For that shot he does. I don't think I could get the same result on the previous shot with curves. If you can I'd love an explanation.

I've been getting a lot of messages/comments again about processing for this set. I don't think people believe me when I say I spend a minute on one picture and don't do all that much to begin with. So hopefully this proves that lol.
I don't use S-curves but it does give a slightly similar look.
What is the exact effect that you're referring to?
I do that too and I have a hard time believing one stop is all it takes to achieve that look. Maybe it is the contre jour. I'll try that.Fast lens, proper lighting and not overdoing post...
And by proper lighting I mean shooting in golden light (just as the sun is rising or setting). You can look at his exif data and see that most of the photos you refer to as warm are taken early in the morning or just around golden hour.
Perfect. Thanks! I will try it in Argentina later this week. ;-)A photo like this, the effect I mean, is the result of shooting into the sun obviously. The haze you occasionally get. If he wanted to fix it, he could just make a black solid color fill and set the blending mode to hard mix at say 10%.
The reverse of that, intentionally putting the haze there is just a mix of solid color fills set at a low blending percent. You just need to know the right colors to use and what blend mode to use. A photo like this with a vanilla colored haze
or this one with a warmer haze
