Specialist Studio Practice 3 – Colour Lookup – 3DL


‘You see color toning and film-look effects just about everywhere you look these days in fashion photography, and you can recreate this look using Photoshop’s built-in Color Lookup tables (they instantly remap the colors in your image to create some pretty cool color effects, inspired by the lookup tables used in movie making and video). There aren’t a lot of controls to play around with—most of these are pretty much “one-trick ponies,” where you choose a look and you either like the effect or not—but what’s nice is it’s available as an adjustment layer, so you can control the amount of toning (or just tone the background using the built-in layer mask).’ S, Kelby (2015) 

I have chosen an image from my project to test the pre-sets on. As this is a current trend within the fashion industry I need to become comfortable and confident with this effect and how to use is effectively. I have started by applying the pre-sets i like to an image from my project to see what kind of aesthetic adds. I am going to build up my knowledge on this effect and potentially use it within my project.
