Using a Curves adjustment layer to brighten the image, will have smaller impact on color. Then change mask to black and paint with white on it.

you can clip a hue/sat layer to ur d&b layer and adj the color shift easily enough. Or clip the d&B to a Bightness & Contrast layer set to luminosity mode should fix it as well.

Hi guys,

I just noticed that the tread is still alive. Here I like to show you some photographs from my last photo session. There isn't any compositing involved and everything within the frame is organic.

By the way I'm writing a blog post, and also a video from behind the scene, about what lighting I used for this photo session. So whoever is interested to find out a bit more about the techniques involved here can keep an eye on my blog

I think your art direction is really good. Your effects work is good.

I don't see thess being a Dave Hill-esque photo though. He lights and treats his photos in a hyper-stylized way that I feel these photos do not reflect.

If I may add a crit. I think you should push your concepts farther. Right now I feel like they are stage actors at a portrait shoot for their play. The flat, parallel background, sparse props, and wide shot all lend this feeling for me. I guess I want to see more ideas in the images. There should be a palpable theme and some type of story going on (especially if they are Dave Hill inspired). Some ideas: move your camera in closer, pick more dynamic angles, and maybe composite smoke, gleams, fire, etc in post. If you are going for stark portraits of medieval figures, I think you should be in a lot tighter and have their expressions and emotions be the hero of the photos. My 2 cents.

That would depend. There's hundreds on images on that page, which one are you talking about, what is your starting image, what program would you be using, which color tools are you most familiar/comfortable with and how many pages of the 164 page thread that you're posting in and is dedicated to the subject have you read?

For Hyundai series, you just apply the curve. it might not be exact as you have to balance from the image you're starting with.DAVE HILL yellow.acv.zip
