In 2008 I started with photo manipulation. And loved it. I was lucky enough to find Deviantart so I had the opportunity to use wonderful stock models and other stock images for my works.
It was really appreciated.
I worked with photo manipulations almost every day, and never thought I could stop. And I am very proud of my six DD:s that I got during the years. Thank you
But by the end of 2015, I began to interest in photographing. I had a little canon that was not much for the world but it did not matter. I photographed everything I came across. And felt this was wonderfully fun and challenging.
Just learning the camera properly was a big challenge. After a while, I started buying new lenses and even a new camera. I developed and felt that this really was something I wanted to do.
I might do photomanipulations sometime in the future again, but then with my own photos. But for the moment, I love to photograph models, children, still life and flowers.
Challenging oneself is good and provides development.
