    Mood/Tone

    Post-processing a picture can be fun especially when we want a different mood or tone for it.

    But I was wondering how did this photographer edit these pictures..

    Hopefully, there is someone that is willing to help me!

    Thanks..

    The first one has used shallow DOF (Depth of field - area in focus, front to back). Probably F2.8, or even F1.8/F1.4. You can tell when a lens aperture is wide open by the specular highlights in the background, if the aperture is wide open, the highlights will be really circular (as is evident by the circular highlights in the back right of the first photo), as you stop the lens down further towards f22, they lose this distinct round shape. The large aperture also creates the blurriness in the background and foreground. Remember that the smaller the number, the larger the aperture so f2.8 is larger, than f8, is larger than f16, is larger than f22. In general, the bigger the number, the bigger the depth of field.

    Looks also like they have applied some sort of copper toning to the photos, this can be done in a variety of ways.

    Thanks for the tips, Rick. About the copper toning, do you have any simpler way?

    Image > Adjustments > Photo filters.

    Select a Colour and then adjust the %slider. Some great filters in there, well worth checking that section of PS out.
