    Talking The Funky Look Image Thread

    I've lost control of any remaining sanity I ever had which was not much to start with. All from the GF1

    So this is the get down and get funky color image thread.

    You can pick your friends and you can pick your color, but you can't pick your friend's color.

    Nice Bob. Okay folks this is a fun thread and get crazy with your raw processor. There is a method behind this madness, you will learn something.

    Guy, those look any awful lot like IR-camera raw images before processing - were you inspired by someone's IR shots?

    Are you sure you didn't land on another planet with your camera.

    I don't know. Is this "funky"?. Fall leaves on the ground this morning as I staggered towards Starbuck's. Cheers.

    Re: The Funky Look Image Thread

    It may have been raw processing flash backs from the early 70's. LOL

    Love to see more folks play around with this and one reason i did post these it it does teach you how far to push those sliders around. Sometimes just a tick or two will really throw something around. Try playing around with your Kelvin temp, Contrast and saturation sliders and just try some stuff. Be amazed how weird some things come up . Another fun thing do do is take one of these like mine and convert to greyscale. Differnt colors do different things in B&W

    More power to the funky flower!

    At one time, this was a standard issue petunia.

    Is this too funky?

    You know, the more I look at your second one, the more I like it. It really does have a beautiful glow. Of course, it is a terrific shot to begin with, which doesn't hurt!

    What I found difficult was having all kinds of jaggies and noise come up when I pushed the colors so far from reality. Had to stomp on the NR!

    Joan . I think in LR which I think you are using unlike the color editor in C1 you can play with individual colors which is pretty much what I am doing is taking a sample of a color and than alter that around.

    The second one is really almost real except a heavy heavy dose on the sky. I only had a slight tinge of color but than greatly enhanced that what helps on noise is the black and if I tried to open up some of those shadows than a lot of noise would pop out. So watch your blacks for one , one reason I mention raise the contrast first than start working the color.

    Re: The Funky Look Image Thread

    Ha ha, we keep posting at the same time here ...

    I'm using ACR in PS Elements, so basically like LightRoom, but with fewer options, I think.
    So, after I moved the WB sliders around in raw, I went in and did some further messing around in the Elements hue/saturation and replace color modes.

    I did another version and "solarized" it, but that became too muddy so I gave up.
    Regards,
    Joan

    I also liked this type of look for B&W work. Very interesting

    Big part of this look comes with subject matter as well, this works nice with it

    Than bump the black back up , actually clip the black. What is interesting as you play around you see all kinds of different things changing with regard to color and range of it.

    That is a really nice treatment, soft and slightly faded but with all the detail still there.

    Re: The Funky Look Image Thread

    Thanks for the tips, Guy. I will try again with another one. It really is fun to play with color. I didn't try any masking with the one above, I imagine one could do better by selecting certain areas to push while leaving others alone.

    Well, I gotta head off to bed! It's going on 1 AM here.

    Look forward to seeing what everyone comes up with in the FUNKY thread!

    Re: The Funky Look Image Thread

    Yea keep playing it's fun and a interesting learning experience. Hope others try this as well, not normally what we do but good to break the mold once in awhile. Now in the morning I actually have to process a real job so most certainly need to take a break from this funky look. LOL

    Not sure blue faces and red sweaters would go over very well. LOL

    Cindy, I like your colorful fishies, they have a storybook quality that would make that fun for a kids room.

    Vivek, that's a neat fisheye image, but come on, PUSH those colors, LOL!

    Raf, I'm not sure how you did that, but it looks cool!

    Yippee! Now we're really going out on a limb! Fun stuff, guys!

    Here's this morning's - funky seashells. I may have gone too far, but it was fun.




    Now I have to try to do some REAL processing on about 500 neglected pictures for my scrapbook.

    Thanks for the compliments.... Cindy's, Vivek's fisheye, Guy's grapes, all super images. The unusual effects wear well if feel.
    I am (still) waiting for my adaptor to arrive from hong kong, to use a couple of c-mount lenses on my g1, to get some added "funky" effects. here is another of me, in the same style. -Josef
