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

This thread will probably go on for eternity! I learn more and more every day about how to correctly work with composites and knowing your light setup. You have to spend time with your images. I have shoots that I did, put them away for a month, and shot others in the mean time.. came back to it, and that's when I had even more ideas on how to edit them. Even after that, I would spend a couple days or a week or even two weeks on one image, stopping, and going back to it to add something else. It's fun, and it keeps your imagination growing on how to properly use the amazing phenomena that is lighting with your camera and Photoshop.

@tetragramaton the image of the guy flying in the aircraft is something similar to what a friend of mine did a couple of years back - http://bit.ly/cndxHb

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

Hopping in a little late on this one but from my experience you can get this type of effect several ways, however its difficult to express any sort of drama from generic type shots. With minimal planning from a recent photo shoot we considered the final result in advance and shot several images with the idea that we would composite afterwards to get the type of shot that couldn't be captured on-site as one shot.

In the attached example we knew we wanted the group to appear in front of the backdrop that's used in the final composite but the shot wasn't possible so we shot both separate and composited them together.
With additions of shadows, haze and false lighting effects we were able to produce a shot that in many ways is believable but with just an element of not so believable. I think whats important is that there's a certain element of what one wishes to see but couldn't because it just doesn't exist that way in real life.

Shading in areas that are well lit goes opposite to whats real and tricks the mind, contrast in areas that normally are not contrasting adds to this effect.

During the edit there were several attempts to get it right as we wanted it, many were closed out without saving and we started over, don't think you have to continue with your editing process if its headed in the wrong direction.

All editing was accomplished in photoshop with various layers and blending modes, selectively erasing areas with soft brushes from various layers when they didn't add to the overall look.
