It's All in the Eyes: 100 Beautiful Photo Manipulations

by

The eyes have long been considered the windows to the soul. Photographers often try to focus on a subject's eyes as a way to add depth and emotion to a photo. But there are still only so many ways you can emphasize the eyes in a standard photo.

That's where photo manipulations like those below enter the scene. Some are macabre and just a little bit (or extremely) frightening, while others make us think of fantasy worlds filled with fairies and nymphs. And then there are those that are done just to make the subject appear more striking. In any case, all are inspiring and a great place to start if you're looking for some ideas.

    Escaping the Sunrise and Sunset Cliché400
    It’s a compulsion that pretty much every photographer has, at some point, photographed the sunrise or sunset. Those seemingly magical colours in the sky are irresistible, yet we all know that it’s a photographic cliché. The chances of taking a shot that’s different to the millions of other sunrise or sunset images in the world is slim to none, but for some reason, we still do it! I’ll be exploring what compels us to take dawn and dusk photographs and what we can look out for to set our images apart from the rest.Read More…

    Classic fairy tales, like those collected by the Brothers Grimm or written by Charles Peraullt and Hans Christian Andersen are excellent sources for concept art. In this tutorial, we'll be focusing on Beauty and the Beast, a piece originally written by Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve and popularized by Jeanne-Marie Le Prince de Beaumont. Each version of the story, adapted by numerous authors into a variety of media, has its own additions and subtractions to the original story. Concept art like this gives the artist creative freedom to work with an established character and add their own spin to the tale. Fire up Adobe Illustrator and get ready to design a dark and fantastically detailed design.Read More…
