This is the first composite I have put together for quite a while.
The model was from a shoot organised (and styled) by Karen Boyle hosted at the Saracen House Studios (Andrew Griffiths) a few years ago and the resulting picture has been hanging around for quite a while.
I also put together the background about 6 months ago but didn’t do anything with it… until tonight.
I had a sudden spurt of inspiration and the whole picture came together quite quickly.
I wish I was one of those artists/photographers who creates images full of emotion and hidden (or not so) meanings but… as much as I try, it’s just not me.
All I do is create “pretty pictures” as they say “to thine own self be true” 🙂
A quiet few minutes doing some more colourising of old photos before a very busy weekend.
I don’t know about you but I think this lady is so beautiful and there is so much emotion in her face.
The model is “looking out of the frame” a no no for some people today but, as far as I am concerned, I think the photographer who captured this lady’s beauty, got the feeling and emotion spot on -even if she wasn’t looking at the camera !
This is my first blog (very scary) and I thought that I would take the opportunity of saying hello fellow bloggers and introduce myself
I am a Photographer and Digital Artist based in the North West of the U.K. and have been very fortunate to have gained numerous awards including Gold Medals at International level for my photographic work and I am an Associate Of The Royal Photographic Society.
Okay, so that’s all of the sensible stuff over ……. My passions are (apart from my family) travel and photography which thankfully feed off each other. I am known ( if I am known) for my creative images and I very much enjoy blurring the boundaries of conventional painting and photography and to that end many of my images have a definite painterly feel. I have to admit that, like lots of other creative image producers, my hard drive (and numerous other external hard drives) are full of random pictures which will be used in a montage somewhere in the near future – I live in hope ! I am, through this website, planning to show you how I go about putting these images together so that you might be encouraged to have a go yourself (the more creatives the merrier I say).
I really enjoy helping others to push their own personal boundaries and provide tutorials and workshops in Creative Photoshop and Fine Art Nude Photography to small groups or on a one to one basis – you will be able to find out more about these tutorials and workshops on this site as time goes by
This website will enable me to share my photographic and travelling experiences with you…. assuming you are interested ! We can share the journey together and I would love to hear from you if you have comments to make about my photographic musings. You will also be able to see when my workshops and tutorials are scheduled and also purchase prints, photoshop brushes and textures – but all in good time I am just starting out – and belive me I have much to learn in this wonderful world of blogging – please be patient with me 🙂
I hope you enjoy the journey …. So take a deep breath….. Off we go !
