how to get this look

Hi everyone,

I am trying to get this low-contrast, detailed painterly look.

Any ideas would be appreciated.
Thank you all

A lot of that there stuff is done with lighting to start with. God lighting setup maybe 3 or 4 strobes. I would imagine the PS stuff is pretty basic when you know how.

But check this out for lighting. It's a similar effect with little or no PS, maybe download an image and have a play in PS with New Fill Layers or Channel Mixer.

Add A New Layer.
Fill It With 0d0e36 colour
Set Blend Mode To Exclusion
Play With Opacity

Lighting Is The Key

What about the details and the painterly look.
I do not think that it is about the lightin setup

Re: how to get this look

Joanna is one of the best photographer and retoucher I've ever had opportunity to chat with. Her knowledge about photoshop, about lighting, about attitude to models is just perfect. Additionally: hard work + talent + personality + passion + patience. I will follow this thread, it will be really interetning...

Re: how to get this look

The main tones are not the same as the hair, eyes and some accesories.

So primary thing: MASK (Nothing is done globally)

now one Adj Layer Curve: Lighten the clipping point of the shadows, darken the clipping point of the highlights. in the same curve go to the blue channel and adjust the curve similar to the prior steep.

That's the "main tones"

Then mask out hair and accessories from that adj

Create a color adj layer (could be color balance, hue/sat, selective color) and adj the tones of the hair, mask out everything else

Same for accesories and eyes.

Hope that helps.
