great style by jill greenberg

http://www.manipulator.com/

does anybody know how to create this style?
not in detail of course. but perhaps someone knows how to create this kind of hyperrealism.

greetings from germany and sorry for my bad english :-)

Also take a look at the thread on "Silver Light". All the same concept. You decide how far to take the effect and what colours to add.

thank you shellby. I know these sides and tutorials.
but I think that there is a difference between draganized pictures
and the style of greenberg. I think greenberg deals much more with
local contrast enhancement without changing the colours.

High Contrast

I do love this look and I think that the same concept can be applied. Do you know of Jim Fiscus?

It seems to be all about increased contrast. Rich colours. Fake backgrounds. Sharpening. Dodge and Burn.

On http://www.manipulator.com/ That Lord OF the Rings image is Paint With Light - I think so anyway. Also painting in colours using the paint brush eg) cool blue tones on their skin. Then Dodge and Burn in places to bring out certain features. They have been placed onto a background too.

Have you got any images that we could play with?

Paint With Light or PWL

Try this tutorial: http://www.bechbox.dk/pwl/

Use it to learn the concept and then apply it in your own way.

About Jim Fiscus: http://altpick.com/spot/fiscus/index.php

http://jw-digital.net/blog/archives/...g_the_jim.html

Quote:
"# make a duplicate of your background layer and place it above the background.
# Convert it to grayscale, using your favorite method.
# Switch the layer to hard-light or soft-light mode
# adjust opacity, add layer masks to taste.
# repeat as necessary to fine tune in various parts of the image.

That's it! Now, I doubt Mr. Fiscus uses just one layer to get his photos the way they are, but that's the basic idea behind it."
Try these threads: http://www.photoshoptechniques.com/main/defaulth.php

http://www.mediengestalter.info/foru...-48635-15.html

www.dpreview.com also discuss this a lot

PWL, Paint With Light, Dragon, Fiscus (try searching for these)

thank you shellby
draganize techniques often go hand in hand with an increase of contrast and
a artificial look. what do you think about these examples.
they look moore natural but still very plastically.
