Quantum, I sadly have to admit, I liked your pics, man. Those dark B&Ws are really interesting. You seem to be too 'cool' for this thread, though. Keep in mind that everyone here is learning, and some actually know way more than you. If you cannot contribute in a decent manner, you should not be here.

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

so, as u can see, "lucis" is not so important )
1 layer for just 10%

Actually, it doesnt't matter what you do and succession.
You should know the reason why.

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

I am the perpetrator, to remove the post Cypisek, Filip is my friend, together we work in different ways including the effects of the DH, we aim to eliminate all types lucis plugins etc, a lot of work to cost us. I do not see the effect due to long work made available on the forum. Fortunately, this tutorial to set up Philip and ruddy copied, it is very incomplete. Yes it is in life that I'm that bad, Filip "Cypisek" the good ... hehe regards

I personally don't find LucisArt the way that a serious photoshopper will work with an image, but maybe, the result is good.
Have an example of the result? Would be very interesting seeing it

Keep in mind that everyone here is learning, and some actually know way more than you. If you cannot contribute in a decent manner, you should not be here.
The problem is that some people here don't admit their arrogance. I already have contributed in this post. I've said that Dave Hill is quite a newbie in photography but good at retouch and many people here wrote that I'm the newbie. You see, it's like some people here admires so much to that guy (who does exactly the same retouch that Tim and I cannot remember the last name, and many others anonimous retouchers that almost have achieved the "Dave Hill" look or similar looks) that any kind of critique to "The Guy" results in sissy retouchers attacking me with lot of stupid things like "Your work sucks" or "Someone kows the Quantum3Stuidio technique?" or that sort of things. That's why I laugh, 'cause I know what I do, 'cause those who say that, never show off what they do. That's why I say that some people here has too much arrogance to take them seriously.
Coming back to the topic, Dave Hill is not a photographer, he's a retoucher who have learnt a very impressive technique. In fact, you can download all his backstage videos (I downloaded around 15 of them) and all the light setup he does is absolutely poor and basic, so there is no need to think about how he sets up the lights (I gave the same answer to a guy and there started talking with arrogance with a couple of sissy retouchers, then appeared other and another. They seems more like sissy hyenas than big brains). The fact is that Dave Hill sucks at photography.
In one of the backstage videos, he put a wide angle lens, in vertical position on the road and the lens falls to the road, making a big noise of CRACK. I mean, every person, photographer or not will always take care of its equipment and it's well known that a wide angle never will stand in any kind of surface.
There is a lot of photomontage in his pics and you can draw many conclusions of what he does by seeing a couple of the backstage videos. The most important thing is trying to look at the retouch taking away the effects and such and trying to back the image to its initial stage by using the mind. The other guy, Joey, he does exactly the same thing that Dave Hill and you can find some DVD's where Joeys explains how he gets the same result than David Hill. However, people believes that Joey is one thing and David is another, but they use the same technique. Those guys have bought the technique, it looks all the same.
It's quite obvious, when you see the way they work in the backstages and such, that they don't have any kind of idea about photoshop. Most people here knows much more about photoshop than those "super" retouchers, indeed, but most of the people here doesn't know how to apply their knowledge. Ask to Dave Hill, Joey or Tim what's a sensel, or how works the DeGrunging or what's really does the HighPass Filter. I don't think they know the answers, but most people here do.
Dave Hill and such just bought a technique and that's all. Just looking at his gallery you will find there is nothing more than the same effect applyed over and over again (which needs, of course, the same lighting set up) and that effect is just one of the huge amount of possibilities achievables inside Photoshop. aIt's pretty obvious that Dave, Joey and Tim only knows what's needed in order to achieve that overrated effect.

Well, be prepared to read a lot of critiques from the sissy retouchers... I'm going for some popcorn XD
