    I have been noticing that photos in magazines lately have a certain look where it seems like cross processed film, but different. The photos have a blue cast and kind of look like when they shoot scenes during the day but process it to look like night. I'm wondering if there is a certain film that does this, or is this more of a maniplulation in Photoshop? Hopefully I created the thread in the right area, I wasn't sure what category this falls into. Thanks for any help! -Adamtron

    I will attempt to insert a photo of this techinique below- Jake Gyllenhaal from an issue of GQ to demonstrate what I mean...

    That looks more like using tungsten film with daylight or strobes to me. I find it a bit yucky myself.

    I don't think it's cross processing, either. Could be tungsten film, but it also looks photoshopped to me. Note the subtle halo effect around the face. It's an interesting color cast.

    It's a Photoshop wipe.
    Cross processing and Tungsten in daylight give a different effect.
    This is just one of those trendy little effect fads that some photographers/magazine art directors go through just to be 'different'. It'll be something else next month.
