I've been trying for a few days, tinkering around in Photoshop and Lightroom trying to recreate or at least capture the essence of post processing I found on this blog (external link)

I've got a vague idea, the shadows are blue-ish and the highlights are beige, but beyond that, I'm stumped.

I figured someone in here could help me... anyone?

If I could keep this contained to Lightroom, that would be awesome, but it's not a necessity.

Shoot with shallow DOF, then go to photoshop and apply these curves to get the color tone:

Figures, I was overcomplicating things.

Excellent, thank you!

Use the split-toning mentioned above. Bring up fill and drop saturation and clarity a bit.

There's a ton of presets on google for vintage look.
Try decreasing your saturation and vibrance and see how your image comes out. Sometimes adding color temperature or decreasing it too will help give it that effect.
You just have to play around with your image until you get the desired look.

Vintage actions and settings are everywhere, but I wanted this specific one with blue shadows and red/green highlights.

This method would look amazing with some photos of abandoned places

I just found this website the other day and has some great tips into processing. www.slrlounge.com (external link) and they have many youtube tutorials. Looks like they are using "vintage cross processing".
