Another thing it looks like he uses, and I'm not sure exactly what to call it, is a High Pass filter set to overlay or soft/hard light. That may add to the amound of sharpness in the image.

You dont need a expensiv cam for the dave hill look

You need 2 or more flashes and the knowledge in photoshop and placing the flashes

We have a photographer in germany named ondro with a close style to fiscus and dave
Ondro is using a nikon d70

calvin: If it's www.ondro.com you mean? I wouldn't say his style is anywhere close to Dave hill! His pictures are glamour and high end fashion photography! The retouch he does is purely beauty retouch! Dave hill has his own unique style! It's similar to fiscus, but at the same time not...it's like the amy dresser retouching style! you know it's hers when you see it...ondro is good with retouching, but not in the same way dave hill is

@superkoax
Ondro have 4 or 5 Pics in this Fiscus Style
Dont even watch his Portfolio
Watch his Blog
Of course not the Level like Dave Hill or Fiscus
Amy Dresser is a friendly person.... Ask her... Same what i did
She work really simple, no Tricks.
I dont think you can get something new of the fiscus or amy style

But well see*g*

I really hope he uses a hasselblad since this will clear up a bit of what I think...But some of the pictures are wideangle shots, do hasselblad have wideangle lenses?

Gerry

He is using a hassy for the big jobs.Like all photographers he has different cameras for different jobs.All important jobs he does it with Hassy.One of his secrets is that he uses power generators on location and so he has plenty of power and can close the aperture more.But i consider that he has a talent to see perspectives, angles, lines etcccc.The lighting he uses is not a secret... every experienced photographer can tell you few hints regarding light.
He light his subjects in a way that is useful in Photoshop to create volumes and depth.HIS PHOTOSHOP WORKFLOW WOULD BE NICE TO SEE !!!!!!!

cms: his workflow would be great to see! about the lighting it's nothing spectacular...But look at the videos! I don't see any hasselblad cameras there...It's only canon, but have only seen it from distance in the vid..maybe a Mimaya?

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

Hi Gerry,

I'm with you to demystification of Dave Hill, IMHO CMS has right, the matter of DH scenes: details -as i see- and surelly he uses some of the HDR techniques. May be he doesn't want to show everithing about his work, showed a canon on the werk to let us thinking about: how did he do by just a canon??!!! But what i really like in DH works that he can imagine the whole and does it from parts.

sorry about my english
