If you follow my blog you know how much I love photoshop, and experimenting with the myriads of possibilities and ideas. I have often re-edit my older photos either for fun or just t create a new fresh look. But there are shots that literally ask me to do something extra with them. Some of those pictures not perfect for stand alone regular photos, but are perfect for composite images. I have lots of shots like this mainly warm up shots from photoshoots with models.
Here is an old shot of my wife, I this I took it two years ago or so. I created a photoshop manipulation with it but my skills with photoshop are far more superior now that they were at the time I was editing this image for the first time and I decided to redo it from scratch. The idea was to transfer her into a sorceress placed in some magic surreal environment, with dominant warm red and orange tones, lots of contrast, and I wanted to blend the reality with cartoon-like elements. This image is partially hand-drawn in photoshop. and partially a composite.
Photography on its own is too limiting, for me it is only one of many tools and media that I will use to create visual art. If you enjoy photo editing and photo manipulation and you too think that photo editing is a form of art, then have a look at my private photoshop workshops page.
