lucis art isn't close...if you compare the dave hill effect and the lucis art effect...it's fragments of similarities, but the dave hill effect is much, much,much cleaner...

i wouldn't say that it isn't close... plus, I'm pretty sure that i heard someone in one of Dave's videos say "it's amazing what you can do with HDR and a little LucisArts". so i think he is using it, at least for some stuff.

Belive me my friends..... its more than just LucisArt or HDR.

You have to paint with light.... dodge and burn.

lg Calvin

I dont like to say its the Dave Hill Look.... its just a Look that will be the Result of dodge and burn

Exactly.
That Lucis stuff isnt even close.


Here is my latest work... its not all that Hill-esque, IMO, but some people have said it is.

Prizo: care to share high res of the pictures you posted? I think everyone can benefit to work on these...the feel is awesome, but the technique could be better...but this is what people should get to know and work with if they want to feel the dave hill effect...

I beer is sent trough mind control to your fridge! maybe it's there!

Cheers

prizo: I think the main light you used high camera left presents a problem. It seems it needs to be closer and larger, to eliminate shadows.

Dave Hill uses a huuuuuge brollybox or octobox lookin thing, and often a hard hair light... Not to forget the ringflash.

I mean good start trying to get the wrap-around lighting, but your main light needs correction.

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

Hi Folks,

Great thread!

Last year we were shooting some Green Screen shots for commercial use. Here is a candid I snapped in between the actual shots. I played around with it a few months ago not really trying to look like Dave Hill, but experimenting with the D&Bing and using contrast and sharpening. Just my little contribution to the conversation.

From what I can tell by studying DH's work...it really is in the lighting and the post work is only used to accentuate and 'edge up' the lighting.

So this photo will look flat when compared to Hill's. But I think he uses some of the same techniques. Or maybe not
