I've been a long time fan of the "Ballerina Project", a series of photos by a NYC photographer over the last 10 years or so documenting ballet dancers out side of the studio. Very beautiful stuff.
The photographer shot film for many years before at least partially switching to digital 6 or so years ago.
I absolutely love the "look" of his photos (especially the color ones) and am looking for an understanding on how to achieve it.
The colors are muted but present, the contrast is fairly flat but has depth. See below.
Any thoughts on how to emulate the color and contrast in these?
