Hey photography people, I'm looking to achieve similar tones to these with my photos as I love the results these two photographers create

What sorts of things do I need to be playing around with?

I've attempted filters with different blending modes and adjusting colour balance but not achieving anything close really

Any help would be greatly appreciated







They have a sort of blue tone to them yet allow other colours to show through without being covered if you know what I mean

Which software are you using for processing?

Looks very similar if not the same effect as using different colours in split toning (lightroom) not sure what it's called in other software. If you change the shadows to a blue-y colour and the highlights to a yellow-y colour then drop the saturation down you'll be on your way. There may also be some custom tone curves in there to sort contrast etc, something i've never really delved too deeply into i'm afraid!

Split tones and white balance are your most obvious options.

Try playing with vibrance/saturation as well. Lowering the vibrance and raising the saturation can give some great results.

Post some original shots if you like and I'll be happy to try out some adjustments and send you the settings.

I did have a go but I didn't get the same colours! Had a little play tonight and both your advice is spot on! Just need to get some new shots to process
