Cosmic Explosion. | Skillshare Projects



Cosmic Explosion.

Firstly, I'd like to say thank you to Chuck Anderson for sharing his photomanipulation and graphic design skills with us all. I remembering hearing his last Life+Limbs podcast with Joshua Davis explaining how he could've been worried about people stealing his 'thing' or 'style' but I'm glad you aren't Chuck! :) 


For my project I was on holiday during the Chirstmas holidays at Hartbeespoort Dam in the North West Province of South Africa and decided to get a few snaps inside the car. I was inspired by a car in front of me overlooking a blank sky and I was reminded of a photo I once saw inside a Geograophy textbook(as pictured below). I loved the idea of a car running from volcanic eruption and making it just in time.

Next I brought my image into VSCO CAM and applied HB1 before transferring it Photoshop Touch where I did the bulk editing.

Final Image:

Finally, I was able to acheive this conceptual image of car driving into a comsic explosion or vortex.

Other Work:

Before I started working on my final project I did a sort of double exposure experiment using the same fundementals I learnt in this class. 

Thanks for watching, guys! Keeping learing, sharing & creating :)
