I want to tell something about my way of working.
In advance I think, how the result have to be in the end, before I go outside making pictures.
When I am in the field, I make pictures from a subject, for example a butterfly, mushroom etc. and I make also pictures from some backgrounds, like drops in grass, spiderweb etc.
In Adobe Photoshop CS6, I merge two pictures into one.
Thereafter I make my creation, with using plugin-filters. Mostly I use bi-color filters, blurs or graduated filters.
Each time it is a surprise for me, what the result will be. The picture create, while I am working with the filters.
In nature everything is created so beautiful, so I leave the color from the subject, the way it was. Only in the background I will do the post-processing.
