Thread: Failed exercise

  1. #1

    Default Failed exercise

    Trying to achieve some Dave Hill's look,
    spent 2 hours with PS but unable to achieve what i wanted.
    playing with high pass, blurr, noise, USM,
    here's the outcome.
    Any expert care to share?

    I think the only expert on this is Dave Hill himself! It's a difficult look to try and replicate.

    I've seen some design house doing well with this effect, as good as Dave Hill but maybe lack of some uniqueness.

    Nobody care to share?

    according to the artivle, the base images has to have lots of hightlights by using wrap around lightings and the skin has to have shine on it by applying lotion b4 shooting.

    i think its got more to to with the lighting, it looks like its lit from at least 2 planes.

    photoshop plays a part to enchance the image, but the way they shoot and light plays an even bigger part.
