When I'm working on new images and Retouching, i always plan out what it might look like before i have even shot my work. Back in 2008 i taught myself photoshop while i was at college studying Photography, as in college they didnt teach us these things so i only had myself to grow from. after a year i master basic tools and creating concept and fine art style imagery. currently 2015 I have mastered Photoshop to where i wanted to be at. we can always make improvements, but i would say I'm at a standard i always wanted to be at after years of practise. My locations are often in forest so i always like to focus on lighting, contrasting between an extreme dark and gorgeous sun flare.
January 26th 2015 Laika Studios who made Coraline, Paranorman and The Boxtrolls Teamed up with Heritage Auction and decided they would be selling 250 achieves from each movie. this instantly got me so excited as I've been a huge fan of there since the beginning. So at that point it was just about waiting patiently for a chance to have one for myself. The Auction ended officially on february 12th of this year, and out of all chances I was able to get myself something to remind me of there amazing movies. I really wanted something from Coraline itself, but i knew there was no way of that happening as, i just simply didn't want to spend there crazy amount of money due to the fact me and my husband planned on saving this year for perhaps are own business or America, so i went for something more in my price range and was able to get one of these amazing head bust from Paranorman.
