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

Hi,
I am a new member of this forum and comming from Germany so please excuse my bad english.

I am a fan of this "high contrast images" and i love the work from Dave Hill but also from Calvin Hollywood.

A few steps ago I fond realy nice original images which I can transorm in a "FineArt"

none of us will probably have the lights that DH uses and most of us don't own the Lucisart plug-in...

I bought Lucisart and and after trying it on different images i really don't think that he use this to get his result. i have mixed result with it. It's hard to get consistant result with it. on some images it's good and on some it's bad. it work's best with under exposed images.

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

I have made some progress in dismantling this technique, although it is not 100% yet. I have found that it is really all about the lighting. There is a lighting technique that is called "surreal lighting". This creates 90% of the look for me. Then it is just some tedious retouching, and tons (and tons) of adjustment layers in photoshop.

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

Ive been absolutely disappointed with this entire thread. Hill does not use lucis art. its all about his technical work he's learned, thus becoming a PROfessional photographer. Techniques, we all need to think learn about, compositing, stuff that you learn to become a PRO. Everyone is hung up that Hill's style can be accomplished in an hour. Im not even near pro, and I spend 3 hours per photo, minimum. Its an art, not a plug-in, that makes his work so great. The guy above me is one of the first people ive seen use their brain, and I like your lighting.

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

Oh well, I've watched this thread go on for a while, so I thought I'd inject a little more interest and hopefully some inspiration.

There are some guys who have Hill style lighting and I know that there is definitely some retouching;

For Example Taylor has done it. Kristof has done it

Some nice techniques discussed here , in which Taylor is an active member. In fact, check out the photo pool there. Some awesome photos (and some not so awesome of course).

zogdart, remember you can use different LucisArt effects on different layers, combining them with blending modes, transparency, etc. Maybe this will help your results some.
