How to achieve Raivis Freidensons look?

Hi there!

I wanted to know if anybody of You knows how to achieve this look:
http://www.freidensonsphoto.lv/categories/1

I see that the picture is really clean and there might be some selective Highpass layers applied.. I still have no idea about the colors..

How about You??

I dont see special techniques.
I see more contrast and maybe little bit more cyan.
But nothing special.

I think photography and raw conversion is all.

I have an action called crushed ice which will give you that effect. It uses softlight blending mode and some luminosity masking. You can see the before/after somewhere on this page here:

Re: How to achieve Raivis Freidensons look?

Think in terms of :

Color

Light (Shadows and Highlights)

Texture


Color: You have Two distinctive tones in this image - Yellow/orange and Blue/Cyan
Complementary colors. This creates color contrast. I'm guessing because of the monotone look in the skintones a Gradient map (or even a colorized Hue/Sat adj) was used for the skin/Hair (and some of the fur)
Another with the opposite tone, was used for the BG and jacket.

This combination of colors is nothing new

Then Light:
In the face/skin/hair You have every detail in both highlights and shadows. Yet in the BG and the clothing, shadows are crushed. High contrast, but not in the entire image

Texture: The image has a LOT of DOF - be it real or made up - is there and that completes the "look" as you call it. Really sharp subject against a really blurry BG - makes the subject stand out.

Hope that helps.

Have a nice day
x
