View Full Version : How was this achieved?

I was asked this and I'm not to sure how it was. I'm thinking maybe a bit of topaz and color play but I don't have topaz to know. Can anyone help me with this?



Thank you

Those are gorgeous shots. I know you can change the colour in Lightroom, or Vivezia to give that look. And topaz can give the extra pop to the photo but there are other ways to achieve it as well.

I would have said Topaz Adjust and the playing with the saturation. I've done that before (but not this well )

An ungodly amount of topaz, micro contrast boost / micro sharpening, black level increased and a warming layer of some sort and a green colour cast. Thats how I would do it anyway. And Bambi is correct, some Topaz Adjust with the portrait smooth setting.

didint have many colour portraits to choose from on this computer but something like this.

Thanks everyone! I've related the info. It's not my style and I didn't have any images to match to even attempt it! Thank you ArtTwisted for the time!!!!

It's a good looking image for sure, but way overprocessed imo. If I were the couple I might want 1 or 2 of my photos to look like that, but that's it.

Styles like this will come and go. I shot weddings for a number of years and styles change fast. This style will instantly date/categorize the shot.

I agree, I'd want atleast the originals sans all the pp. It makes for great novelty, maybe for a nice coffee table book, but I can see some of these shots would look great without all the pp too. looking through the pictures, it kinda got annoying after a few.

styles change fast

haha, to think we were doing the Macarena not too long ago!
