Many of you liked one of my “Osacim”-photos very much in which i used a cinematic color grading. You told me, that you loved that processing so i thought, it might be nice to give you my original PSD so you can see which techniques i used to achieve theses tones. It’s really no rocket-science again!
But i should also say, that i used a flash to help myself with the light situation. I fired the flash from right trhough a “shoot-through” umbrella. Moreover there was a livingroom-lamp as some fill light. I shot the scene from outside through a window to get some reflections into the photo. This is a little illustration of the whole light-scene:
The basic processing was done with a photoshop-action from Pierre Eszes, called “Color Injection”. You can download this action + tutorial here. With this action you can achieve some nice and creamy tones in your photo and it can be adjusted very easy! For sure i made my own adjustemts, you can see them in the PSD. Afterward i only used some adjustment-layers to give the whole scene that cinematic look. I pushed the shadows to blue and the highlights so yellow, i used a curve to give the shadows a milky tint, some sharpening… that’s it!
Have fun with it!
