    Default Advice on Colour Satuaration

    Hi all

    Does anyone know to get colours like in this shot? I am really keen to learn. Is anyone able to give me some advice or some direction on any learning material? Many thanks!



    Photo titled "The Kiss" by Amanda Radders at http://photo.net/photodb/photo?photo_id=8446845

    Ok. My "guesstimate"

    The description of the shot by the photographer more or less describes it :

    "--Amanda Radders
    The Kiss

    Exposure Time = 1/400" F Number = F4 ISO Speed Ratings = 640 Focal Length = 75mm Available window light with my d700"


    Just a great shot done with window light coming in from the side (~45deg to subject), that gives good diffused light. If any pp was done, maybe some curves adjustment.

    Don't forget these are oh so cute 'ang-mo kia' (Caucasian babies), so skin tone is different from asian skin tones (very pale vs pink/warmer).

    start with good light and correct exposure

    and don't overdo the colour saturation especially on people

    ya, for human skintone, you can desaturate, but never over saturate it.

    Thanks for the tips guys. Really appreciate it. Have been struggling with colour saturation but can never get it right or up to a satisfactory level. I am convinced that LR which I am using has more than enough tools for the job (do correct me if I am wrong) so I guess it practice practice practice!

    i think their hair colour in the photo also contributes to the appearance/feel which ever you might relate to, that u find it nice.
