Im curious to know how to really add a high warm goldish hue to glamour images. Johnny Crosslin out of texas looks like he has mastered this technique. Any help would be great!

I think there are quite a few ways to do it:

1. Shoot during the last 2 yrs before sunset, you will get very warm skin tones.

2. Use a filter 81A and 81B tend to work best.

3. Use photoshop, Im sure this is the most popular way around here. You can't get warm tones all around but the teeth look pure white [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] then you know it was PS'ed.

4. If you use lights outside, gel them.

5. If you use a digital camera, put the settings to shade/overcast.


I may be wrong, but that is how I think is done.

Actually you put a colored gel over the teeth when shooting that cancels out the gold effect of your light source. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] You just have to understand color theory.

But I've found that a gold reflector or a gold/white zebra reflector does a good job on getting the kind of skin tones we're talking about. I also use NIK Color eFex Brilliance/Warmth filter in PS to do it after the fact, or to enhance it.

There are a lot of techniques to achieve warmer skin tones. The first one is skin tone itself. A lot of models that Johnny works with I am sure have warm and tan skin tones to begin with.

Second is using what has been mentioned with a Bastard Amber Gel covering the strobe or placed on a panel in a soft box. If you want suttle you can place the gel on the front panel of a soft box vs over the strobe itself.

Gold Reflectors for fill or belly pan underneath the light work too. A multi dome by photoflex can come with gold panels that velcro in from the manufacturer.

Warming filters over the lens work too.

Then you can simply play with White Balance with digital cameras. In the old days certain film and chrome characteristics played in to those golden skin tones.

Be careful. Throwing techniques into a natural warm skin tone can make everything too gold or orange.
