This is me in my framing studio cutting a matboard. Faux HDR from a single RAW, tonemapped with additional processing performed in Photoshop and Mr. Contrast.
I spent the weekend seeing what I could do to try to reproduce images similar to those produced by Dave Hill (www.davehillphoto.com). I am not terribly pleased with this particular image, needs some work and had some big noise problems. Of course I also need to get into some off camera lighting techniques if I really want to try to approach the level of quality that Dave Hill gets.
