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

The important thing is the light.... the post is just 30 %.

The Scott Kelby way is ok... but not really good lightning.

Light from all sides and some contrast and colour manipulation there

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

Does anyone know of a good workflow to reverse this process? You know, for when I find an image I would really like to use as a desktop but it's had this "stuff" done to it. Any way to bring back the color range, get rid of the shadows, restore the gradients between the huge drop offs between light and dark?
Just basically trying to take a picture that has been post processed to look like it was created in Poser and make it look like a realistic photo again.

Here's my sample...

The main key is lighting. But a whole hell of a lot of post work.

This image was entirely edited using an airbrush, curve layer masks for dodge and burn, and ending with a high pass filter set to soft light.

That photo is great.
You have a lot of nice examples on your site. I particularly like the little boy with his hand against the glass.
