Paolo Roversi look

My client wants the look of this reference picture taken by the skilled Paolo Roversi. I would appreciate any thoughts/tips of how to get close to this "style".

Thanks in advance.

Re: Paolo Roversi look

Can be many different techniques. Selective color. Or in the blue curve.

Re: Paolo Roversi look

In the curves or levels just pull the blacks out of the separate channels until you get the color you want. Pretty straightforward...I like it for making that "vintage" look.

Re: Paolo Roversi look

I am not sure, blue looks like classical crossprocessing but selectively masked out, I think vintage look might be reached a bit bit by using analog, colors later edited and masked

Re: Paolo Roversi look

Hi

I think this one could be done with only a few layers set to color or colorgradient with colors taken from referece objects, after desaturating the whole image.

If you need more information, let me know. And don´t for get that Paolo Roversi is an incredibly good photographer and most of the mood is probably done by lightning while the picture was shot.

Regard Chris

Here is a quick try:

Re: Paolo Roversi look

I think a lot of the feel in his pictures has do do with his lightning. He always use natural light as main light source . Then he also use hmi lights, no strobes. Long shutter speeds. And i think crfbillmann picture looks pretty good. I wish i could see some bigger thumbnails

Sorry, I suppose you could say that I'm not really "up to date" with the terminology. I agree it's classic cross processing, in my book of vocabulary classic sometimes comes out as vintage but I suppose that could be defined as a different look altogether. My bad. I hope you at least understood the basic process of coming up with the result.

Re: Paolo Roversi look

Yeah, its def cross processing to achieve the "colorcast" of the pictures.
The colors is one thing, but the feel and the.. how to explain.. the whole "painty" look is not easy to catch. Im i the only one seeing the painty feel over it? I also would say alot it by how its shot, but im sure this also have had its hrs in photoshop.

I can see clearly he have masked out the girl by looking at her legs, which pops lil unatural, but with taste. The skin is smoothed out, but i just cant get over the painty look which i love (its not mutch, but its there).
