Here’s a shot I am currently working on. The goal is to make the foreground element (the sphere) blend in with the background. I used Cinema 4D to create the sphere and for the render. I then took it in to After Effects for the compositing. I am still tweaking, but so far I am happy with it.
It is a little trickier than I thought it would be to get it looking realistic. The shadows of the trees really threw me off so I had to use a procedural texture on the light to simulate the leaves casting a shadow on the sphere. I also had to adjust the color of the lights to blend in with the overcast sky. Like I said, It is a start, but I am pretty happy with it.
