Warm fashion retouch - any idea how this was done?

Very nicely retouched photos - any idea what is that technique to achieve that golden look of skin?

http://www.danvojtech.cz/#/en/fashion/fashion44

I probably know the answer (desaturation, masked solid layers with low opacity, colour curves but what is the starting point? Warm or cool colour temperature? Working in CMYK or RGB? Or LAB?

Thanks for some help guys

use color info and look @CMYK %. possible to try to match % using CMYK curve and Hue and saturation. im not very experience and i wonder if it's possible to achieve this type of mood w/ using vignette or really good lighting or something?

Cool Re: Warm fashion retouch - any idea how this was d

It looks souped up with dodge while keeping the contrast slightly muted. Places where the sun hits are yellow tones, while shadow areas are blue tones (but more subtle). The contrast of the blue makes her highlights seem even warmer. I'd do this with a color balance adjustment layer. Choose highlights and crank up the yellow, then choose shadows and cool them down slightly. Experiment with the mid-tones slider adding a tiny amount of red until the colors look unified. Desaturate distracting colors with a hue/saturation mask. Use curves to fine tune the lightness of the photo.

I doubt her color space had any affect. I whipped this up real quick, ignore the funky skin texture. Is this the kind of thing you were going for?

I think there is much more RAW Editing here that PS.. . Starting by the lens flare at the left side of the image and the cloud over the head of the model that cannot be erased with the standard clone tool from LR.

Use a blue to orange gradient map and set the opacity to 3-10% (given taste) then mask out the bright highlights and deep shadows so you don't have any color casts. this should help.

Smart thinking Vapour. That's way more efficient than my million-step process -- it'll save me time.

I believe the flare on the left is actually rainbow. It is not very hard to cut it out anyway.

mikedimples: You are on the right way but I miss some more contrast and saturation. You have much bluer and lighter shadows than the original image.

Lighting is quite clear: some larger soft source up right and weaker fill camera left, also soft.

What would be you starting colour temperature? Neutral or already warmer?

There are few more on his site worth attention, this whole last series is simply amazing.

I agree with Quantum, RAW is the starting point.

Most of those images have a trick to follow... Dup layer, multiply, desaturated and then do "Shadow highlight" adj. U'll be supriced with the detail and tones.
