Before and After #5

OK, time for another quick before and after!

When I saw the wall, I knew I needed to get some shots in. There was a nice spotlight on the subject, but the color temps looked terrible. I knew I would be able to fix it in post. 🙂

So here’s what I did.

Here’s how the shot looked out of the camera. Notice that the colors look horrendous thanks to the Tungsten lighting. Photoshop Before and After

I used the white balance dropper tool on the wall to get to a good starting point. Then I tweaked my settings as below in ACR.

Then I opened the image in Photoshop CS 5. I used Nik Software’s Color Efex Pro and used the “Tonal Contrast” effect at its default values. This creates a new layer. I erased over the subject’s face on the new layer at opacity of 75% to remove the effect.

Here’s the final image. Not too shabby eh? 🙂
