While working on films like Moulin Rouge and 300, photographer Catherine Nelson learned cutting edge compositing techniques that she’s now using to make fantastical planets out of her favorite landscapes...Inspired by the Flemish painter Pieter Bruegel, who was known for including several different scenes in one painting, Nelson said she chose the shape of a circle — as opposed to a traditional rectangle — because it allowed her to do something similar. She wanted to take the best moments from a various landscapes and piece them together in one frame.
Photographer Robert Piontek's distinctive tiny planets photography is spiffy as hell. He takes a bunch of images standing in one spot and then stitches them together using software. Sweet stuff from Germany.
