There are some guys who have Hill style lighting and I know that there is definitely some retouching;
.
Kristof has probably come the closest from what I've researched. Taylor I believe assisted for Hill so he should know the lighting setup pretty well.

Yep, Taylor did assist him for a while. He seems pretty outgoing and helpful on the flickr group though. I've had a few email conversations with Kristof, who is also very helpful!

Thanks for the link enigma!

The lighting setup interests me the most.

Seems taylor has copied Dave's lighting setup.
White lightnings and AB ringflash..?

Kristof's blog is very interesting.
Seeing a before and after..
Can we have the links to both Taylor's site and Kristof's blog? TIA.

I got a little curious on this, as I've never seen it mentioned before on any lighting sites, and Google did not help either. What would be main "ingredients" to this technique and what is it supposed to do?

I've also heard it called 'Hyper-Real lighting'

Taylor can also be found posting on the Alien Bees forum which discusses different lighting set-ups in depth. Here is a link to his profile from where you can find his previous posts and examples and, believe it or not, he also mentions his lighting set-ups. (P S: I'm not sure if you have to register with this forum first to get the link to work)

Boy... I'm giving away all my hard work of tracking this info down. It's taken me months to find these links and I'm giving it all away in a few days... lol. Oh well, that's what this forum is about.
