Re: Official "The Look" Thread

i shot everything seperatly the background is a pano of three shots, the car was abandoned somewhere, i shot it for hdr (only the car is hdr), the subject was shot in a studio (white backgroud) with one beauty dish above, two softboxes on each side 45° with elinchrom rangers.
photoshop is dodge and burn
local contrast with luminosity masks (medium light, highlight, shadows)
different setting depending on the light
played with multiply layer to add drama
and then a warm filter.
the camera is a 5D mII lens 16-35 mm

Re: Official "The Look" Thread

Heres an image that leaning a little towards Jill G, that I did some years ago. This is Lisa who has a wine tasting company, and after a few rounds of boreaux I imageine she can look something like this =) Getting Wine Screwed, would be a proper name maybe.

There are two lights from back. left and right, and two lights fron, top and bottom.
She is Dodged and Burned quite heavily, as you also can see by attached, combined layermasks. Also highpass sharpened.

This image is sick! Please tell me your lighting setup!! I have one 580exII and two 430exII's can achieve the same effect with a three light setup? All the lights can be triggered via my canon ste-2. I also have a ring light modifier for the flash gun.

Re: Official "The Look" Thread

Hi Ski, Your images are amazing. I understand the techniques that you said you used, ie the Luma masks and sharpening. But how have you implemented them to get these amazing results. any chance of a workflow? or a rundown of how you used the techniques on the images?.

That is really cool.
It would be really cool, if you could describe in detail your workflow for achieving this.

Re: Official "The Look" Thread

I've been doing the Luminosity Mask technique for years and never knew it by that term! I always referred to them as Auto Masks, that were then of course edited with curves to fit the need and situation.
That technique is one of my faves, and has always been, to me, like giving the image a 'digital zone system' makeover. I've worked alongside many a retoucher with little-to-no photography background, so this stuff was very foreign to them.
