Cypisek, it's quite nice, but i'm not a big fan of such stuff )
The perspective is unlikely.

Both of those images look nothing like either really.
The Lighting is all wrong, The background is nothing. You cannot take a point and shoot type picture and make it Dave Hill..
This thread is totally ridiculous and has gone the wrong way.

Last post here.

S>
It's your choice..
I'm agree about background and etc.., but it's just a try of postproduction..
Nothing about bit for work of art..

Lighting was smtng like this:

Though, I finish posting here unfinishing pictures..
Just when it has the concept and etc, I'll show.

p.s. I agree, that here is serious forum, sorry if it was a little bit irritable..)

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

Sorry, but i didn't try to do Dave Hill, and i said another shit try and i know it is far away, just to make this thread to go further more far.
But if you really want to see something closer to Dave Hill, then ask Dave Hill to send one of his Original RAW files of one of his shots posted on his website and then we can see if we can get closer, if we do have wrong lighting and wrong composition and perspective then we will never achieve his look if we can't do it with right great correct shots either.

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

And the photo i posted is taken by a Pro body, but if that shot loks crap, then we have to learn lighting hard before shooting anything, and to be honest, i am trying to learn lighting these days alone, but i hope more when i travel to New York then to meet someone to teach my lighting.

Try to get over me. This is ridicilous "mtmm this and mtmm that". Do you want my autograph or what? I have made blog entrys about Dave and in every magazine inteview, I have credited Dave. So please, get fucking over it man. You are like some sick stalker.

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

Oh God, I've seen enough. I've joined this thread somewhere on page 50.. We're going round in circles.

I think some of you have produced even more effective techniques than ol' DH, and some of you are barking up the wrong tree. I've come to realize that the answer is not in how he does it, but more in the success of his final image. Whatever effect he would put on there, all the images tel a wonderful story. Contrary to to Quantum3Studio's opinion, I think DH is a brilliant tog. It's got nothing to do with how 'simple' your lighting is. If it works, it works. I do see Quantum's (very crudely stated) point, though.

I'm over this thread. I think every thing's been said in the mammoth bible that is this discussion. Print it out... You could sell it as a book.

Thanks peeps. I'll see you on the other threads.

If that shot still not good enough as DH then i will say DH is not the best and we shouldn't give him credit that much even he is good and talented, with that then all others will be less than him and others just duplicating him when some can be better than him.

Good shot, now if you wouldn't mind to explain how did that like keeping secret like DH then its fine, but it will be kind of you to do.

Let's be honest, is the perspective? is it the subjects? is it the lighting? or the overall?
Now most here would like to get the effect or the look even all the perspective is bad and incorrect, i, myself, would prefer to have that look over the perspective of the subjects from foreground to background in the frame, so let's be more specific, when i try on shots here i try to get the look not the perspective, i saw many shots perspective much much more better than Dave Hill shots himself, so let's not be so critical and we always try to find missing things in all attempts and show that we are still much far from Dave Hill or others styles, so does most trials or attempts here are not good in getting that DH cartoonish or HDR or smoothy skin look?

And again, watching all Dave Hill shots, they are all not in the same look or results, so be more fair and don't just judge that all attempts here will fail without doubt.
