"What more can I say. Your work is very thought provoking, but in all honesty I start running out of words (and time) when it comes to critiquing your beautiful work and style. I do feel that the black element, flowing out of the dress, almost looks…"
This is a fine art composite created with the photo of the children and I loved the way the little girl looked back, combining it with the background that I created using brushes in Photoshop, I think it tells a story
This is a fine art composite created with the photo of the flowers taken with shallow depth of field and very low angle with the photo of the model with slow shutter to create movement and mood, to tell the story...
Bio... something about you. Including camera equipment and software you're using...
I have had a love for photography for many years but more recently a particular interest in art photography to create unique photos. I had a creative vision to not merely capture a realistic rendition or mere representation of the subject, but aim to produce a more personal, maybe evocative or atmospheric impression with my photos that might go beyond realism. My intention is to create an aesthetic image that might convey something personal, maybe an emotion, while at the same time express something universal. I have a special interest in conceptual photography, and often take photos to use in composites to create an work of art or symbolism which can be interpreted in many different ways.
The diverse genres of my photography all have a fine art feel. I also have a special interest in editing with photography and design software and see it as a challenge to study the techniques to create the effect that I would like in my final image.
I started a photography business with the name 'Pia Lux' which is the Latin phrase for 'Loving the Light' and is the essence of the way I
see photography and create art photography as I do...
Hi Charlaine, just wanted to know where did you learn to edit, or get your techniques? I know youtube has a lot of interesting stuff to learn but I am not even sure where to start looking or what to type in? I love the brushes and art effect your photos have and would love to try something similar. Your photos are breathtaking. If possible, can you maybe shove me in the right direction?
