Dave Hill Effect!!

Hi guys,

This is my first post on this forum so go easy!

After noticing all the attention being paid to the one and only Dave Hill, I thought i would have a go at recreating his effects.

Please let me know what you think!

Re: Dave Hill Effect!!

Hi, I think you got the PS work down pretty good. But I think you should observe how Dave Hill lit his models. He almost always uses a beauty dish a little off center from the top. Two huge softboxes from both sides. And another strobe from the back for a rim lighting effect.

Now if you don't mind giving us an idea on how you did the PS work, that would be great.

Re: Dave Hill Effect!!

nice portrait, the dave hill effect isn't quite there yet...I woul dwork on getting texture in her jacket/morning dress/whatever This will add more dave ill effect since his texture is very good...her hair doesn't hav ethe same structure in highlights...The feel and emotion around the picture is dave hillish, but this is 2 out of 6 stars!

Re: Dave Hill Effect!!

I checked DH's new portfolio -what is new for me- wow! again, he's serious in lightning as we know already, I've checked his blog, there is a jpg what he took at Coney Island, that's about 7000*5000px, what is the base that hyperdetailed looking, I've recognised at the behindthescenes section his team use lots of type of lightsources so that could be a pleasure to work with his picts because he is in masterclass of photogrphy, what is the other cause of his 'secret'

Hi Longside1... You Dave Hill inspired photo in my opinion is SUPERB! The lighting is wonderful and although it doesn't have the full DH rim light effect, it's still excellent in it's own right. Fab model, colour sat and composition... I would be very, very pleased with this one!!! :-)

Re: Dave Hill Effect!!
