    Gold!!

    A while ago the Mrs dragged me to a parenting expo..... Im still in counselling for it

    Whilst there, there was a photographer that displayed his images in a gold tone... it wasnt sepia and not some sort of effect that I can replicate in photoshop.... well that I can see or try.

    So that leave a couple of other variables... is it the lens... I have heard that some photographers use a stocking over he lens to give a smooth warm glow or is it the media?????

    I dont think stockings are in excess up here, mainly shorts n thongs weather here.

    Anyone got a clue how to create something similar???

    Its not that I want to rip the same photographer off... I just want to know how to do it... its driving me crazy

    Several ways you could do something like that. Warming gels on your lights, split-toning in post, either or both combined with Metallic paper would provide something quite golden to look at.
    A stocking over the lens would just result in an image with very poor contrast and lack of sharpness I'd have thought.

    I've heard of using Stockings ( Panty hose is what I was told) It gives a warm glow and great Bokeh , As I said I was told , Still have'nt tried it yet though, Karen did'nt want to sacrifice a pair

    Did they also have a soft dreamy effect? It could be one of the Midnight Action Set for photoshop, they can give a golden glow result in post processing.

    Nah not really Rick,

    Could it be one of the effects you can with "Alien Skin" software.

    Hi Toni, yeh I have Alien skins on my macbook pro and its not one of them... for a few photos it actually looked quite stunning... they basically had a 5m x 10 m tent with every image like it and it was overkill.

    I like the idea for say one offs but my real desire on how to figure it out now is just because Im stubborn and dont like being beat!! I have just remembered now....I think the Mrs has a similar photographers link with a similar thing on her mac mini.... Ill go pester her, see if I can find out or get a fist to the head for annoying her

    I guess the other option is makeup... lots and lots of makeup....., JUst figured that either lighting, filters or CS would play a major part in it....

    this is my initial play with it. From what I can tell is its called Orotone or Aurotone... Like I said before not all images would benefit from this but some of the ones that I saw were pretty cool and from what I have tried isnt really doing it justice, but it gives me some ideas to play with.
    Not my photo either, one I picked up from a stock website.

    thanks

    and another.... this one has a slight gold fleck @ 20% (like a sparkle) through it.... not sure how noticeable it is.. its more for texture then the image if that makes sense.

    Just to be clear to anyone that reads this.
    The photo was not subjected to copyright, it was on a free to use Stock images site and was only used to explain a chemical process that I had seen.

    Its wasnt my intention of taking anything away from the actual photographer.

    In light of saying that I do understand where your coming from Rick

    All photos are subject to copyright, by law. If a person wishes to provide them to free stock sites etc, that is their business, but copyright is assigned at the press of the shutter button, by law!

    The photos also contained a watermark, which did not match the one you have used on the photos you have presented on this site so far. Therefore, I assume the watermark belonged to the copyright owner. Our rules are clear. Only photos taken by, and copyright owned, to the member posting them, is allowed!

    yeh I thought about that before using the other one and actually had a bit of a play with a couple but none of them sort of did the idea justice.

    Ill have another look today and see if there is a image suitable that would look ok.

    all right... try again... my photos.... probably not the right ones to use for this particular effect (and Im still working on it to try and make it a bit better).
    Orotone, Aurotone appears to use multiple layers where it is printed on a laminate/ glass then a gold coat is painted behind it. I dare say that it would also create some sort of 3d or pop out effect. I just like the gold tones that it produced.

    By showing these someone may get the drift on what I am after and might be able to teach me a bit more.. hopefully

    normal photo taken with a 4meg P.O.S. Fuji that I brought in 2002.....



    second image is what I am trying to create... or similar.
