    While watching those highly addictive reruns of America's Next Top Model on VH1, I coudn't help but admire a certain quality in their photos. This photo seems almost like a painting. Everything has a certain luster that just isn't seen in real life and certainly isn't being captured in my photos! Anyone know how these amazing photographers might be achieving this look? Is it in camera settings or post-processing?

    Both photos (they're technically one photo, just cropped) are from the America's Next Top Model website. I couldn't find the name of the photographer.

    Thanks a bunch!

    in the yule time similar effects were achieved with the carbro procedure, but now i guess it's post-processing.

    the photographer was probably using something like this:

    22 megapixels and yours if you want to re-mortgage your house

    don't forget the amount of airbrushing that goes on fashion photos these days. im not putting the picture down, i think it's great.

    My sister watches that show alot and I actually really enjoy the photography they show. Most of the photographers are using the Hasselblad H2D. Alot has to do with lighting, and extremely saturating stuff without making it harsh. Anyways. I agree. The photos those photographers take are absolutely amazing photos. If I wasn't going into Law Enforcement and was gunna do photography as a career that is what I would want to do.

    Hi SepiaTL,

    Kindly post just the links to the images, unless you have the permission from the photographer to post them here.

    Thanks!

    Boltthrower, excellent website! I've been searching for a before and after like this. Amazing what a difference shadows can make. Thanks!

    Ghoste, I'd love to do photography as a career, too but I'll admit I want to make a little more money. :er: What can I say?

    Also, photos were changed to links. Sorry for the faux pas and thanks for being kind when pointing it out.

    As with all photography...it's all about light. (and probably a lot of post production in this case).

    There was an article in Pop. Photo last year about a Playboy photographer and the set up he was using. There must have been 15 different lights plus reflectors, soft boxes, umbrellas etc. All set up for a specific pose.

    Yeah, it's that 22 megapixel back. :roll:

    With 6 mp you can't possibly make a good picture.

    Such a bummer, isn't it?

    Lighting, lighting, lighting and a good stylist and make-up artist are big contributors to photos like that. And yes, you can do nice work with a 6mp camera. Below shots taken with a Canon 10D. Besides resizing for web - no post processing of any kind. :mrgreen:
