Here are some examples of my photo manipulation.
For those who doesn't know what it is - the photo manipulation is an ever evolving collaboration between photography and graphic design. It describes the application of a wide range of editing techniques. ( frequency separation, dodge and burn and collor grading )
Combining certain elements to create a unique image, that can convince even the most experienced set of eyes, requires a very creative set of skills.
These techniques can be used to create complex, multilayered images or to make more subtle enhancements to your work. No matter what your style, the skills for basic photo manipulation are handy for any artist to have in their arsenal.
Because the manipulation of a photo gives a realistic view of an unreal picture, you should have an open mind when gathering ideas on how to get creative with your images.
Photo manipulations are a great source for inspiration, generally because designers are able to express their creativity through various aspects of design.
