It's the cover of the magazine. At the bottom is Dave Hills picture from Treasure hunt serie. And yes, the interview is in the paper not on the web. Shame, but i thought to back order that magazine because its last months issue. Does someone own that mag? is it worth 5pounds?

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

I find it funny how people insist in doing what they call "the dave hill effect" with photos that look nothing like something Dave himself would shoot.

It's like saying "hey, look at my driving, is my Formula1 driving style getting better?"... when u got a Daewoo.

I think most people here are realistic enough to understand they won't duplicate the Dave Hill style of processing/effect. I think most people are simply looking to find a means to develop their own process and style. i think it's more about sharing ideas and techniques more than anything else.

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

This was my first attempt, it was long time ago, i was not sure to go with Dave Hill or with HDR, but at the end i didn't waste time to process it more, so here it is:

After 2:

Again, it is not so great, so i will try to improve more one day if i have people or models [interesting and interested] to play with.
