    Found this pic recently on a random site, thought it was really interesting. Anyone wanna explain how he did it? There's several options, I guess, it just does look cool.

    What you are seeing is the transparency effect. He removed the computer, and placed his hand there, allowing a digital image. He then posted his hand in such a way that you got that picture. The camera he just moved onto the hand is what I'm assuming.

    If you want to see some more, there's 532 in this group. A few are Macbook Pro's, some are Powerbooks, some are ibooks, and some are PC Notebooks. The Apples look the best.

    this one's the worst. you can so totally tell the guy just put his hand up the sleeve and held it before the desktop shot of that hand.

    But at least the dimensions hold up well. And yes, it is quite obvious.

    haha, i remember this picture was posted a few months back and the OP thought it was real... :p she/he posted wanting to know how he'd done it because "he swore it was real!" :rolleyes:

    anyone else remember that?
