Miss Dior commercial

I absolutely fell in love with this video the first time I saw it on TV. Pretty much all because of the colour tones used.

So my question is if you put aside the fact that Im sure it was shot on some great piece of equipment with some highly skilled professionals would it then be possible to take an ordinary [digital photo with I'm sure a bit of over exposure] and recreate the tones in photoshop?

I see muted effects with a lot of pastel colours. Seems like a simple solve yet Ive never been able to get the colours to look anything but flat and dull.

Hire an art director, a location scout, a wardrobe stylist, and a team of gaffers to get your lighting just so. After that, then you'll have some meaty things for retouchers to get a hold on.

I don't think that there is so much retouching going on there. just find the photo with the same colors (so you can match the results) and play with saturation and color correction, may be even separately on each color

Re: Miss Dior commercial

do a search for daydream actions photoshop, you will find a lot of them and a lot that are free. I got this site from that search.
