Gave a shot at processing with the LucisArt plug-in. It is a cool tool.


Wow - you really went all out with the LucisArt filter. I was looking through your portfolio. Cool effects. The filter looks pretty good on your photos especially the solider and the child.

As not to hijack MAK's thread any futrther, I figured I would repost this here in the OT (original thread :-P).

I used the filters and technique from here plus some NI to get this result.

I don't like it at all...his 'style.' Looks fake, contrived/forced, not real...more cartoonish. A lot of halos, for lack of better terminology 'imposed' realizations, good for billboard work. Just my humble opinion...but to me a very over-processed look.

I quite like those contrived/forced, not real shots

A FANTASY which the intent was/is quite different than his style. No comparison really.

Interesting how you can speak for his intent. What you say about your work, I think is what he's after. Since I don't know for sure, I just appreciate his talent - and can only imagine how much he makes creatiing that art!

This is my closest, and as close as I want to get without completely copying Dave's style:

yea, hes been getting pretty famous

ha, i can never get the lighting down correctly

there is a certain type of light/ effect you need in order for the editing steps to work out

Good ol' IU. I remember being on the IU campus during highschool for some those nerdy Math Competitions. (Did I just say too much?)

Today however I was at the Penn Relays. Didn't see any IU athletes, but I have some pics of some Purdue Women's Discus throwers. One of them almost got me with a damn disc even! Musta been her way of saying, "Don't take my picture, please." lol

There is a good tutorial on the Strobist Flickr group that shows you how to get the look with photoshop.

It seems to me that he combines multiple files that are separately created using individual light setups intended to light each part of a scene individually.
04/27/2007 10:45:40 AM · #190
he usually does composite photos, alot of his things have behind the scenes, its fun to wat ch some and try to figure out what he is up to

I guess you could process the same shot over again, but that doesn't take advantage of the full range of HDR and his results are extreme.

I don't know what it is though.


Couldn't you take set of bracketed shots of the background scene and then add the people and take one shot of them. That way you could do HDR and then dodge and burn the people. Just a thought.

I again just want to thanks Dave Hill for posting to the forum. I hope he comes back and gets hooked on the site! I call dibs on him for our DPL team lol..

Link for a Hasselblad camera kit for sale on ebay, $14k, used.

Love this effect and look forward to learning it! I bet we see some of these in future Expert Editing challenges!

Just to note: I didn't suggest that he uses HDR. I do think, though, that he uses multiple files - though he may process their combinations himself.

buy the Lucisart filters and you can get that effect

I am positive that Dave Hill uses HDR. I doubt that he uses a program such as Photomatix (usually these are pretty easy to spot because of the poor blending of the shadows and highlights), but some of his shots are impossible without overlaying multiple images. He is obviously a professional, and it looks like he has some pretty complex lighting setups as well, but I'd say that Photoshop plays a huge role in his photography.

I'm not really sure how I feel about these techniques. On one hand I think that the images produced by using HDR or similar techniques look pretty good (if they aren't overdone), but on the other hand when it gets to the point that hours of photoshopping are being done to an image, it seems almost deceiving to pass it off as photography rather than digital art.

I've noticed a common theme in these sorts of threads.

Someone wants to know how to achieve effect 'x' in photoshop.

They are told it requires lighting, proper capture technique or whatever (in this case Dave Hill even came on and posted that it's all about the lighting, not HDR etc)

Then a variety of people try to ignore that and recreate it in photoshop.

I'm curious what the big 'elephant in the room' approach is to ignoring the value of learning to light effectively. It seems many many photographers avoid it for a long time, yet it is one of the most powerful tools in a photographer's bag.

No, this cant be HDR. Moving subjects make it impossible. This work is really awesome though. Production is high, and that helps, sometimes his work gets repetitive, but Im enjoying his portfolio.
08/11/2007 01:21:13 AM · #198
Heh. Someone just posted this thread to ask whether this Dave Hill lookalike processing was legal:

HDR-style processing from a single RAW capture can be very effective if the contrast range is not too extreme.

Ok, now I have to try this.
here are my attempts.
