Dave Hill Video

I was never able to get Dave Hill for a RetouchPRO LIVE show, but this is perhaps the next best thing.

For all the detective work being done here on RP trying to deconstruct his technique, the answer seems to be deceptively simple: thousands of dollars, a dispiriting amount of photographic talent, and shockingly little Photoshop.

My favorite quote: "HDR is the devil"
He has to use PSB file format.

Here are the final images he's discussing:

The one question I was dying for someone to ask (it sucks not being the host) is "When you're shooting an image to match up with another image shot a month ago and 7000 miles away, how do you match up the angles?"

Re: Dave Hill Video

to see (mostly) unedited dave hill shots, or at least to get a feel for what they look like before lots of color correction and "atmosphere" additions are made, check out: http://www.behance.net/gallery/Sprin...g-2011/1011959

this is one of the only dave hill shoots I can find which was not retouched by dave himself, and the comps look for the most part unprocessed (aside from the silhoetting/positioning that marcus did)

dave did his own versions of a few shots, visible on his portfolio:

Re: Dave Hill Video

I think there is no "Dave Hill effect" :-) The lighting and the compositing adds the depth to the images, thats all.
