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

Has it occured to anyone that DH may not have a "technique" as such, but rather an artistic vision or objective, and that depending on how the shot was set up in the first place, combined with the evironmental factors, he does whatever is needed to get the results that he wants for each particular image, whether it be D&B, curves, compositing, plugins or even painting. Thus, you are actually looking for "what DH did to get this particular image" rather than "what is the DH technique".

Guys
there is quite good article about Dave Hill in the latest Digital SLR photography Magazine! I just bought it for the first time few days ago in Finland (since we don't have it here in Hungary where I currently live) and I liked both the article about this great photographer and magazine itself!

Note and learn to fing read before coming out ur ass.
So why did you ask again for pointer to his work? I think you're a bit slow.

And you not caring to take a second look, just proves his point.

To the rest. Sorry for the OT and feeding the troll. Just can't let bull**** and ignorance slip by.

Carry on.

When I googled him I got Results 1 - 10 of about 38,000 for Javier Vallhonrat so I asked for him to point me to pics he thought best represented the artist in question because I didn't find any that I thought was that special short bus rider. Now quit trolling for a fight cause u will get one jack ass. Or just maybe reading comprehension isn't your strong point?








Again:
I hope this post gets back to what its supposed to be about how Dave Hill does work. If you don't like Dave Hill's work why bother post if you like someone else's work better make your own thread. This is about learning how something is done period. Funny thing tho every few posts you can actually learn something well that is if you have an open mind.

What are you talking about? It's good however the background looks too composited and too grainy. You did a nice job on keep a good skin tone but overall it lacks quality which I think is largely due to the background.

I'm not for sure why admin would close this thread? Part of this site's revenue is generated by ad dollars and membership. This is the number 1 visited thread on this site... why would they close it? Because they cannot do their job in administrating out some of the bad posts that are spoiling the fun for the rest of us?

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

Hey Vapour, chill out mate!

When i tried to open the image I just got a red square, could be an office restriction.

Apologies if I upset you.

Reason to close this thread...all the requirements for the Dave Hill look have been discussed, expcept no one has bothered to put them all together....
