Re: How to get the Jill Greenberg effect

Erik,

I really like your work but I would not say it is a Greenberg knockoff (and as a commercial photo, that is a good thing). I will argue your MF point as I have had the honor of meeting a few commercial photographers who shoot in styles very similar to Greenberg. While all the photographers I know HAVE shot with digital MF (H3D 50mp, Phase 1 P65+'s, etc), NONE shoot MF as their primary camera. Honestly, most everyone is shooting 1D's or 5DmII's.

Doug Sonders actually has gone on record (well, I am about 98% sure it was Doug, if not, sorry for fibbin about ya bro) to say that he much PREFERS the 5DmII as the Hassey's have too much resolution for 90% of the commercial work he does. He went on to say that with all that resolution comes enormous retouching expenses where as the lower (relatively) resolution of the big 35mm DLSR's keep the needed quality with not much of the overkill.

TimeActor,

I really like a couple of your shots, particularly "Exkursion" and "jetzt hab auch ichs verstanden". I think these two are the closest to Greenberg. Your highlights and skin softening on these two look spot on.

Re: How to get the Jill Greenberg effect

Could somebody tell me, how JG effect is related to size of frame, sensor, etc?? The topic is "How to get the Jill Greenberg effect" not "How to get bigger prints without loosing details" or not "Which equipment is better". Focus on the effect, not on technical issues, pls. We don't need "technical masturbation" (we call it this way in Poland)

I heard that Amy Dresser does the post for Jill. Any truth to that?

What's the purpose of copying others work?

Re: How to get the Jill Greenberg effect

This is like the reality TV shows. No one wants to keep learning after they learn the basics. TimeActor your photos are great you got your photoshop done pack no new cam needed you just need to come out of the circle lot leave the pond go into the ocean. Just my 1/2 cent.

Re: How to get the Jill Greenberg effect

Hello rudym,
thank you!
At the beginning in work with photoshop you see great pictures of others like Calvin Hollywood, Jill Greenberg, Dave Hill, Bill Simone and so on.
I like the pictures of the artists above very well!
Then i will find my way to get my personal look inspired from them. Anyone is inspired of others!
The different between Jill´s and my pictures are the harder contrast and sharpness. I think it is a kombination of all. A bit painted look like calvin, the dodging & burning like jill and the harder contrast and sharpness like dave.

I´m at the end of experimentals...uhh hard work with much time.
This year i will go on and shoot "the right" pictures

Regards
Martin
