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

Guys, i've decided to try something today after work, i applied the most of the adjustments only to the face, because im short of time, the lighting set is build in flash,with my sony DSC-R1.
Before

After

I think is not so bad, for the lighting setup was used.

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

Hi Snook... glad to see you're here... hehehehe!!!

It's a shame not everybody is willing to share....

However, I have to congratulate Mtmm.... his version just looks right, full of details... not just the flavor but everything except the guy is not Brad Pitt or 50cent!!!

I think in addition to Mtmm recipe, the Man has definitely trained eyes!!!

I have to admit I don't, hopefully, I can improve....

The way I would describe it is that Snook got it let's say 90% but it's that 10% that is missing... not covered on this thread!!!

PS:Snook, your portfolio looks smashing, the one I've seen 8 or 9 months ago!!!

!!!I am just happy to be able to see the Magic some of these/you guys can do!!!


So Mtmm, you know by now that you ROCK... right!!!!!

PM me if you like..... I know good stuff is not for free... not sure if $1000/(your price?) would do.. to guide me through these 10% or more percent based on what I already know!!!

Cheers

What would you do with it to get even close?
Just curios?
Mr. Contrast works pretty well also..
Of course the bigger and better the file to start with helps a lot. I use 30 megapixel images or my 1DsMII images..
The P30 images hold up much more information..:+]
Snook

TOPAZ adjust can get you pretty close also..
They all are getting to the same effect.. lifting shadows and dropping highlights or exaggerating the highlights if you want..
Actually think mine is better than yours...:+]
Please stop using my photo. I did not put it here for retouching. I did only post an example of 5-point light setup. Remove it please.

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

sorry snook, but first of all: don't use the image, when mtmm dont want it. second: it really looks like crap. i know you know it better... just plugins dont get you there. not 80%, not 50%. come on, be serious! handmade stuff is soooooo much better.

Sorry Snook you cannot get away with plugin crap. It looks really bad. Using a tablet and going in there and localizing contrast and tonal values is the way to go.

Hey... get off Snooks ass. If you look at his site he does some fine work. He is one of the few who actually contributes and makes an attempt to provide some information. Many others just critique and show their stuff but contribute nothing as to a method.

Thanks a lot Natasa... good to see someone from another forum...:+}
Let me know if you ever need anything..

Hope all is well...

You may have to ignore half the posts in here, but if you weed through you can find some great information.
