It's called the Dave Hill Effect. (Google It)

It's been mentioned on a couple of threads on this forum, but to recap: -

1) The easiest way is to use a Photoshop plugin. There are several, ranging from the expensive (Lucis Art Pro) to the cheaper. One of the best and most affordably priced is the Topaz Adjust plugin. The good thing about these plugins is that they have many built-in presets so, although you can play with sliders and settings to change parameters, most of the time it's simply a matter of clicking a preset and altering slightly (if at all).

2) The manual way. If you're confident in Photoshop and want to get your hands dirty, check out the tutorial by a guy HERE which gives much the same effect.

You look like you got it right. I have to say though, I really don't like the effect. It looks fake and synthetic to me, with a strange solarizing quality, but if that's what you like, go for it.

Rob, you never stop making me laugh. You should know me by now. My post was the joke and I thought I'd poke you a bit. See, if I would have included a smiley then you would have known. You silly goose. :lol:

A pretty easy way to get this effect is to duplicate the image and then turn the upper layer black and white. Then go to Image/adjustments/shadows and highlights. There you can play around with how much contrast you want to have in your shadows and how much detail you want in the textures. When that's done you switch the BW layer to Overlay. You need to play around with the settings a bit to get the results you want.
But the image you attached in your first post has been photoshopped quite severely, with everything getting touched up and fine tuned. There is no "one click" solution to get this sort of look.

I don't think you could find a better tutorial than this one. The audio isn't great but the tutorial is pretty straight forward and gives great results. I tried it out myself.

I tried to get the effect using Adobe Lightroom and it was really easy to obtain. First time ever i used lightroom and it took me like five minutes to have something similiar.

Cslowik, nice article.

I always enjoy Scott's tutorials and own several of his books as well as a real good wedding book with DVD.
Regarding his book tutorials, he writes with a great sense of humor too. Sounds kind of familiar.

Reviving this thread, it seems...

Has anyone worked out any good way to create this effect in After Effects without having to import a clip into PS, then adding the effect to each picture?

I've done tons of Googling now, and can't find any decent tutorial on how to create the Dave Hill look in AE, even though tons of people have used it in music videos and such! :=~

You can use Photoshop to add an effect to a whole video without having to do it frame by frame yourself...

For what it's worth you can achieve this very easily in Lightroom.

take recovery to 100
take fill to 100
add a little black for some contrast
take contrast to 100
take clarity to 100
take vibrance to 100
bring down the saturation to where you almost lose all of your color. NOT BLACK AND WHITE
go back and play with your exposure and blacks to make the image acceptable
add a lens vignette to the photo and now it should resemble the Dave Hill look.
