Tutorial: Richard Baxter: Creating a Stormy Composite

The original idea for this image was a house in the rain and at a different angle. I did try using rain effects at first; however, I was unable to get the results I wanted and so gave up the idea completely, settling for a dark and wet landscape instead. Next, I needed a house, and so pored over my millions of personal stock images to find what I wanted. I didn’t find the angle I wanted, but the house I did find was better than my original idea, as it was falling apart, thus giving a more interesting feel to the image that I hadn’t quite imagined at first.

Image Preparing the Shot

The old house was photographed in a field, which I could not access from the road, and so the only image I had of it contained foliage in front of the house. This had to be removed in Photoshop using the Clone tool, and, essentially, I had to make up parts of the house using the Clone and Brush tools.
