My art: digitally-altered photos

I have a lot of nature photos and have uploaded some to my Redbubble store. Some are pretty amazeballs, if I do say so myself.

But not all of them are that amazeballs, so I’m jazzing up some of them with a little digital alteration. I was really inspired by how Sara Tepes uses photos for visual textures, and my favorite technique so far has been to take royalty-free photos of outer space – stars – and layer these onto the photos.

I’m also isolating elements by making the backgrounds black and white and leaving the important parts in color.

Look out for more this fall and winter!
