Matt Hoyle - Painterly Effect

I've been looking over similar threads and haven't really found anything on this guy's post processing.

Re: Matt Hoyle - Painterly Effect

I wouldn't say his work is strictly "Painterly" just good clean retouching and extensive use of Dodge & Burn, he also does a lot of compositing for backgrounds and elements in the image. Good controlled lighting is his key here...

Maybe you could link to an image in particular that you want some info about?

Re: Matt Hoyle - Painterly Effect

also I'm really curious on who retouches for Chris Crisman, and how they retouch his photos, here's his work.

Re: Matt Hoyle - Painterly Effect

I love Chris Crismans work and retouching that goes into it, not such a fan of Matt Hoyles style as some of it looks over processed, but hey, it's all subjective.

I would say the first set of links are a combination of (take your pick) HDR,Channel manipulation, good colour palette, selective sharpening, Topaz (yicky). It's probably one or none of these (certainly not the latter)

The second set of images are just good photography, great subjects, fabulous colour palette, sweet retouching. I am not sure how much is done in camera and how much is post processing, but the muted colours suggest a pushing of the blues and green in channels and a saturation/vibrance adjust. Also some of the images are clearly composites, bringing the foreground subject sharply into focus.

Re: Matt Hoyle - Painterly Effect

Yeah Crisman's work is way more polished than Hoyle's, in both tone and colouring, yet both retouchers likely use very similar techniques and approaches. I don't think Crisman would reveal who his retoucher is for fear of blowing up her inbox

Other than good lighting to start with, looks like Hoyle's images use a lot of multiple conversions of the Raw file to maximize dynamic range then various midtone sharpening and local tone adjustments. Search for Calvin Hollywood tutorials and techniques for that style.

Crisman's work I would consider "Painterly" with much smoother tones and proper use of shadows, also good finishing of colour contrast. Here's a recent thread here at RTP on Crisman -

Re: Matt Hoyle - Painterly Effect

Sorry for the bump was just re-reading this before I went into photoshop, what did you mean by multiple conversions of the raw file? and another quick question what way would be the best way to go about sharpening, I've been using unsharp mask but not really huge on the outcome.

both are described here;

scroll down to;
The Double RAW Conversion

& for sharpening read the "Freaky Details" part
