Day & Night

9.20.2011

Have you guys heard of Gizmodo's recent Day & Night photo challenge?  I'm still trying to figure out how, exactly, this was accomplished (other than the obvious shooting in the same spot at multiple times of day) but I simply love the effect.  I first heard about this technique when I read an article recently about Stephen Wilkes.  He has some of the best Day to Night photos I've seen:





Not long after reading about Wilkes' project, I saw the photos from Gizmodo's competition.  Here are a few of my faves:






I get what to do in actually taking the photos but I can't figure out the post-processing techniques.  Granted, I'm not the most advanced PhotoShop user but I can usually figure different techniques out after a few tries.  This stumped me though.  Any ideas?

  1. If I were to try it, I'd probably start by screening one layer into the other?

  3. Wow! Those are incredible shots. I'm loving that very first one with the ferris wheel. I have no idea how you would do that in Photoshop, but if you figure it out let us know. (:
