Im sure many of you keen photographers out there will have heard of Dave Hill... but he's so good I'm gonna post it anyway! Born in California Dave Hill uses a HDR or High Dynamic Range technique to the very unique look he gets on his photos. Although his process is known only by him there are plenty of tutorials on the internet of various techniques to get a similar look. It basically involves blending 3 of the same photos together whilst altering the levels on all of them so you are left with one high definition photograph containing lots of information. The end result is a very unique modern look that reminds me of Frank Millers Sin City or 3oo. You can check out more of his work here.
