Dave Kai-Piper and Colour Look Up Mode

Fashion Photographer Dave Kai-Piper custom processes of my images.

 

I’ve been intrigued by the unique look of the imagery of UK based fashion photographer, Dave Kai-Piper since I first met him via my days helping companies like BlackRapid and Enlight Photo with their social media work. His photography is beautiful and storytelling, but his processing takes it to another dream-like place. It’s lovely.

When I posted and my images of designer Julie Danforth in homage to photographer Cecil Beaton and Charles James gowns for the famous 1948 Vogue feature, Dave connected with me and offered to give a selection of the images his unique processing for a feature here on the Photo Sister blog. I’m really excited to share with you the final looks he processed!

You can read a full tutorial of how he uses Adobe’s Color Lookup Adjustment Layer process HERE: Dark Beauty – Colour Lookup Mode.
