Ever since I was a child I have been fascinated by the essential unreality of the mind.
(Not my words - generated by Artybollocks ... but they fit my world view perfectly, so what the hell - I thought I'd add them!)

Follow your own path; following someone else's path will only lead you to their destination or where they want you to go.
(Those are my words - thought of them the other morning, and it seems appropriate for the photographic journey Smile)

Two photographic thoughts that I'm trying to cement into my head at the moment are (1) "The poor concept, perfectly executed, still makes a poor photograph" (Misha Gordin) and (2) "Technically poor images are like poems written with poor grammar - they may have volumes of insight to convey, but they have difficultly doing it successfully" (Angela Farris Belt). I may have a way to go, but that's what I'm aiming for ...

I am rarely satisfied with anything I produce and always feel it could have been better. I've got the soul of an artist and the post-processing skills of Luddite, although they are slowly improving. More recently, my interests are definitely leaning towards compositing and creating surreal imagery, so my Photoshop book is rarely far from my fingertips and I'm doing my best to learn what I need to in order to produce what I want to.

Apologies Alan - hadn't realised you'd commented on my PF! Anyway, I'd guess Adams came first ... born in 1902, whereas Gordin was born in 1946 ... Mind you, I think Ansel Adams' way of expressing the quote is a little more down to earth Grin

Like your portfolio. Some very nice things.

"The poor concept, perfectly executed, still makes a poor photograph" (Misha Gordin),

That's an interesting quote.
....Ansel Adams famously said:

"There's nothing worse than a sharp picture of a fuzzy concept."

I wonder who came first !!! Grin

Hello Tanya, I have just seen some of your work and its pretty stunning all round...nice!...maybe ille be that good one day?

Thanks for your feedback on Ghost 2 and i agree the left hand could do with a little more transparancy, however at it is a single Jpeg shot, the PS programe 'guesses' to a degree what should be transparent and puts it in the shot....you simply tidy up the image at the end....in this case the left hand has a solid background and difficult to achieve full transparancy :-( i may have to re visit the image and have another go?

I only had a few minutes at the end of the shoot plus the model was getting 'itchy' regarding a couple of drunks looking on so the poses i wanted were a bit rushed, therfore anyone trying this technique should perhaps plan very carefully about the pose AND what background they use as to how effective the overall Ghost look will be like at the end.

Happy Snapping Tanya....pixeltrix

Thank you both for your kind comments. It's a shame with the landscapes really, as they're scans from slides that I did many many years ago - so both size wise and quality wise, I didn't really know enough when I scanned them to do them better. One of these days I'll go back (or somewhere else) and start doing landscape-type images again, but I don't get out much these days unfortunately!
