Belgian artist Ben Heine creates very beautiful mixture of art and photograph, which is famously known as “pencil Vs camera”. Ben is a self taught photographer and he enjoys making sketches. His work can be considered as half real and half pencil sketch. His creative thinking combines both art and pictures portraying two different things within the same scene. So far he has created near about 40 “pencil Vs camera” images.
How he achieves the result?
According to Ben, originally he used a Nikon D7 to take photographs and a pencil and simple A3 and A4 paper to draw his art. There are four different ways that is used by Ben to produce his art.
First, a traditional way in which he draws a picture and hold out his hand with the matching scenery behind it. Then take a final photograph.
Second, he prints a large picture of a scenery for background and then place this on the wall and hold the drawing up to it. Then a take a picture again.
Third, he takes a picture of his hand holding the drawing and then digitally match them up with a totally different background.
And the Fourth, he uses a computer to create a digital background and add a digitally drawn picture to the scene.
What ever method he has used in these photographs, shows his imagination and skills. If you feel motivated by reading this article, you can post your “pencil Vs Camera” photographs in the discussion forum.
