Photojojo, Horst on Flickr, & creating connections


  • Photojojo, Horst on Flickr, & creating connections


    has a twice-a-week newsletter aimed at sharing ideas for taking pictures. Today's idea looks at adding an object to a background that creates a connection between the two. Their example focuses on a photographer -- Horst (hb19 on Flickr) who "finds the perfect sky or set of clouds and gives them their object counterpart. The cloud shooting out from a bottle’s top. The sun’s perfect, shiny orb behind his ET-like finger. The fluffy ice-cream cloud on top of its cone. hb19 gives new meaning to the art of cloud watching."

    Take a look at this link of his slideshow -

    Realistic Clouds?
    by Jakaleena
    I've seen a few people add clouds to their background that look pretty realistic. One example is on DJ's page in a picture titled "Muscles". I've tried to duplicate the effect, but have had no luck.

    Anyone want to let me in on the secret?
