Heads up, Mtmm, you should research before you make snarky remarks.


You can actually make amazing HDR portrature. That is, if you know what you're doing with a camera

Does recycle time ring a bell? Try to set up 3-6 lights with full power outside and then take several shots at different exposure without model moving. Mkay, I wanna see that. Somebody here does not know basic fysics.

Uhhh, who said anything about using multiple lights? Or were you just trying desperately to impress me?

Isn´t that pretty clear that if you want to take a good portrait, you´ll need a good lighting? And even without lights(recycle times), sharp HDR is very tricky to do with a moving subject.

What's pretty clear is that

a) you've never heard of continuous light sources
b) you've never heard of tone mapping
c) you believe that quality of light is somehow proportional to quantity of light
d) you've failed to impress me due to above reasons.

a) So you are telling me that if one is about to make a HDR shot, he/she has got to change his/her whole lighting system to continuous light? Very realistic scenario. Hands up who is using continuous light?
b) You are talking about true HDR, not tone mapping.
c) Did I say anything like that? No, so please cry me a river, you are being stupid here.

And of course, even with the huge continuous light system, your model is moving between shots. You just can not take good HDR shots with humans.

Skin tone example:

(Where left is DH and right is my version. Shot and PP.) The only diff is the color tone of the model where DH model is a dark colored skin guy and mine is with a fair brown skin.)

BG example:

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

mtmm:never had any problems with your pictures, or do I want you to stop posting! Please share wisdom and pictures! I'm not a wiz when it comes to photography or retouching I would never portray me in that manner! I made this thread so people could teach/learn others and come with their thoughts and ideas regarding DH! Your last picture with the clown was very nice! Thanks for sharing!
