Well… okay… sometimes it isn’t… but still being in the “starving artist” phase of my photography, MOST of what glitters around here is faux.
The challenge for me as a photographer, is to make WHATEVER I’m photographing appear as fabulous as possible. Sometimes, this can be accomplished with great lighting, creative perspective and/or some post-processing manipulation in Light Room. I prefer to keep a degree of realism in all of my work… but it’s a great compliment if the viewer is moved to do a double-take!
With a little artistic interpretation, the real can be as unreal as the faux is real! *grins*
Incidentally, you can see more of my work on my website: Love-N-Life Studios
I’m always accepting requests for commissioned work.
