Weekend in Amsterdam!

This past year has been all about getting me and my creativity back on track. Even though I’m not all the way there, a weekend in Amsterdam really brought back some of it. I always forget how much I love just looking at people and capturing a random moment in time. I should really go for strolls more often, and Hey! Having a sister to do the long talks during the long walks, sure helps alot. And photocred to her for actually capturing me in a picture haha <3

This post is not a lot, but its something! And a little bit of something always a good thing right? :)

Hope you enjoy the pictures!

Voodoo, The Progress

I don’t really know where to start on this one. I got some questions on how I made my last post and how long it took in photoshop, I didn’t really keep a timer on it, but I think I spent around 20-30 hours all in all, to make all the pictures that I posted in last weeks post. Then I guess one has to add the 4 hour photo shoot on that.

The items and textures added on with the magic of photoshop, are my own pictures, creative commons and from other collections.

For everything else, me and Nasime saved and found random stuff that we thought would fit into the shoot. Like old cans, jars, candles, plants and other stuff.

 

So here you go, a little behind the photoshop scene!

If you haven’t seen the post from last week’s, check it out, might make more sense if you look at that one first.

In all honesty, with a little order and text you can come a long way. It’s easy to get lost in all the layers once you get started. Just naming some of the layers saves you a lot of time, and I mean A LOT of time. I learnt that the hard way.

Little Big People

 

framesA few weeks ago I was roaming around on the internet looking for inspiration for this project. I knew I wanted to work with people and also brush up on retouching and photo manipulation.

Came across an amazing post on Behance by Photographer Quentin Curtat and High-end freelance retoucher Cristian Girotto, that got me thinking. So I decided on trying to make something similar but older, more rough around the edges with a little twist.

Hope you like it!
