A Individual Choice
Where do I start?
Usually being inspired by music, art, an event or meeting people.I open an image and I play until I get something I like. No revisualisation, no sketches, I just play and explore. If the image doesn’t feel right in the few layers, I stop, as there’s no point in wasting time. The process can take for ten minutes to a couple of hours for the more complicated pieces but no more than that. Every image has a hidden image inside waiting to be found. Working in sets of at least three. It helps define the emotion felt when taking the shots. I don’t record how I do it, each set has to be done in one session. I can’t repeat it the next day or would want to.
I don’t have a set way to do things but let the image take shape. There’s no magic formula to success just hard work. It's just about having fun and enjoying the image making.
