seriously, you think a top photographer getting paid thousands a shoot does it by using a 200 dollar filter - if you read his blog or any of his posts its quite clear that he doesn't use either hdr or lucisart - i've seen that video and found it very very funny, the poor man is sick of having his efforts compared to a cheap filter.

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

This is a old image from my flickr account.My hard drive with the original is in Shanghai,and I'm currently in the States visiting family.

I start with duplicating the layer using smart blur(for skin) on 2nd layer to my liking...not that much. on the 2nd layer I apply lucis whyeth #1 with a mix of 66. Once applied,I dial the opacity down to my liking. onto a layer mask on layer 2 and brush set at 20-40 opacity and soft edges I paint some of the natural skin tone back. Depending how that looks I duplicate the original layert again and smart blur again,and then layer mask that layer for a second time to adjust the skin some more.

A photographer that I used to assist for says that a mix of lotion and this bronzing sparkle mixed together, and applied all over the skin of her bikini shots works well with this style. She also uses around 4-6 strobes,focusing on really punching out crazy highlights from the side lighting. That shine off the skin does amazing things with this look.

Nice work, zogdart!

Speaking of LucisArt, I wrote a review of it for .PSD magazine about a year ago (it's posted on their website here). There's a better/larger example of the Goth girl's headshot here.
