Do all camera RAW files start out in 16bit? How do you convert from Camera Raw (in Photoshop) into a 16bit file?
In ACR you can adjust the bit size, color space, resolution, and file size by clicking on the blue highlighted text below the image. This is a very important step when opening files depending on what their ultimate purpose is going to be.

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

Everyone pretty much works in 16 bit really. It's the norm now. Anything serious is definitly done first in 16 bit and then down sampled as needed. You can get 16 bit right out of your RAW processor- but no if you shoot JPG on your camera you are automatically working in 8bit. (Not so great).

Otherwise- I think the Dave Hill effect is now purchasable in a nice plugin-

Light your photo right, use the filter and you're all set. :-)

Funny huh?

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

I mean if someone can do this from scratch, I would think its easy to paint on top of a picture. Perhaps that's a little what Dave is doing here?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xJNvKjQHv8I

Look at the end result.

By no means do I think Dave's work is strictly painted... I am saying that perhaps he utilizes some of the painting techniques in this video on top of a well-lit photograph?

No topaz, no high-pass, just loads of painting, dodge and burning etc.?

Out of curiosity, has anyone just sent Dave Hill and email and ask him what he does?

Well he is definitly not painting it. Just ask him guys! It's standard stuff!

Adrian Sampson http://www.thetinymexicandivorce.com/ does the same stuff in the UK. A lot of commercial guys are shooting this way these days. It's not painting, it's good lighting!
