BTW adding noise can cover some sin, not all but can help if used in small amounts.

That and its hard to bring up lower-midrange without generating noise so a good fill light (like a ring flash) will help.

And for the record, I´m not trying to copy Dave, but I have learned a lot from his videos.

Guy in that photo is named Daniel Hill, just a coincidence.

I have no glue how Dave does his photos, so I have nothing to reveal.

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

Mtmm why you keep beating it down.
You keep beating around the bush.
We would like to know how you are getting that Dave Hillish look you are doing..
Does that sound better.
No one wants your exact steps..
Your doing something besides D&B ing and your 3 light set-up
I just saw this response you left and wonder why don't you do as you asked to others so many times and give a little more information.
Like you said it all depends on the subject anyways.
Can you be a little more specific.. you working only in PS. what bleach pass you talking about? which one. Nik color fx one?
I think even dave gives more info than you...:+}
Snook..

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

I use 4 lights and I need more. I can only say what I do use and it depends on a photo. I will not give any details.

d/b
local contrast
local multiply blending
highpass/gaussian smoothing in linear light blending (very effective and clean with right numbers)
duotone blending
local clarity and exposure (raw)
black channel sharpening
color correction by numbers (CMYK)

Don´t ask for details. One thing is a must - ringflash as a fill light, I love it.

disclaimer:
This is valid only today, tomorrow I can use another methods.
