See here: 90/10.
I think He is shure using "crank it all" method (but not 100% as it was described before), but process skin in seperate (PS part), then use two postprocessed images, then connected and masked (als PS part)... so "crank" works there, where he wants, and just as much as he needs.

Or in other words -> this is how I can get to this kind of result .

Had noticed that photo on flickr too, great photo.

My guess would be its Lightroom 2.0b with lots of dodge/burn and some clarity. And mayby hsl adjustments for total toning.

Dig your stuff Mike, it stands out. Keep it up. Hyvältä näyttääpi.

My take on things:

Lit using four off camera strobes, for wrap around lighting effect. Finished with quite a bit of PP!

Comments more than welcome!

hmmmm...the front right tire needs air...his left foot is stuck in the concrete...overall a nice attempt, but needs A BIT more work on finding the right angle and footwork...Didn't see the DH look at all...Would try on a different idea here...

How much do you think is invested in lighting and misc other equipment? Any idea of the lights used?

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

Actually the lights he uses are pretty inexpensive monolights: White Lightnings, made by Paul C. Bluff. Assuming he has used anywhere from 3-8 lights in a shoot, each light is 670 for the highest model, and 480 for the second highest model, so.. 3840-5360 on his monolights, plus another 1000 or so for light modifiers and another 2500 for his profoto ring flash and pack.

But I can assure EVERYONE the expenses aren't a special ingredient, it just tops it off really.. In the photo below, off of Hill's website, this shot has no special lighting, no special tricks, but retouch work.. No kicker's no ring flash fill.. Looks like a big softbox and he just took a candid shot, but he still made it work. So figure that one out..
