Any guesses on how to get this effect?

Hi fellow retouchers!

I recently fell in love with these images: http://fstoppers.com/christian-stoll...28fstoppers%29

Here is his portfolio: http://www.christian-stoll.com/websi...s_overview.php

Does anyone have an idea on how to get these kind of images?

Re: Any guesses on how to get this effect?

Here is a link to the above workflow reference: http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/pho...tml#post257387

The jest of it:

You will need color profile called aimRGB in your color profiles folder.
- Open a picture
- Edit - Convert to profile -> Adobe RGB (1998)
- Edit - Assign profile - AIM RGB
and again
- Edit - Convert to profile -> Adobe RGB (1998)
- Edit - Assign profile - AIM RGB
- Duplicate Background layer
- Set copy to Multiply
- Still on copy -> Blending Options - Alt-click "Underlying Layer" and drag the white(on the right) slider to about 112 or whatever works for you.
- Add a Curves layer, and drag the black slider to about "Input 25" - optional

You may also create your own version of AIMRGB by: (verbatim, not my wording)

>>>>>
You can create a gamma 1.0 profile in Photoshop's color settings. Select "More Options" to show all the controls. Select an RGB profile as a starting point, then go to "Custom RGB..." and change the gamma value to 1.0. Then go to "Save RGB..." to save the gamma 1.0 profile you just created.

BE WARNED - if you are working in 8 or 16 bit/channel, gamma 1.0 probably isn't the right thing to be using. If you are working in 32 bit/channel, you are already using gamma 1.0 (because that's the only thing that makes sense for floating point values).
<<<<<

I hope this puts you on the right track
