hi all,

I was wondering how could I get as close as possible to this picture’s light and color effect using Photoshop and starting from a normal image.

Of course I realize a lot of work has been done directly on shooting, but what if I would like to create something similar with a normally lighted portrait using PS in post-production ?

render filters ? duotone adjustment ?

TIA

Not a lot of work went into the shooting of that picture. It is of the ‘mucky’ kind of fashion photography, slob lighting, almost accidental. To make the same from a relatively ordinary, flat-light image is an ordinary exercise in the simplest Photoshop tools: burn with mask or fuzzy area, defocus, adjust hue/saturation with []colorize checked or duotone.

Agreed,

Looks more like a warm up shot that’s been ‘creatively’ duotoned with a lot of colour and contrast.

Probably an in-house agency job creating (sorry should the spelling be cheating) a pseudo effect and passing it to the client as a fashion statement.

Technology driving imagery and not creative skill in the camera.

It’s actually rather easy. The image is lit quite crudely and the post-processing is quite crude as well.

You can simulate the flat, dark look very easily just by using the Curves command. Colorization of the image can be done in many ways, including converting the image to a duotone and then back to RGB, or by using Edit->Fill in Color mode, or by using the "Colorize" option in Image->Adjust->Hue and Saturation.

Of the three, going the duotone route will offer the most control. That image looks like a black and teal duotone, with more black than teal in the shadows.
