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

Lol, well perhaps I am a little biased since I work for Bill, but expensive equipment isn't what determines your results, they're just tools and it's how you use them that gives you great results. Bill told me how years ago he use to teach an adult evening class at a college on photography, and someone said the same thing. So he had everyone go to his studio for the next class and let them use anything they wanted. Even with all of that at their disposal, they were disappointed with their results. Bill then proceeded by setting up a little still life shot, hung up a white bed sheet, and used a clamp light from Lowe's and took a beautiful shot.

Mtmm, I'm glad you like the blog !

hmmm...I want to believe you so badly, but I'm blinded by my bad results with bad equipment He's talented allright...But it's all about talent and not equipment when it all comes down to it...So being blessed with a talent and to live from it is something not everyone is fortunate to experience...I'm super talented in dish washing, but that's probably it...I don't think I can get a descent living out of that...

Haha, well, unless you start a reality show about it...maybe join up with that chef one, "Hell's Kitchen". I know what you mean though, I'm pretty artistic but severely lack in creativity except for occasional stroke's of "genius". I'm always in awe of those who ooze creativity from every pore, and I feel extremely lucky to be able to be around someone like that everyday.

Koax, now I did the background as well. I just hate masking so much.

I did take only one bg shot and forgot that beauty dish behind me as you can see from the reflection.

Wooo! Dave has updated his blog and that Ghostface Killah's new comedy book is out now. Only 15 dollar. Some of the shots are at Dave´s website. Cool!

-edit- ordered
