new technique

Could you help me figure out the color process they use in the attached image to get this look. I think it might be a 3 color process or Camera Raw light fill adjustment with HD.
Let me know! Thank you so much in advance.
best,
Michael

Re: new technique

I'm sure there are lots of things happening here, but my initial impression is that discrete areas have been colorised with a degree of disregard for the ambient light (atmospheric colour), and this gives the image a slightly "Hopperesque" painterly feel.

Re: new technique

HI! To me this seems more like good art directing choosing a location with only 4 colors (red green blue and yellow). Seems to me like some kind of outdoor Hollywood studio, and the greatest effect is the total lack of detail, meaning all the props and people have been removed and only the surfaces remain. As AKMac says some of the colors may have been changed, but I think maybe the artifical studio backdrop makes for lot of the limited color pallet, but thats just me guessing..

Re: new technique

Erik, nice work! Are you scanning your images relatively flat and low contrast?

Re: new technique

I scan as linear (flat) as i possibly can up against the contrast in the film. Often i photograph targets in the light i want to render perfectly and make my own scanning presets who i again fine adjust when scanning.

Re: new technique

My favourite photogs, Mert & Marcus, did the same thing for this editorial in W Magazine a few years back - Selective colour tinting +/or something else...?

Re: new technique

Thanks for the insight it is helpful. I agree it is hopper like in the layout and the imagery is like Mert & Marcus, using: fluorescents in a large soft box for shadow with the sun behind, then 2 relectors right and left and color gels. There seems to be a lot of PhotoShop post production also, technique like color fill and HDR because of the overall flat color and the amount of mid tones. Not sure though.

Awesome. Scanning is an art unto itself.

Re: new technique

It is nice work, I have never done any scan work before. Why do you like it better than something taken digitally then post process in Photoshop? Is it for the detail of film? Is the quality that much different to justify the extra step of development? Is it a color scan?
