CoolContrast Photoshop Action

CoolContrast Photoshop Action

This Photoshop Action is a result of my long term friendship with Scott Sprague, professional fashion photographer. I often used bunch of effects and plugins, making my photos way over saturated, washed-out and just – unnatural. Scott opened my eyes regarding image-processing. He does it old-fashioned way – with lenses, analog cameras and manual exposure, and even when he shoots digital, he keeps everything under control. And he gets results he wants.

In this action, I tried to utilize some of his experience and knowledge about fashion photography (and still photography in general), emulating traditional 35mm film. The difference is obvious, but not too drastic. You can then blend the result image with the original (that will stay preserved) to get more subtle effect. HDR photo is awesome, but very often, it’s simulated and not really jaw-dropping. In most cases, it’s just a washed out image with levels and curves over the top, done with cheep plugins. I am not trying to go there, this is not yet another attempt to simulate HDR photo. This is just a simple action to help you get a better contrast, and a look that you would probably get anyway, using better lenses and film.

Usage:

Load the action through Photoshop’s action panel, open the image, run the action, experiment and enjoy.
