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

I´m not trying to do background, only the model. For this shot I have also an empty(no reflections) background for masking.

You cannot go messing around with S/H if you have not exposed background well. Doing S/H for dark background will generate only big nasty noise.

Thanks man, there aren't any fancy tricks in post processing here. Mostly enhancing the lighting with curves and d&b. i think in many cases the lighting is the thing although there is lots of something more with photoshop in DH photos. I hope there is nothing to do with lucis art.

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

MTMM: when posting a picture in this dave hill thread, you should know that we judge it on the dave hill effect...backgrounds in the dave hill pictures are always crisp and well exposed. That's why I gave you a heads up...I think that this picture would benefit from crisper and lighter background not necessarily the background you are using here, maybe something more from the streets...

BTW, I just messed around with the picture to see how the background worked out I don't think it was that bad...some pixel noise, but maybe with a better background

3 Now while this looked very nice on the clothes, it totally messed up the face.
So reopen the image in camera raw, play with the adjustments until you get the
look of the skin as you like.

4 Drag the Skin layer onto the cloth layer, add a black layer mask and paint in the
skin, where needed.

5 Then some basic dodge n Burn.

6 Posterize edges, the values at 1,1,1, and paint in where needed.
interesting technique, but you are right about the skin, it really looks rather harsh...

i was messing with your photo dex.i couldn't believe how easy it was when just messing with curves and what not to get this effect.my shadows were a little too dark but i am getting the hang of doing this.i am just having trouble with the eye like always.i still have to get the hang of the layer mask.i am getting there though.
