    hello i am new here but not to shooting. i am pretty proficient in photoshop but i am never quite happy with my photography when it comes down to processing it. i can never achieve the look i am after.

    here are some examples of the treatment i am looking to achieve.

    the colors seem desaturated in a way, but vibrant in another, i cant describe it, they look kind of "pastel" to me.

    please if there is anyone out there who can lead me towards this technique i would highly appreciate it.

    I think the look of the photos have more to do with the lighting than the processing.

    I must be getting old. QFT is not one I've seen. I had to google it; it has many meanings. I'm gonna assume you guys didn't mean quit f'n talking.

    The guy's blog (http://gageyoung.tumblr.com/) has some photos that show his lighting setup, and he has some explanations, albeit not detailed ones like a tutorial would. There are many sites that have educational material regarding lighting. Best place to start would be Strobist
