Wow, the color for these portraits is just wonderful. If I may, would you mind sharing your little secret behind the processing?
Thank you! No crazy secret here other than using Curves, Levels, Dodging, and Burning in Photoshop. I'm big into editing with Curves. You can get some killer tones if you edit their individual color channels too. I'll usually make a couple filters for a set (all custom made), and make minor alterations depending on the exposure/lighting in the photograph.
Michael James checking in here. We frickin' LOVE these pictures Mike took of us, and if it weren't for him entering into a graduate program soon, I'd be flying him out to shoot with me again. The dude knows his stuff, is professional, and I consider him a good friend now.
Mike, thanks again for these images, man. You frickin' rock.
Thanks again man! I had a blast, and I'm pretty sure you boosted up 100 friend points having visited you in person. I'll be sure to check in every once in a while to tell you I'm surviving my PT program
If anyone on the forums gets a chance to second shoot with Mike, DO IT. Super awesome guy and amazing to work with.
I like the kid's expression in some of them.
