Another transparent 'desktop', this time on my iPod touch.
To all visitors from Smashing Magazine - HELLO!
Just a quick note - this transparent screen was created by holding the iPod and working out a good holding position, then removing the iPod without moving my fingers and taking a photo of my empty hand, then editing that photo in Photoshop, cropping it down to the exact dimensions of the iPod touch screen. I then loaded the photo onto the iPod touch, set it as the wallpaper, held the iPod the way I did originally and took another photo with my fingers aligned exactly right so as to 'sell' the transparency.
This was my first attempt at a double transparent image. I liked the idea of seeing my hand in the iPod Photo. I meant to have both screens in focus, but when I saw hot his turned out, I decided I liked it this way. You can see my second transparent screen image i the background that I just posted as a stand alone picture.
Came across the idea again and now with my Rebel XT, gave it another go.
Now I'll know when some pesky spider walks by...
This was my first attempt at a transparent screen. The apsect ratio is off on the background and the colors, ewww, just awful. Good lighting is key
This is using a slightly different technique. Note the brightness adjustment for the terminal window.
In London. My first attempt at the famous transparent desktop. :)
It would work better in daylight, though...
Not bad, although my phone's crappy quality doesn't help. :/
I was bored and had a little fun with my computer and camera this day... There are some amazingly good 'transparent desktops' out there but I'm still rather fond of mine.
A mashup of two popular phenomenon: transparent desktops and self portraits.
