The Lovers: Struggle for Self Love

This is a self portrait about the struggle to love yourself due to outside influences, upbringing or being afraid to embrace who you really are once you lift the rug and see yourself for who you really are.

Winter Soldier

I've been taking a break for a while and decided to get some work done last night. Here's a composite I did of a Hot Toys winter soldier action figure. Thoughts?

Any thoughts ?

This is a photo that I showed in a local exhibit. I never really got anyone to give a critique on it, but I thought I’d throw this out here and see what you guys think of it. It’s a 3 image composite, the background was a stock photograph from deviant art and used with approval by the owner. Apart from that, just did some minor curves...

The Legend

An autoart 1/18 model of the legendary Mclaren F1 GTR. The background was shot here in Vancouver BC, applied some lens blur in post to simulate depth of field. The car seas shot at home with light painting. I just had a black backdrop and an led flashlight with paper to diffuse the light a bit. It consisted of a few exposures then later stacked...

Meditation

Three image composite, the first consisting of a photo i shot here in Vancouver bc. I used a 0.9 nd filter and a polarizer, then used stock photos for the tub and the woman in it. I’m still unsure of the perspective and how the shadows should be like, and for that I ask for some help on what I could’ve done differently here. Any suggestions...

Vegas Rules - Concept Movie Poster (Critique Welcome)

I had the idea for this movie poster after reviewing the photos from a recent trip. My friend wanted a picture in his dinner jacket looking suave and sophisticated. I thought that he looked right out of a 1960s vegas rat pack film. So I combined him with my wife's beach shot and some dice.

The second image is a rework of the original,...

Scale-Model Miniature Car Composites

These three composites were shot using 1:24 and 1:18 scale miniature cars. I have included some BTS photos to show the setup. Most of the practical effects such as fog, snow, and sleet were done in camera. All the stacking and enhancements were done in Adobe Photoshop.

My goals were as follows:
- To make the miniature cars look...

Tiny Worlds: Dogfight

I had this idea of playing with scale and having normally large scenarios, taking place in much much smaller spaces. The still was taken on my D610 with lighting coming from two Godox T685 speedlights shooting through two 60 x 60 softboxes. I then used the camera to shoot a panoramic hdri from that exact location to extrapolate lighting...

Playing in Traffic

Background Street shot, 24mm, ƒ5, 1/500sec, ISO64
Model in studio, 50mm, ƒ3.5, 1/250sec ISO64. Gridded 36" strip lights each side and behind. One light 20º grid just to add a bit of light to her face, above camera right.

AN ANGEL IN MY EYES

This is probably one of the most challenging digital art (photo manipulation) that I'd done. She was the only Greek person that I've ever encountered in my entire life even up to this date. And I got lucky she was the model of this photo shoot. She looks like an angel in my eyes and so I'd decided to create an digital art out of this shoot.

Composite critique

Hello everybody I’m new to the community but have been a fan of fstoppers for a little while now. My photography journey has been really confusing as I seem to like each aspect more than the last. Anyway thought it was about time I started getting the advice of other photography and digital art lovers to try and improve on this hobby. Hope you...
