Out of Bounds: A Unique Technique!

PinkPantherI have noticed that on Flickr, there are few styles of photographs that get lots of hits. Everyone loves the way they look and crave more. HDR, Layering and OOB (Out Of Bounds) are a few of these techniques. Well, I decided it was time to try and learn how to do some of these editing techniques. I tried OOB first. I admit that these are quite fun and really do get a lot of comments and tend to turn peoples heads. The out of bounds effect is where it appears that an object is coming out of the picture. This is a great way to let your creativity flow from your mind. The possibilities are endless.

SpearFlickr is filled with photos such as these. I even belong to a group that posts nothing but these types of photos. Out Of Bounds (OOB) Creations is a wonderful group with many of its members willing to help anyone with questions out. Flickr member, Serrator has even been gracious enough to create a couple of tutorials in PDF format. If you are interested, you can check them out here (they are zip files that you may download).


I believe I will be doing more of these in the future. Where will my mind take me next?LeavingReality
