Aggiungere l’inverso

In questo articolo esamineremo una tecnica veloce ed efficace per scurire il cielo. L’effetto si può ottenere in diversi modi, ma questo è particolare perché si basa su una proprietà apparentemente banale che lega un’immagine al proprio negativo. Per capire di cosa si tratta, torniamo a un modello già esaminato. Siamo all’interno di una sala dotata … Continua la lettura di Aggiungere l’inverso
