Re: The demystification of Jill Greenberg!!!

The PWL layer isnt much to look at, but here it is ... ( there is a Amy Dresser .psd file somewhere on this forum, its a better source for PWL layers ).

Dude...awesome shots.
Care to elaborate on lighting setup and post-pro?

Really cool stuff.

Re: The demystification of Jill Greenberg!!!

Thanks. Strong backlights to get edge highlights. Dodge and burn with PWL to add some contrast and shine. See previous post for the PWL. And some usual cleaning up, of skin etc.

Re: The demystification of Jill Greenberg!!!

PELLE: Thanks for sharing your technique here! I really like it! It gives me confidence to see I'm on the "right track" when trying for my highlights as well!

Captainhook: Nice picture, the blue background is nice, but it lacks a bit of stronger highlights and a better skin color correction ...

Jill also many times uses a Big octoBank behind her and a Ringflash on her lens.. Pretty sure one is for fill...:+}
In any case she was on like CNN or some program like that I saw on the net and she was using this style.
2 Kicker/side lights,hairlight above and the frontal light like I explained above...:+}
Snook
PS. and of course a lot of retouching.!!

There are, and I appreciate them...but being very new to retouching, it's hard to get a sense of some of the specifics. I realize that everyone probably has their different variations to the end product. I loved pellepiano and captainhooks versions...they looked great! I'd love to read a tutorial if anyone has one or would want to write one, and of course, I'll take any hints anyone has.

Thanks!

Well as it says in the original post, without proper lighting, it's pointless to even try.

But yeah after that a painting with light layer helps, as shown above.

I can light. I just don't know how to post process that well.
