Editing / Toning like this (Sam Robinson)

Hello all, I'm new to this forum.
Starting with a question, of course.

I'm just working on a look like this
http://sam-robinson.com/stills/pure/puredec13london04/

Can you help me, how to achieve that toning / look?

I'm working on a raw file, which i can't upload here. But if I got the Look, I will do some by myself! Of course, it's important to shoot with wide aperture, back light. Pretty sure white reflectors.

But what about the post-processing? How to do that color toning? Additional flare is no problem at the end, i guess.
Maybe someone got some hints? Or has done something similar?


Hope you can help me.

Thanks.

Chris

You can do that multiple ways, but try pulling up the low end of the red channel curve to give the reds in darker areas a boost. He's either warming up shots with this or in some cases raising the green curve to give it a more 'cinematic' look.

Play around with shadows in Color Balance (leave the preserve luminosity ticker on, that will give a contrast boost while you're adjusting sliders).

Simple steps, do not overkill, these shots are supercool because they're sort of alive, not the grumpy sad dull fashion kind of thing.

Yes, they're so alive. Really love that!
Thanks for the curves hint. That's what I was trying, too. Think I'm on the right way then.

As far as the individual blouses, you will need to boost the color, not through saturation, you will need "pop" the colors through LAP.
