Hi everyone. I stumbled across Brianna Graham's work, and really like the colours that she's managed to achieve - incredibly rich, but with very natural skin tones. I'd be interested to know from the PP masters how you think she processes her work. Any ideas?
Here's the link.... here

Yes - I'm sure she does and, no offense, but if you think those are natural skin tones, you need to get out in the sun more.

By the way, you might want to think about changing the title. :>)

Not sure what you mean re 'sure she does' Teafran, but I like the tones she's kept in the shots, they look like they've been shot on cloudy days in winter to me. I get in the sun way too much, I live in a subtropical area of Australia, lol, but maybe thats why I like the nice pale skin!!

Title was intentional to get a few more looks at the post!!

Well, when you look at the images, the colors stand out against the backgrounds and "skin tones". :>) Plus, there's a feature in PS called luminensce (sp?) to use on faces and it just looks like she's over used it a tad on some of these.

There were some other images on her page that HDR was used or, how she did this I don't know, partially used.

I'm probably not the best judge however - I really don't like her style at all. Some were images that appealed to me, but overall - meh...

Later,

To me it looks like alot of the shots had strobes used with various modifiers. I like her style too. I think some of them really pop the subjects out. Great locations too.

i don't think any of those images needed a lot of PP. the key to those skin tones is the lighting, which seems to be natural overcast sky, no strobes (maybe just reflectors). a simple curves adjustment to bump up the contrast and color saturation, that's it.

This is a very popular processing technique for portraiture right now. I know a number of people that do almost identical work.

There are a bunch of photoshop actions that you can get that will duplicate this look (although you kind of have to shoot for it to begin with).

I agree with Teafran that these aren't very 'natural' skin tones at all, but it does help the photos 'pop' and look more magazine professional.

I would bet she's using these actions

Anyone know where you can get similar actions, but for free? :)

I always thought girls sat down to PP.

And I giggled really hard too when she said PP masters. ROFL

She teaches a two-day workshop, one full day of which is Photoshop processing. I'm pretty sure she's not using another photographer's actions. :)
