Recently I started doing some research to figure out how to make some surreal effects with my photos. Part of this is motivated by the fact that I just did a fantasy photoshoot, and I wanted to kick those photos up to surreal. The other part is that sometimes I just see a photo online and am driven to figure out how it was done.
Fortunately there are AMAZING photoshop tutorials out there. I’ve recently become a fan of Phlearn, but there are many resources for learning new skills.
I’ve been experimenting with old photos to practice these new skills, and this set is the result. These are all of my husband and partner-in-crime Jared Axelrod. I chose to edit photos of him because learning these techniques requires staring at photos sometimes for hours, and just love to look at him.
