What's going on in this image

Hi I really like this guys work. Anyone know what's happening in these images?

Seems like a softened blacks. Teal in the shadows and yellow/orange highlights. Then seems like some selective light leaks of magenta.

What do you guys think? I can't seem to get the image thing to work but here's the url

Is it that nobody knows or did I ask the question improperly?
I searched the board prior to posting and didn't find anything on this style. My apologies if this is a well tread topic.

To me it seems like he has colored the shadows with curves, it's normally the simplest tools when applied correctly that can make the best effects, I would play around with the blues and reds of the shadows in curves and you may get close.

Re: What's going on in this image

Thanks for reply DevKevin. I agree its usually the simple tools that get the job done. However, i am very familiar with the look from messing with curves in the shadows and i don’t think thats whats happening here.

I’m leaning towards some heavy selective color play. But I’m not sure how he gets such saturated color without messing up the skin tones.

Re: What's going on in this image

Look closer at curves as it looks like many of the images have probably been done this way reducing contrast overall and selectively by channel.

Depends which image you are looking at but taking just one at random you can see from a basic histogram that overall contrast reduced a little and also individual channels tweaked particularly the blue

Bring the image into PS and see how far you can correct with curves. Start on one of your own images but make sure the overall lighting and look represent as close as possible to your chosen image from this photographer.

i bet you can get most of the way there using Adobe Camera Raw or Lightroom.

lower your whites and lights, raise your blacks, subtract contrast, subtract vibrance/saturation to taste, in HSL shift your blues to teal, use the split tone controls to add yellow/green to highlights, teal or red to shadows.
