Have you ever looked up and noticed shapes in the clouds? Artist and photographer Lân Nguyen (aka 19.XCV) showcases his playful imagination by transforming photos of the sky. He digitally imposes black silhouettes of various shapes to turn colorful clouds into recognizable objects.
From a rose to a strawberry, each wisp of cloud takes on the shape of something new. Nguyen transforms his images on Photoshop, where he makes the sky “pop” by tweaking the vibrancy and hue of the colors. He then adds a cut-out-like silhouette over the top that transforms the scene. In one image, Nguyen turned a billowing pink cloud into lava, by superimposing a volcano shape onto the photo. In another, a cloud becomes the puffy tutu of a ballerina’s outfit. Each scene is made even more magical by enhancing the twinkling night stars.
