Yeah, I can tell her work isn't produced without any local adjustments, especially her more recent work.

Thanks very much for your contribution. I think that hits it on the nose.

If Markzebra would be right each time he types something, the photo-retouching world would be a piece of cake... XD I'm wondering if someone fits on your expectations! lol!

Re: How to retouch like Star Foreman?

What is "two tone" color film??

Does anybody just sit down and do it yourself? Do you need an instruction manual and "actions" to accomplish everything?

As mentioned previously two tone color films are a point of inspiration for Star's method and shouldn't be taken at face value as any technical guidelines for her process.

My earlier post has some reading on it, but it was a very common method of producing color images for motion picture use in the early days of color through various processes. The more well known examples are two-color Technicolor (red and green) and two color Cinecolor (red and cyan). This is why you see strong cyan/green skies and strong reds in Star's processed photos.

Dude, really, calm down. Get off the internet, open up Photoshop, open up an image, and work on it. Forget about Cinecolor, Technicolor, Kodachrome, Ektachrome, whatever. The not too distant past, present and future worlds of color reproduction are staring you in the face. Trust me, this person you are worshiping or promoting (I suspect the latter), could care less about, you know, Cinecolor and ****.

Hey, I'm just saying this is the basis for the look. I don't think there is too much of a reason to explain the 20 ways to alter hue/saturation in Photoshop.

This is the internet, if I can't tell your level of sarcasm then I apologize. I erred on the side of cautioned and actually answered because I'm sure many people have no idea what the hell I'm talking about.

I hardly worship Star, she's direct competition.

Arguing on the internet is like competing in the Special Olympics.

It's for a good cause.

Right?

No arguing, I give up too easily... like a shark that goes into coma when you turn it upside down.
