Fake Skies, Nothin' But Fake Skies

“Fake skies smilin’ at me Nothin’ but fake skies do I see.”

I hope I won’t be haunted by Irving Berlin for riffing on his “Blue Skies”!

Another two examples of using Adobe Photoshop’s new sky replacement feature. I must say, the tool is quite effective. And for those of you who are interested in photo compositing, this feature may prove to be invaluable to you.

For my own set of arbitrary, ethical, aesthetical photographic standards, I believe that sky replacement should be subtle when the lines are blurred between an attempt at representing a scene sincerely and that of fine art photography. If it’s “just an image” that needs a sky swapped out and little more, I try to make it subtle and beyond questioning or further scrutiny. But if I’m looking to do fine art photography, why not slap in storm clouds and lighting? I mean if it’s for art, who really cares?
