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

It is VERY bad , but this is my very first try. Me (far right) with my friends. Starting picture is not so good (Ixus) so .... be gentle : )

5 minutes job, HDR with lucis, but with more , more and more work it can be close

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

obosila, thanks.
What i've done with the picture was,two HDR conversions,one normal conversion from raw ,and i blended them ,after that i applied some blur to get rid of some overexagerated details like dark places on her skin or some noise as well,because the model couldnt prepare well for the shot,and after that i copied the same layer with the surface blur and apply to it high pas filter,and to the end some dodge and burn ,i didnt have time to apply any cosmetic corrections .
But i'm realising the importance of the output image,i apply the same method to other picture but with different lighting ant background and the result isn't that good.First you need to get good HDR details,but for this you need to control very well your lighting,thats my opinion (any way this picture was't with good lighting)

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

padiQ: your action isn't very helpful here...The action gives only a global change with sharpening and some other enhancements...but it's not close to the overall effect DH gives...the highlights are uncontrolled, but the highlights in th dave hill photo's are controlled...Would work more on the dodge side of your tutorials instead of using adjustment layers all the time...
