What was this image shot with?
Camera: Nikon D5100
Shutter Speed: 1/320
What was this image taken for? (Personal, event, etc.)
I took the shot for pleasure, out specifically to shoot. I’ve been working on a lot of photo collages so I focus on textures and patterns and then layer with landscapes or cityscapes.
How did you post process this image?
This is three layers: rust and chipped paint, train tracks, and telephone wires in a field. Layering was done post shooting in Photoshop CS5.
Who are some photographers that inspire you?
What type of photography do you enjoy most for personal and professional projects?
These collages are what I am currently focusing on with my work and I hope to create many more. I have always had a tight frame style of shooting and this is a new way to bring my photo hobby closer to being art.
