i actually have to agree here, some of those shots look like dave has actually took them, and sometimes it's not just about the processing but the overall story being told in the shot, i love the way he uses d&b or however he is doing it, if dave put some of those shots on his site i would never guess that he didn't create them, also agrred that some are a little over the top but there are a few that, imho, hit the nail on the head in regards to daves style.

Something about the DB he does is...off somehow. Often it looks fine, but there are times (especially on legs and hands) that it looks very fake.

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

Hey guys
Yesterday i had a promoshot with some Rappers here in Mannheim / Germany
Cover-small.jpg

If you like to know someone about the lightning or post productiong let me know.

The main thing was the lightning with 3 flashes. The characteristic of the picture depends of the persons, the location and the outfits.

These points with the perfekt lightning and the post production give a special style.

By the way... i dont like to say my pictures look like Dave hill. I do the pictures like i like

Sorry for my bad english
