Ingenious Father Uses Son to Create Digital Masterpieces

Ingenious Father Uses Son to Create Digital Masterpieces

Have you ever been lost in a daydream? Photographer Adrian Sommeling will let you stay in his. He creates mind-blowing composites that let you imagine a whole story at once, giving the viewer an ability to internalize and translate with their own meaning, in a surreal world.What is felt in Adrian's artwork is his thorough attention to detail and execution: Adrian has a vision and doesn't settle for anything less than his goals. It is hard to find someone who is both this creative and motivated, while also having the skill to produce such powerful results. Take note of the expressions he captures as well as his post production. 

This photographer is a father inspired by his son and the childhood he remembers, he utilizes light and sets up backgrounds to make intricate and detailed scenes, and then photoshops them to perfection. Just like you would get lost in a movie, let yourself soak up every inch of these fine pieces of work. His exceptional work had to be shared:

Great concepts and execution, but I thought Dave Hill did these...

Dave Hill's composites lean more toward commercial projects. Sommerling does more personal work that brings a surreal element to the everyday. Actually, I'm surprised Sommerling is just now being featured here on Fstoppers.

Like David said

Really great work! Most have a magical feel to them, even in the parts that could be just a normal picture. Many have a nearly painterly feel. Love them!

Great choice of title, this is definitely called digital art and not photography.

Whatever this is called it's awesome
