Re: Digital backrounds - depth/seperation?

Hi Jamz,

Like others have mentioned here, lighting, and shadows are very important to creating a believable photo montage. Equally important is perspective. To me, the above photo make the subject look to large, with his head up there in the clouds. A good way to get your subject into the picture is to determine where the subjects eyes would be when observed by some one about the same size. With a back ground like the one above, that would be where the sky meets the ground. If you look at some one that is about the same height as you, typically their eyes will be about the same height as the horizon line. As it is, you seem to be looking down the road, but up at the guy. Moving his eyes down level with the horizon line would make this photo balance better.

Although many might like to email you a detailed explanation, it kind of goes against what these forums are all about, sharing information.

Look in the tutorial sections for key words such as "extracting", "background removal", "masking" etc. The wheel has already been invented. :-)
