How does he fucking do it? Any idea on whats the trick to make it look like a painting? Other than the lighting setup it seems its something regarding color grading

Is that more time in photoshop or lightroom? It cant just be a preset.
>>
>>3463417
Regarding post processing, on camera raw:
>Split tone color grading
Dark blue for the shadows, light yellow for the highlights
> Decreased clarity
Just move it < instead of > like usual
> Open shadows, dull highlights
Increase ">" highlights slider, but decrease "<" white point
Increase ">" shadows sliders and also increase black point ">"


On studio:
> One very large diffuse reflector to the right, bout 45º
> Perfectly bodied model
Probably the hardest trick to pull off
> Satin lingerie
Or other luscious reflecting fabric
> Painterly background
>>

Diffusion filter maybe. A Tiffen black satin gives bloom to highlights and opens up shadows. A high enough strength filter might give something very close to this out of the camera.

Ask the photographer. Some are really open about their processes.

LITERALLY WRONG

its russian shit. they use different process than the western fags.

They post process on vodka iirc.

Looks like Dubnitskiy. I fucking love his style, so creamy.

why do you, motherfucking cunt, keep posting russian shitty pics and asking how they do it? what the fuck is wrong with you?

Jokes on him, the guy is a Brit.

look up 'lens netting'.
it's actually pretty hard to pull off, flare becomes a serious issue if you cant flag out your light source

maybe the orton effect? I don't shoot portraits but it looks similar to a commonly used effect in landscapes.

You can't just acquire a look like this. It's cultivated over a career.
The main thing I see is that the lighting and position of the model has been keenly paid attention to to lay across muscular sources of shadow. A large diameter (semi diffused) source has been used 2 metres away. It is also warmer nearer the middle (although this may just be masking in post or even another source).
There is a lot of different layers at hand that aren't easy to deconstruct and - at points on the edge of ruining the shot (the posterising on the wings).
You just need to slowly work towards this with many layers, targeting different areas with different blend modes, masking and opacity. A custom gradient map in colour mode may prove to be very helpful starting point.
I can't tell from the shitty quality, but there looks like there could be a lot of aberration; pointing towards the use of a very old, yellowed and soft lens (think 50s or older perhaps) or purposeful diffraction on a new lens

LoL

The background painting has same lighting or at least not visibility incompatible

its becuase she's standing infront of a painting, with a blur filter, 1 deep hexagon and a warm filter.

also this photo in particular is low resolution, so its just hard to resolve 'real world' details with your eyes

It looks more like a far away almost hard light.
Could be the sun, an HMI, or a big fresnel
>>
>>3463417
I will say that the light source could be the sun (direct), it's almost parallel to the camera and like 30° up.
The soft focus could be a clear filter smeared with vaseline or light sprayed with hairspray.
Alfter that, color grading offcourse.
The rest is lingerie and poses

Not one of you guys is even close in how this is done.
>>
>>3466002
Do you know? seriously, I have real interest in doing this. If I get drunk on vodka, will it help me?

but seriously tho, if you have anything related to this kind of editing, many of us would enjoy a lot
>>
>>3466020
I can tell you I did some testing and followed >>3463430 in regards to the colour grading and actually got a pretty comparable colour, but I could really only test the grading, I don't have diffusion to throw on my lights or a model to show a lot of skin to test the rest of the advice.
>>
>>3463417
Let's break it down as far as I can tell:
We want to make everything so that people think of old oil paintings (Rubens, John Singer Sargent, Michelangelo, etc.)

Lighting:
directional but soft
likely it's a softbox with a grid that's not too close to the model
strong shadows that define forms are super imprtant here, check out Rubens paintings if you want examples

Background:
He actually uses a painting here but you could use a classical painted/textured muslin here

Subject:
here he uses props and hair/makeup that fits the theme and even the background
think greek and roman myths, gods and such
He creates an association to paintings instantly with that.
For simpler portraits you could use old timey clothes and hairstyle and makeup that's inspired by classical paintings. Props like jewlery must fit the theme too!

Photo gear and exposure:
pretty much evertything must be in focus, paintings from that time didn't have background blur!
Lens must get you sharp details (at least in the centre) but musn't have high contrast. For example old single coated lenses and old russian lenses, more character is better so keep the aperture open if you can. There are soft focus filters that can help with the effect but your milage may vary.
Shutter speed is not important because flash.
ISO is not very imprtant because it's not about pixel peeping.

Color grading:
I can't help you with that but you should propably research paintings you like and match those. The way the color of those old oil paintings aged is not obvious on first look but important because of the associations!
