I just finished participating in the Blurs and Unsharp Photography: Guided Play 2016 Mentorship program hosted by +Alex Lapidus and his incredible team of supporters from the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers . As well as thanking them for all the lessons and encouragement, I'd like to share a little about the course has affected me, personally.
I like to shoot portraits and I have where possible tried the techniques within the context of portraiture. I already have my own style (also known as my own stubborn way of doing things), so personally it is difficult for me to let go of all the things I have worked so hard to develop over the years. Instead I have been trying to use these tools in ways that still make me feel like myself. In particular I enjoyed adding items in front of the lens that would act as a frame around a portrait. There were three main things that were a revelation to me (meaning that I had not really explore on my own much before now):
1) To create a portrait that is fully out of focus
2) The techniques on Pep Ventosa
3) Multiple exposure in camera.
Of these three, I particularly enjoyed the multiple exposure in camera play. I know that it is possible to do in a composite, and I am no stranger to compositing but there is something so much more viscerally satisfying about doing it on the fly.

From time to time I go on photo walks with friends, but given that I am not a street photographer, I don't usually enjoy the photography part of them much. However, I think with these new tools that Alex has opened my mind to, I might be able to have some exploratory fun on future walks, even if I don't have a willing model at my disposal...

Another week starts with news that we have been published again in Surreal Beauty Magazine. I had a blast working with Rafael and Pharoah on this one. Over the next few days I will be sharing those that made it into the publication alongside those that you'll be seeing for the first time here on G+.

Art. Photography. Creativity.
Introduction
I am an English-born digital artist and photographer now living in the San Francisco Bay Area. On G+ I have discovered a magical community who have formed around the art of photography. 

I help run a Community called Brain to Frame that focuses on how to create conceptual photographic imagery all the way from initiating an idea to producing the end result.
