    So I have small and slightly unhealthy obsession with primary colours and stripped down photography right now, who knows why and who really cares... I'm having fun so mreh! I love the dramatic cut n paste messy feel.

    No idea why I do this but I'd like some constructive feedback anyway, most people I show this sort of thing to screw their noses up... perhaps rightly so! :lmao:


    I'm not quite sure the portrait gallery is the right place, but it started out as photography and got lost somewhere along the way :lol:

    I really like these, the first one especially. I like the simplicity of colors and shapes.

    I like the first one, it has a cool graphic quality to it. The second one seems a bit busy. Definately keep up the new technique.

    Thanks guys, really really appreciate it! I like the first one a lot too but would like to reshoot with more body length in it perhaps.

    Method was generally creating very high contrast and working with photoshop filters, in particular the cutout. Marquee'ing the shape onto a new document and playing with background and colour fill effects.
