    cross processing for the colours.

    maybe further work in curves to achieve a washed out effect.

    You can do that in Lightroom with split toning.

    cross process + double tone

    have some courtesy and seek the permission of the owner of the pic before you post it?

    thats why i made a quote that reference to his work and not claim as my own, just like when you quote someone's speech.
    anyway his pic was already made public in FB.

    and after this posting, now then i know his nick.

    anyway i just wanna know if the effect is achieved by camera settings or by post-processing? cos i really love that look and it'll be good if the master can reply to this post. as this IS the site where all photographers will be.

    if anyone else know how to achieve that "old school" or "washed out look", please continue the thread. i will still check back. thanks.

    oohhh ..... just hoping to see if there's other ways to achieve this other than post-processing.

    not sure about it. but i wonder if there's anything to do before the post-processing part, like setting a certain WB, color temperature or something.

    i am still in my baby years in photography.
    i will still try the above advises.

    just wondering if there's more to it, like some kind of settings or way to take them before going to post-processing. and what is cross process / double tone.....

    without pp? doubt it.

    you can try using film slides and xpro.

    i don't know them personnaly but i do admire their work, hoping one day's i'll be as good.

    for their colors, its done mostly in post processing. photoshop or something similar.

    im guess using color balances, color filters, selective coloring and painting, contrast adjustment, and sharpening (alot of it skillfully applied)

    Their printed albums are very well designed too. simple and great use of colors. more elegant than the shiny and sparkly albums i've seen so far.
