This is a 3-point setup plus 2 kickers for background.
those shots look very "dave hill", before he takes them to post production, i am a little mystified as the one with all the lights in the shot should look like a "normal photo" because of where the camera is but i think some post work has been done on this one?!?!

Re: The demystification of dave hill! let's all he

I just picked up a copy of Photo Techniques. One article discusses Tim Tadder (he's been mentioned once in this forum..do a search). His look is very Dave Hill (unfortunately I still can't even get close). The article does a good job discussing lighting and lighting positioning (very similar to what has recently been discussed in this thead). The article goes on to say: "Through a combination of lighting technique using mostly Profoto strobes combined with a substantial post production work in photoshop." So if you've got the lights where do you go next with the work flow in photoshop? Gotta be more than dodge and burn?

FYI Picture number 19 on my site WASNT done with ringflash, it was lit with one light, and only used photoshop to primarily sharpen. http://www.garibaldiphoto.com

Its not overly saturated like DH but my client didnt want that for that particular image
