hey everyone, help with color tone needed

I was searching the web for help/tutorial, and I just found this forum! This is freakin awesome! HELLO everyone!!

I will read the website rules soon.. at the mean time I'm kinda stuck here, I need to figure out how to achieve this color tone. please check the images attached. My client sent them to me, I guess she found them on some fashion blog. respect to the images owners and retoucher! i wish if magazines start mentioning retouchers names! anyway.. here's the images. If we assume that there was no color gels attached to the lights. how would you achieve that tone.

I also have a question for you guys, how can I check members portfolios? Let's say I want to work with retouchers from this website, where can I check their work? P.S. modelmayhem is blocked in my country.

Thank you
S

Welcome to RetouchPro, Sina. Glad you found us :-)

Do a read on Split Toning, Exclusion Blend mode, selective color adjustment for the effect

Re: hey everyone, help with color tone needed

S, welcome to RetouchPro. The effect is sometimes referred to as Cross Processing.
In essence, you force yellow into the whites / highlights of an image and you force Cyan-Blue into the Blacks / Shadows. There are many ways to achieve it in Photoshop. The two methods I use most often are:
1. Use a Selective Color adjustment layer. Select the Whites from the pull-down menu and move the Yellow slider to the right. The selct the Blacks and increase the Cyan and decrease the Yellow.
2. A prefered method is to open the image in Camera RAW and select the Split Toning Tab. In the highlights, move the Hue toward yellow closer to green and increase the saturation. Then in the shadows section, move the hue to Cyan or just slightly past the Cyan into Blue. Again increase the saturation. Finally play around with the Balance slider to weight the effect toward one or the other.
Regards, Murray
