Creating a piece representing the natural wonder humans exhibit was a bit of a challenge. But by combining three images in Adobe Photoshop I was able to produce this ‘wonder cave’.
As a species we have always aimed for the step above us. When we where in caves, we wondered what was outside of the cave. And, now as we’re on the edge of truly exploring our neighbouring planets, it is time to wonder what is truly out there around us. By daring to dream, we dare to wonder what is possible.
This is what I aimed to capture in this piece. By, combining the inside of a cave and the galaxy around us, it shows where we begun and where we aim to be. Always looking forward to the next step.
The process to create this piece, it primarily consisted of layer masks and adjustment layers to create the darkened look of the cave. After getting these correct, it was a matter of the placing in the people which was once again done with a layer mask.
I really enjoyed making this piece, it was a nice change from making the double exposures I’ve been doing recently. What do you think of this piece? Tell me on Twitter?
