  1. [​IMG]I need to know how to achieve this kind of looks instagram.com/kayleigh_june or www.facebook.com/pages/Kayleigh-June-Photography/137396032976538?sk=timeline

    I love her photos and I really need help, I would appreciate it <3
     
  2. I might be naive but is that really heavily photoshopped stuff? - Looks conventionally done to me; i.e. might involve clever use of light?
    What is the photoshop specific open question? - I never painted my (absent) light into flat pictures but I am sure a lot of folks trying to do so make less natural appearing mistakes?
     
  3. Photoshop is not the answer here but rather good photography and talent. Not something that photoshop can achieve. The answer is practice practice practice
     
  4. I understand you guys and I appreciate it, but my question is that I want to achieve the colors in her photo, like an analog effect or whatever it is, those colors , you know what I mean
     
  5. She gives hints to her post processing techniques on her Flickr and other posts, and mentions some Photoshop actions. Looks like fairly familiar faux-retro effects available from many sources as Photoshop actions and other editing tools. She may modify some existing actions or presets to suit her tastes. I'm not seeing any one predominant effect. It's a smattering of warm, cool, lower saturation, etc. Some may involve working in layers, using screen effects, etc. Lacking EXIF data on specific photos only she would know for certain how she achieved those looks. But it's a fairly popular and currently trendy look used by many photographers for portraits, weddings, modeling, etc.
    Depending on your basic editing platform - Photoshop, Lightroom or other - you could download several trial versions of retro/nostalgic/faux-faded-film actions, presets, etc. Or try VSCO or other trendy post processing tools that are popular with many portrait photographers now.

    Oh for goodness sake!
     
  7. If you understand anything about filters then you can either warm up an image or cool it down. As far as the lighting and photography goes I can not teach you that. Sun flare or strobe flare causes effects on it own and the addition of filtration will enhance it. Trial and error is your friend. Just got out there and do it.
