Do a search in this forum for "dodge burn" or "d&b" or "Paint with light" or "PWL" and read up extensively.

I´m sorry, but I see lots of photos in this thread with only studio background. Dave Hill is retouching his models by far more than backgrounds, or is somebody here thinking that background is the thing? Heads up koax, you should know that for example HDR will produce very cool backgrounds, but you cannot use it on humans. If you can produce DH-like skintones, then you can do backgrounds with one hand.

mtmm: why did you post your picture in the first place? you can't handle other people giving you examples on what to do better to achieve dave hill? And then you write you don't do backgrounds, well dave hill does backgrounds...so therefor I mentioned your background...

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

As I said, lots of other users have posted photos with no DH-like backgrounds, and that is because everybody is trying to do DH like retouch to models, that is the difficult part of the process. Everybody knows what kind of style is attached to DH:s backgrounds. I dont think you need to remind that to me or to others. So is there a problem only with my photos or what are you trying to say? I can also stop posting, no problem there.

And I did not say that I dont do backgrounds, I mean i did not try to do it in that photo.

Usually I do bg:s.
