How to achieve that effect

Hey everybody, i was wondering...how to achieve that smooth and clear summer (i'm not sure if 'summer' is proper word but...when i'm looking on it, i'm thinking about holidays etc maybe because those photos looks like made with polaroid or something) effect

I'm attaching sample RAW photo from my camera. I don't know, maybe that look is not caused by photoshop but by a great camera and lens used by his author...just play with my raw, we will see

attached photo can be bad for such a retouch - if so, tell me, i'll find another. Or just try to explain how to retouch without making it by yourself


take care and thanks!

You may also add small vignette.

Re: How to achieve that effect

Mostly done in LR. darkened blue luminosity and evened image out. Gave it a vignette, and gave shadows a slight orange hue.

In PS, i gave the shadows more yellow with color bal and set blending mode to saturation (60% opacity). Desaturated the whites with vibrence. Then lastly a overall brightness adjustment.

Hope it helps,

thanks for help !

i have one question - what do you mean by "Desaturated the whites with vibrence" ? How to do that ? Just turn down 'saturation' a bit ?

Re: How to achieve that effect

The images all seem to have a pronounced focal point. My example has no changes made, except adding a focal point.

Make a new Vibrence (or hue/sat CS3) layer. Select the mask and go to color range (Select>>>Color Range). Select white and max fuzzinness and range; this will select all your whites. Lastly you desat, I did it all the way but you could do less.

I did this because in the EX pictures, the bright whites were very clean as apposed to the yellow-orange shadows.

Hope it helps,

Might want to try Cross processing or LOMO. Last two YouTube tutorials on this page.
