    I know, I know, but I have a client that asked specifically for the "dave hill" look for a set of covers that I am doing for him.

    Just wondering how most people achieve that look.

    it's all about the lighting 1st and foremost. beauty dishes and hard edge lights with some PP work to get that "cartoonish" look using high pass filters, or messing with the curves.

    Did anyone see the Sport Compact Car with the GT-Rs on the front that was Dave Hill-esque? If you look in there too, there is a picture on a Honda factory event where there are a lot of dust spots in the frame. :mamoru:

    When I was a web designer, people wanted splash pages, automusic, animated gifs and walls of text. As a designer it was my job to give them a solid product and explain the reason why what they wanted wasn't the best thing for them. I didn't lower my standards for money, nor did I reject their money. I simply gave them a superior product and made them feel good about it.

    Well... Seeing as how the price doesn't change if I give you a wet pile of shit or a brilliant masterpiece marrying fully both usability and style... No.

    I just got a pile 'o Glamour Shots to scan for a mother who just had her daughter shot with this technique. I'm ignorant so I had no idea that it was a popular style. But yuck!

    Good opportunity to make some money though!

    and I can appreciate that...just like how the OP could do the same but im also going to guess that this shot he wants will probably be used in one/two respects and be over with whereas a website must retain functionality over an alloted time frame.

    since web design is more technical, there is a lot of background stuff people don't know about or see but with a photo, it's pretty clear.

    so yes, kinda the same, but not really.
