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

hi this is my fist time on this site ....
i am a photografer and not very good at post process....
but i think this is pretty close to the "style" your talking about and actually i only did some shapening, blur,dodge and burn ....... most of the effect is done by light setup

o yeah and some liquify for the freaky effect....

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

it's probably due to some curves adjustments! I have tried experimenting with curves and blue channel

But maybe som other retouching stuff...

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

i wonder! How big Hill's photos are printed ! I do not thing they use it for banners, mesh etc.I thing that is an important issue in understanding his work.
Personally i do not thing you can get rezults like that without a small amount of noise from oversharpening.

Does anyone have a link to a 100% retouched picture.I came across this idea when preparing photos for my new website and realize that picture that normally you view in detail , on the web looks better and you do not see the small imperfection.????????????????????????

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

cms: almost every picture looks better in smaller size...But I have tried to figure out a good speech about the size...When viewing a big picture, you see imperfections better...the noise for example...But how near do you want to stand looking at a picture? for sure if you want details, but staring too long on a masterpiece some faults will surface. I saw an add campaign a while back in a magazine with Hillary Swank advertising for a perfume brand...In the magazine(half A4 sized picture) the picture looks very good...But one day I walked pass a perfume shop and I saw the picture on a BIG poster maybe 50cm X 70 cm...The details become clearer...The pictures that are retouched are better of viewed in smaller portions...I have NEVER seen retouchers who show their pictures in all it's glory...

It's like music( i've been a producers for some years as well):

People who enjoy a song for just the song is the target the msuic biz are looking for really! Because alot of listeners doesn't hear the drum, bass, effects or how much echo there is in the vocals or how much reverb it's in the lead melody or even what type of instruments are used! They hear only the song for the song...With me here?

Ok, when I started to produce(at age 16) i was that kind of listener...I was astonished after some months when I started to hear old songs and could break down parts in the drumline, bassline or even vocals! After that every song I liked was dissected into bit's and pieces...Over-analyzing everything...Sometimes we all do! In the pictures as well! We should have one eye for detail and one eye for watching pictures as just a picture...

Hope that I wasn't writing toooooooo much here...if so....sorry

cheers

Gerry
