Over the post Christmas period I have had a little time to work on a recent portrait sitting, further pushing my thoughts to artistic portraiture, adding my own vision of mood and atmosphere of an image is all part of the photographic artistry that I offer. This is quite an interesting journey as I spend more time looking at someones images, the more I tend to see, the expressiveness of that person and their personality echoes back to me, whilst I quietly work editing the images, my thoughts are allowed to wonder and experiment with elements that the image behold, to create truly an artists view and feeling of the portrait.
Artistic interpretation comes with camera in hand with lighting and in post editing of images with creative flare, the image below beholds a magical quality and mystery, I feel by my further adding my feelings about the image, my interpretation draws out more of the drama of him.
