In this 15-minute Editing Toolbox, you are going to learn how to create the soft grey-green and warm yellow-orange tones as seen in the photos above, when starting from a relatively green SOOC image.
To be able to follow along in this tutorial you will need to know:
- how to use the HSL panel in LR or ACR
- how to use adjustment layers in PS
- how to mask adjustment layers
Below, you will find a link to a similar photo taken at the same location, so you can try the techniques on this picture.
Feel free to share it in our private network, but please do not share on social media as it was part of a client shoot.
As I say in the video, keep in mind that the exact settings and numbers used in each of the layers WILL CHANGE dramatically from photo to photo. Therefore, don’t try and copy the settings exactly. Or even the process!
Instead, use the process and concept as a starting point, and tweak, change, add, remove layers and colours as needed.
The main thing to remember is that you’re moving the green tones toward cyan and removing yellow from them, and you’re moving the yellow tones toward orange, and removing cyan from them.
