Hi,

I got a new role model: Dave Hill, http://www.davehillphoto.com

I'm really curious how to get this effect, the programs I work with are:
    Adobe Photoshop CS4
    Adobe Lightroom 2
    Photomatix


Are there some good tutorials on the net, does anyone got a view tips and tricks?

Didn't the guy do HDRs a lot?
Most of it looks like proper flash usage and extensive general postprocessing.

EDIT: check out all of the behnd the scenes footage: http://www.davehillphoto.com/bts/

that is what I need to know, the post processing. In the footage you only see the shoot.

Hi fellow Dutchman!

Okey, I found out that the Dave Hill effect looks like a smooth version of a dragan(?) effect.
I tried this out and this is the result:

Dragan effect?
You mean HDR with light haloing/poor light smoothing? ;)

Not my style...it reminds me too much of poorly done HDRs. I might like it with less haloing..the spotted lighting is pretty cool.
