@Extreme
I am very fortunate that way. I find that the skies here are just amazing. They keep showing up in the most amazing manner all the time, just check out the same place a few minutes later.

Yeah thats a great shot mjothi!!!

Ok now here is something i wanted to do for a long long time. I wanted to post a small tutorial on some useful fun photography/ Post processing.

So for this, I chose multiple image compositing. Its a technique that started in film, now crept into the digital realm. Well its a lot less cumbersome now, yet pretty tedious.

Please lend a blind eye to the poorly shaped model ...hehe
The Official non-auto Image thread-3364866394_d0d5fcc834_b.jpg

Here are the steps to do it:


1) Find a suitable location:
Find a place where the light does not keep
varying. It is important that the light remains constant unless you don't mind spending more time post-processing which I did.

2) Fix(literally!) your tripod:. I think this is the most crucial step - making sure that the tripod remains in the exact position throughout your photo session. Make sure that even your camera does not change position.

3) Start taking pictures: This is the fun part. Use your imagination and take several photos(Don't worry about bringing them together right now). The composition of the characters will probably make or break your photo. If you happen to be alone(like in my case) use a self timer and do a self photo session. However, I recommend asking someone else to take photos for you so that the composition fits in well (from a third person's view).

4) Bring them together: Take all your photos and put them in different layers inside Photoshop. Start from the topmost layer and erase the portion of the layer which hides the character in the layer below it. And Wola!! You should now magically see a clone! Repeat this step for all the layers. Do some re-touch and that's about it. Your cloned image is ready. Remember that it can get a little tricky when characters overlap each other like in my case. Work carefully on those areas to make the final photo flawless.

And lastly have fun cloning!

sharath a very simply shot, but truly colorful.

Mukul I remember that something similar was tried by our fellow member guyonblackybx(wonder where he is these days) and posted on this very thread. It was a bowler during his run up.

Brilliant shot of the grasshopper.
