Oob 2

Back in ought 7 (2007) Terry ( ticktock01) started an Out Of Bounds thread (link) that was a blast! Here is one I did for the Grand Kids:

Lets get something going on this again. It is FUN!

Re: Oob 2

Very nicely done, Rich. Good decision to have the frame recede in perspective; it makes this much more interesting than a straight-on frame would.

Thanks for the link to Terry's thread - I was thinking about it yesterday and hoping I could locate it again.

Re: Oob 2

Great Job. Even the frame shouts "fun". Can't wait to try this effect. Thanks for the invite to post.

Re: Oob 2

So, I have not gotten any house work done today because I have been playing with the OOB effect. This was fun. Here is my first attempt.

Re: Oob 2

Lorell! That is fantastic! Good job! I know how much time you spent on it!

One teeny tiny nit that we always reminded each other about ( and I forgot to do it on my post) is adding a drop shadow to the parts of the photo that break out of the frame. This will give more of a 3D effect. On your work try adding a small shadow on the frame under the left and right side of the railing that breaks out.

This is really a great job and well thought out. Perfect photo for the OOB treatment.

EDIT: maybe try a shadow on the frame under the bottom part of the flower pot that overhangs the frame too. That may be to much though as it looks far enough away not to cause a shadow.

Re: Oob 2

Rich, I like how how you nit pic. Just like with my CAGED BIRD image,when I applied your suggestions, I think it truly improved the image.

I will attempt to apply your suggestions to the "porch" scene as well.

In the meantime, I was busy working on the one below. It is not a good example of OOB but I thought I would post a picture of myself. It is nice to know what people look like. I know what you look like as well as James, James V. , Wendy, Sue, Rob, Joy and couple others. Well, here I am on the left. My sister-in-law and I took this picture on our way to Florida two weeks ago as we passed through the Kentucky Horse Park.
Please note I added the shadow behind our clasped hands!

I probably should not have the shadows going in three different directions but I did not fuss with this one like I did the porch scene. I was doing it just for fun and to post "MY image".

Re: Oob 2

Neat photo Lorell, I like the big chairs! Well done on the OOB too! You seem to have a natural talent for this! I did notice the shadow on the arm, looks good!
I am glad you don't mind the nit picking.

Here is one I did a couple of years ago for the Gallery I was in. I think I sold one.
The photo is from the RIL here by member joeymagpie.

Re: Oob 2

This is good too. I like the green background and now I see what you meant by putting the shadow from the strawberry onto the frame.

Re: Oob 2

Thanks Lorell! Yes, putting the shadow under the object breaking the frame gives another level of 3D look.

Re: Oob 2

Here is one I played with this morning. Not much OOB but it makes a statement!

Re: Oob 2

Hi Rich.... I like it, I like it a lot! Wonderful composition and color. The tilt of the frame was a great idea.

Re: Oob 2

I too like the tilt of the frame and much more about this one. I got to try another one.

I wish others would post some of their attempts. It is fun to look at.

Re: Oob 2

Hi Everyone. Rich, I'm glad you started a new OOB thread. I've recently started playing with them again. Lorell, your porch scene is great, especially as a first attempt. Rich's suggestions are right on the money. Just that tiny bit of shadow does make a difference. It is something that I often forget to do myself. Rich, I love the seagull OOB. Sometimes those OOBs with just a little bit of the effect are the most effective. Here is one that I did a while back. I had a problem with the jaggies around the white frame on this one, but it shows that just a bit of OOB can give the picture a nice 3 dimensional look.

Re: Oob 2

I got an honorable mention for this one in a Worth 1000 OOB contest. I took this while in Kenya, in 2007.
