More participants from the Beach of the Dead. Yet more evidence that hospitals are the worst place you could seek sanctuary or aid during a zombie outbreak. Use your brains people or have them eaten!

  1. I’m really getting a kick out of these photos. They are not only gorgeous, but also creative. I love the lighting, color and the general feel. How do you get some of the colors to look muted while others stand out? For instance, the reds are so brilliant in some areas of the photo while darkened in others.

    I think it’s exceptional what you’re doing. Carry on!

    1. Thanks, glad you like them. The zombie images allow me to be a bit more creative in post process than I would normally be.

      I mostly process my images in Lightroom (I have a wide range of presets that I tend to use as starting points) and for my zombie pics I’ve been applying a moderate amount of split toning, which can be used to target highlights and shadows separately with any hue. I also play about with saturation and luminance and tend to liberally tweak the tone curves. And I sometimes use masking to target specific parts of an image with a particular tweak. Most of this can also be done with Adobe Camera Raw.

      For some of my images (e.g. in the previous two posts) I have exported into Photoshop and blended in coloured texture layers, which I usually get from Shadowhouse Creations.

      1. Thanks for the response. This is great. I’ve played with Photoshop’s burn and dodge tools, mask and saturation. Your implementation in Lightroom is outstanding. Your details will come in handy the next time I want to try something different with my photos.
