I opened up the shot in Photoshop only to discover it was kinda boring…

I had this shot, it was from a split second before the ball hit…
Lets resurrect this ball to add interest to this photo!

Synced the photo’s settings in Lightroom and layered it onto of the photo in Photoshop…

Masked in the ball to right above the splat…

Then I cleaned up the background somewhat…

 

Final Thoughts

I’m trying to get better with these kind of photos so I can add them into my rotation of weird photography.

This winter I want to build a drop machine which will hopefully make these kind of shots easier and more interesting.
