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

I've been following this thread for a while and it looks like ping pong competition. this thread is not encouragin anymore. people here are repeating comments and not giving real answers. o'kay we do not need final instructions how to get final result.

Hey MTmm as an country fellow maybe it will be good to give an example even from your early stage, not from your present skills. just open a little bit your knowledge a little sample. just go a one year back etc. do not show us your present skills.

giving that information, maybe some people are quiet from insulting you.

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

nyxxie I Dont blame you when you say your too busy to read all 700 plus posts. Most of them are a waist of time and lately the post have become mockery and insults. If you are looking into making a look similar to his. I can help, funny thing is, this style of photography is not a signature of just Dave hill. Its just Dave has "come into the light" and he as made this style of photography his trademark. I would recommend visit his site, and looking at his blog. watching his videos will help you learn how he photographs his subjects. When editing your images, work on getting rid of depth of field. Also make sure colors are over saturated, and your color spectrum is tight, dont allow color bleed, and color offcast. these are some simple steps to get your self on your way to making images close to his style. Remember part of the reason his look is popular is he has an artistic feel to the images. If you look at the images on his site, they are not all done in the same editing style. I hope this is a good start for you.

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

Thanks so much Matthew, I really appreciate it. I wasn't really trying to be lazy or anything or make someone do something instead of doing it for myself. After I read this comment

"I've been following this thread for a while and it looks like ping pong competition. this thread is not encouragin anymore. people here are repeating comments and not giving real answers. o'kay we do not need final instructions how to get final result."

I kinda figured that I didn't want to read through a bunch of nonsense posts. I didn't want to find a needle in a haystack especially when people that have been following the thread know where the needle is. Is it too much to ask for some help?

I will use your advice. Thanks Matthew.

Been following this thread from the start. It began as an interesting topic, pleasant and informative but has now gone down hill drastically. Lets stop bitching and about this and that, and unless we are giving a solution with examples and methods then why bother slatting someones attempts. Peace
