New member looking for help with technique.

Hi, this is my first post on a forum.

I am looking for someone with advertising retouching experience who could help me with some pointers to how I can achieve a certain look in my work.

I have attached an image of a photograph that is not my copyright, but a beautiful example of a very current look in retouching and I am trying to find out how to achieve a similar look in Photoshop.

I have searched the internet and book stores for ever, without finding any leads, so I have now turned to forums.

I hope this is posted correctly and look forward to any advice offered.

Thanks and regards David.

Look for Dragan style in the way to learn how to make photos look more depth.
Basicly it's a dodge and burn techinque (d&b) with a blue chanel pasted in overlay mode.
Play with curves or other adj layers in the way to ochieve the tone u want.

Take in mind that the most important thing in this type of retouch is the starting photo u have and in particular way a good lighting.

Make some try and let us know if u need more info.

Have a nice day,

This is a variation of a Joel Grimes technique. You could check out his blog.
