As promised, today I will show you my second collection of color corrections with effects popular in photography.

Yellow brown

After you open your image, create New adjustment layer (New Adjustment Layer) Curves (Curves) in order to increase the green tone. So, adjust the values ​​for your image:

Create New adjustment layer (New Adjustment Layer) Color balance (Color Balance) to give a yellow tint. Set this layer to mode Chromaticity (Color) 100%.

Create New adjustment layer (New Adjustment Layer) Channel Mixing (Channel mixer) to turn down the brightness.

Create New adjustment layer (New Adjustment Layer) Selective light correction (Selective color):

Green (Greens): -85,100, -76, -25
Neutral (Neutral): -8.7, -10, 2
Black (Blacks): 57,88,100,22

Create New adjustment layer (New Adjustment Layer) Curves (Curves) to enhance the brightness of the model’s face and background:

The final effect:

Neutral effect:
I showed a similar technique before, but it didn’t work as it should with all the photographs, so I redid it differently.

After duplication (duplicate) (Ctrl + J) images, go to Channels (Channels) highlight Green channel (Green Channel), by clicking on its name, press Ctrl + A to select it, then press Ctrl + C to copy. Next, click on the RGB channel name and Ctrl + V to paste the copied into this channel. Go back to the layers palette, reduce Opacity (Opacity) up to 50%, this is what should happen (per-ka adaptation):

Create New adjustment layer (New Adjustment Layer) Color balance (Color Balance) to enlarge blue (cyan) hue in the image, so if you already have a blue hue in your image, do it carefully.

Create New adjustment layer (New Adjustment Layer) Curves (Curves) to suppress the shade of blue, and also raise a little shade purple (magenta) on the skin of the model. This step is optional:

Create New adjustment layer (New Adjustment Layer) Selective color correction (Selective color). Work with the red channel if the skin of the model is not good enough.

Create New adjustment layer (New Adjustment Layer) Hue / Saturation (Hue / Saturation). This step will revitalize the skin and lips. It is not required.

New adjustment layer (New Adjustment Layer) Brightness / Contrast (Brightness / Contrast), then I used a black soft brush to erase the model on the adjustment mask mask:

After this step, we see some irregular colors on the hair, neck and hands of the model. Therefore i create New layer (New Layer), install Opacity (Opacity) by 70%, I take a soft brush of color 2d2f27 and paint over these areas.
Here is the final result:

And this is the result of another technique:
