Smile Help understanding this technique

Hi,
Just want to ask the processing or technique used by this photographer/retoucher Manny Librodo, I'm always amaze how he achieved those vivid colors and also those desaturated photos.
How do you think he achieved this ? and what would be the possible workflow and post processing or is this a product of a possible plug-in ? and base some googling this are all natural lights !

here are some sample images

krystal
kharu


Thanks in advance

Some really nice shots! Now I can't give you the recipe, but the first one seems to have no real black or real whites and the color palette is pretty narrow.

Have a look at this, a few years back, for a more ideas about his technique.

Re: Help understanding this technique

thanks Eithne.
I've read it, and i believe its for the sharpening of the photos .
Im curious on how you will get the vivid colors both on saturated photos and those de-saturated photos, Maybe someone can give us an insight on a new approach on this kind of processing
thanks again

Re: Help understanding this technique

Hi noypi. retoucher here from the philippines
just to clarify theres no single plug in that can achieve that look. If you really want to learn his technique why not attend his workshop? altho it is very expensive.

My opinions on his work since ive tried to replicate his workflow.
he blurs the background a lot. he only uses natural light with reflectors. and he sometimes desaturates the background to make the subject pop.
but even if you know his workflow you cant achieve that without good models and "props"

Hi Johann29(kabayan) Thanks,

I agreed, that there is no single click plug-in can do that ,and also if it happened that i know the workflow it is really hard to achieved that look .

Regarding his workshop thats one of my problem , currently based here in europe and most of his workshops i think are in dubai, asia.

Re: Help understanding this technique

It involves a lot of masking, a bit of blurring in box and a bit in lens way. Due to the nature of the workflow I would advise you to steer clear of that experimentation as a much better effect can be achieved by simply using the right camera and lens.
