What effect are you referring to? I don't really see anything you can't achieve with a normal setup....

So many scenes and also got different treatment. :confused:

Perhaps give a specific X:XX min /secs scene of the shot/segment you want to find out about?

a photo is just a single image, whilst a video like the one you hotlinked contains so many different scenes... which one are you referring to?

You must be refering to either the shallow depth of field and/or the tone.

For shallow depth of field, ie. out of focused background and with the subject "popping out". You would want to look into prime lenses although this could easily be achieved through using manual focusing with your kit lens. Personally, i find using a wide aperture prime lens is best.

The quality of the "blurness' will vary. Another word for this is bokeh - type "bokeh" in flickr or google and view the images.

For the tones, you want to have that blue-ish/green-ish tone. Boost the Blue and Green channel. You might want to observe the quality of the mtv. It's quite low contrast in the background and slightly too bright. Mess around with those settings in your favorite post-processing software.

Hope this helps but if I've guessed wrongly. You can always ask again. ;)

ha..ps. wasn't specific enough.

well, i like the general feel of the vid. the clean shots. the bright image, clear skin tone. the processing and colors.
its like the skin is more exposed than the hair...?

kinda hard to describe so...prolly can refer to 1:27, 1:50, 2:29, 2:55, 3:06 ba.
although i tink they are of the same processing or kind of shots.

ya i guess u got my flow. i guess its the processing which i'm trying to find out?
actually i don't know what i don't know because i don't know how to produce these kind of shots.

dunno wat he talking about leh. Is it the Bokeh effects? Are you using DSLR in the first place?
yup...using dslr.

It's not quite high key. It's more like a deliberate slight overexposure, generous use of reflectors/additional lighting and light, pastel colors.

BAA-BAA! :bsmilie:

Learn about light, if you're really interested in photography. :bsmilie:

Basically, a lot of flat, global and fill lighting and as Rashkae mentioned, slight over-exposure. Also color keying has been altered to render a pastel palette. Try lowering the color saturation in post.

Considering that MTV is VIDEO and you're asking for Photoshop advice... Plus, you are asking about the processing applied to one single video, which meets the more china/taiwan/korea taste, whereas most MTV videos don't use that look...

Well, i'd say get creative with google, but don't expect to find video mtv style processing for a non-video app.

How much are you willing to pay for tutorials, when we have already mentioned here how to do it and simple google searches using the terms we have given you would get you the answer?

an online tutorial will be great.
See the above post. ;)

Aside, I tried Googling 'how to shoot washed-out shots of seksi Roti Prata boys', but couldn't find anything.

How?

i'm not expecting someone to really come up with a tutorial on this.
probably just a link if anyone happens to come across it.

hmm..i did mentioned that my googling skills failed. thats y help is much appreciated, though not rewarded.

understand that i'm taking about images to moving images in videos.
but ppl did mention about pastel colors which i'm totally clueless, and hope some could provide some information on that.

but if its all too much trouble, its fine to let this thread go deep into the graves.

still, many thanks to those offered to share their knowledge, and that includes you Rashkae ;)
