy schuller is his wife and working as a stylist. i guess he has a personal retoucher working in his studio.

@gobsmacked - i dont really want to have a shine

@igot2pman - already tried to play with a black and white layer and layer styles or opacity but i quickly loose any kind of natural texture. in his pictures it still looks kind of natural even if the skin is white

Re: bright / white skin like Kristian Schuller

Hi there,

A good method could be to go to the channels and select the whole red channel (ctrl + a) copy and paste back to a new layer and then set the layer mode to "negative multiplication". Sorry I am working in german version so pls be generous if the translations are incorrect.

Thx for the warm welcome Amica999

But isn´t "screen" what is called in german "ineinanderkopieren" as in copy? See dramatized effect in my example

Cheers Mandos
