I would love a D Hill effect preset...
I have used the Surreall edgey by Matt's and added a Hihppass sharpen on a layer with vivid light and it isn't too bad but when you look close yeah its way off...
Any way anyone got one they would be happy to share ???

Local Contrast Adjust ment

It seem that if you light it right, a local contrast adjustment ( USM with a high radius like 5' for a 5D file, but in this case also a high amount and threshold of ' ) you can get a similar effect in Photoshop. Add bit of desaturation

In lightroom the Dave Hill preset works well ( i used number 5 but had to decrease the exposure by 1.5 stops ) if you add clarity as a local adjustment brush set at 1'' it comes close to what he does.

From a lighting point of view its seems that he fills in quite a bit and mostly makes sure all the edges are well defined. On all of his shot theres normal a strong rim light defining the edges. Mostly everything is in focus. This probably eradicates those strange looking halos you get with a wide radius USM.

Any other opinions about how he does this? I like the style...

As a starting point:

Recovery: 1''
Fill light: 1''
Contrast: 1''
Clarity: 1''
Vibrance: 1''
Saturation: -8'
Vignette: -8'

Readjust blacks and brightness to taste, and the readjust all the other parameters.

Thanks perottol, and welcome to the forums.

I seem to have perfected the Dave Hill look by using a trampoline and some black shorts :mrgreen:
