I want as realistic look and feel as the above photos but since I am a newbie with Photoshop I nedd some expert advice. How can I achieve this look? Should i use filters, blends etc? I am using CS4. Any help would be more than appreciated. Thanks
I would analyze the image. Look at the noise. The amount of noise, the size and shape of the noise. The black density - is the black really dark, or a touch lighter in some areas. Is the color saturated, or desaturated? Is the image blurry at all? Is the color shifted in areas? Study the image and you'll know what to do.
