Hello. 31st March and number ninety in the ongoing 365 image mega series.

Four images taken tonight at home.

The four pics were placed together, partially erased and reduced in various opacities. Converted to black and white, levels and contrast adjusted and a high pass filter layer was added. Then four texture layers were added and erased in places, blended with different blending options and at varying opacities.

Canon EOS 20D / Canon USM 28mm-105mm lens.

I’ve been taking photographs since 1997 and I still love it. After a brief dislike of photomanipulation I now use Photoshop extensively on a majority of my work. People are my favourite subject and I’m always on the look out for new models, so drop me a line if you’re interested! :)

    Browsing the front page of Epic Photographer’s Association this one struck me as a particularly epic image! This is incredibly powerful… makes me think of slaves reaching for freedom. Great work! I love it!

  • Thank you. :)

    This is a very striking image, Jamie. The hands look as if the owners are in agony. The work you did has produced a very powerful, emotive image.

  • Thank you, Jan. :)
