Re: Paolo Roversi look

it's surprising how much you can achieve with a few curves
(after all, even after 50 layers, unless you add texture, you are just re-adjusting values)

come to think of it... it may be possible to figure out some of his settings,
since we have how the result shows with WB shift and the original model tones from the camcorder.

anyone cares to try it?

Re: Paolo Roversi look

Guys, I would suggest to check original Vogue webpage:

http://www.vogue.it/en/magazine/vogu...-haute-couture

I don't see any color shifts, grain or ortifacts provided by cheap flat scanner and huge jpg compression ...

Re: Paolo Roversi look

I am talking about this:

http://models.com/work/vogue-italia-...011-supplement

It looks like a cheap copy of printed magazine ... If you want to be serious while judging a technique, you should check the original, not a bad reproduction.

It looks like most of the work is done in the RAW converter (most probably they have few presets, so client is able to see almost final shot on the screen).

And then some vignetting + D&B suppose to be done.

Edit:
And I think I found one of those sources:

Re: Paolo Roversi look

Rust, here is the original image of this particular model directly from vogue.it:
http://images.vogue.it/imgs/gallerie...2622_0x440.jpg

keep an eye on the black-point and the tonality (kind of green-blue overall, with slight pinkish skin)....
contrast, 2x Selective Color, Desat. (although done in PS, C1 has Selective Color corrections too)

here's my go at it

Re: Paolo Roversi look

Shadowlight, I like your version. I gave it another go with your tips in the back of my head. Added som negative clarity in lightroom before importing to cs5. Then played with some different GM and diffuse glow, HS adj.layer to soft light for giving it desat. contrast. Added slight GB and grain.

Re: Paolo Roversi look

Rust, it looks much better now.

I gave mine a second try too, just in PS - curves, 1x selecive color, color balance, levels
(no spot-corrections, so this should be possible to be recreated in C1 as well)
