how to achieve the same colors and contrast?

how to achieve the same colors and contrast?

Hi this is my first post on this forum.

I have a big problem with the solution to puzzles amazing colors and contrast of the pictures of one of Polish photographers.

http://www.matrimonio.pl/

what can I achieve a little bit like working but said a lot is missing.
I'm interested in doing so pure colors and contrasts, and perfect skin color

the last few days trying to figure out this technique, the effect on the link below.

The thing I'm noticing is the other photographer's colors are mostly warm while yours are cool.

If you're striving for a warm romanticism you might want to try a warm overlay. Tons of ways to do it in PS, Lightroom, etc.

Murray with the utmost respect but unfortunately this is not the effect.

I put a picture before

in your treatment of the colors have become heavy and not clean. with K.Tkacz are clear
and not saturated with additional colors, they have their tonality, except that even the pictures are not using the flash is visible, called it a 3d lighting.

My treatment consists in emphasizing the "high lights" of D / B
Then copy the layer with a lower bw on which is superimposed highpass low beam (0.3), the upper layer of the softlight. copy the top gives the effect of color contrast and highlight detail, but what's next ...

Pezemekb, the portfolio on Matrimonio is quite large, taken with good equipment and lighting but also includes much post-processing with many styles - some HDR effects, high key, low key, selective desaturation,split toning, and others. It is not really clear to me what exact effect you are trying to duplicate.

I understand everything, but generally treatment is based on one style, for example, will let the picture from the link

http://tkacz.dokuro.org/BLOG/pary/wake/0043.jpg

I mean that the pictures without a flash look as if they were used on some occasions a secondary light source

before and after pictures, notice the last one on the bottom (entrance to the church)

Re: how to achieve the same colors and contrast?

Pzemekb, I opened the that image in Camera RAW and use the White Balance tool on a neutral area. The result was a shifting of the Temperature to -36 and changed the Tint to -20. You could also adjust the WB in PS. I duplicated the result and changed the blend mode to Overlay. Finally reduced the saturation in the Magenta channel a little. The result was almost identical to the after image with the exception of the candle flame where it look like he painted back in the original flames, and that is what I would do as well. I would post the images but they are copyright protected so mine is in the trash now but you should be able to duplicate this yourself.
Regards, Murray

not sure i agree with that. some have mostly color correction and added contrast, others cross-processing, etc.

but anyway, maybe something like this?
