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

Well, might as well give it a try. I'm sure i'm not even in the ballpark on this, but I tried to get the high contrast that he has in his images. Lotta curve adjustments...

Nice work calvin, that's the closest to Dave hills look i've seen yet! Very Nice.

When you say that you used two lights did you mean two lights when you where photographing it or the two light blend modes?

Is there anyway we could see the before photo? I am dying to see how much of it is from the lighting!

FAANP: The effect is good on the shoes, but around it looks very odd to me...too much of something...
