Q: LensWork Brown, how to achieve in AfterShot

Post by springm »

Recently, Brooks Jensen shared his lightroom and photoshop presets to achieve the brown toning of monochrome images that he uses for his publication http://lenswork.com

The presets are
* http://lenswork.typepad.com/files/lw-wa ... lrtemplate (for lightroom)
* http://lenswork.typepad.com/files/lw-brown-1.blw (for photoshop)

The relevant blog entries are
* http://daily.lenswork.com/2013/01/lensw ... redux.html (with screenshot) and
* http://daily.lenswork.com/2010/01/lensw ... tones.html

Has anybody tried to duplicate this toning in ASP? I am somewhat stuck as I don't know with which plugin to begin and how to translate the settings in ASP.

As I do like this warmish but not overdone toning very much, I would greatly appreciate any help or hint.

Best regards

Use the Lightroom settings as a Hint (from the comments in the blog entry with screen shots) and then go with Splittoni which is sort of a superset of the split toning tool in LR.

Thx Andreas - just one problem: can't find SplitToni any more. The only "Toni" I have is FatToni, and this also seems the only one on the plugins download page. And - FatToni's sliders only allow to set a "Hue", with a quite coarse slider and values I can't translate into LR equivalents.

Or is there a SplitToni working with ASP still around?

Look here ... http://aftershot.sadman.net/
This version still works with 1.1.0.30 and output is fine

Thx - got it. There most probably is a reason for not having it included in the ASP plugins download :(

Me thinks sadman has never included his plugins there.
Anyway, Split- or FatToni, both will do, just go for a reddish, close to yellow hue in the shadows and then adjust saturation and contrast to taste.

... and then print - in these nuances, only a print can show the "real thing". My first attempts some time ago were not really successful, as I had tried to decide from the look on the monitor
