This is my preset that I have used for the most of my black and white photos over a long time. It will give you that dark, deep and rich skin with nice highlights that you have seen in many of my photos.
The preset works well on a variety of photos. The look can vary depending on exposure and contrast in the original photo. For best result I recommend to use a photo that is not too contrasty and a bit "flat" in the light. The setting can easily be tweaked for best result with you type of photos and shooting style.
This is an action for Photoshop that I call "Summer gold" and it's based on this image. It will give you my typical golden skin that you can usually see in my outdoor natural light photos.
The action works well on a variety of photos and the settings can easily be tweaked to achieve perfect results on every photo. You get best results when using a neutral, low contrast photo from the raw converter of your choice. I have tested with camera raw, Lightroom and Capture One with great results! Additional instructions are included in the package.
