Hill 07/27/2009

David Hill is an amazingly creative photographer. His image have a extreme PP look. But if you observe, you would notice that the lighting on his subjects is excellent. His lighting makes it possible for him to create his unique style.
I tried my hand at it with some old photos. Surprisingly I found a new technique to get intense b/w images.. The images arent polished and profile ready. Its just an example.


Some of the images taken when I was in India. The shots of the smoke was taken using an external flash with an reflective umberella using incense sticks and cigarettes(but I dont smoke). The shots of the water droplets were taken with a straight-on off camera flash.

Watching Zack Arias's Onelight DVD. The guy is a master of lighting.... The simplicity of his technique is very appealing. No zone systems, no light meters, all manual.
