FLEX
Updated about March 16, 2013
Last week I featured the photographer Blackula, this week I will be featuring a similar artist I often frequent in my collections and he goes by the name of FLEX. People usually take the camera from childhood, shot on film, then - the first digital cameras, etc. I was all spontaneous spring 2007. I decided to buy a digital camera. Over time, started making more and more often ... a few months to understand what to SLR. The money collected in February 2008 bought his first DSLR. Until the spring shot mostly at home. When warmed up, the opportunity to film outdoors in natural lighting. Opened up new opportunities for creativity, began to realize what I was doing, why, for whom. Enter the world of pictures and very quickly it has acquired a different meaning, I realized that it is important to not only capture the moment and capture the atmosphere. Need to feel a scenario happening, to understand why and what is happening in the frame, even if the audience will not understand or will not know the photo should live their own lives. At the beginning of the way into the picture, I chose a fairly complex creative direction in the photo - dark art . Although it started with images of ordinary people and nature. Dark art - is to some extent a vision of the world, my main course now. However, began to receive commercial orders are completely unrelated to the main direction of creativity. It has enabled me to realize now as a professional photographer. world of professional photography has opened for me in 2010, when he decided to evolve towards beauty. This helped me a team of experts (stylists, hairdressers, makeup artists, designers, etc.) by implementing its tasks. Beauty-picture - this is a huge space to work with light photographer and retoucher for - to be processed.in 2011 retouching took Irina Istratova (Big Bad Red) - fotomanipulyator and professional retoucher. It is possible to raise the processing to a new level. Beauty-photography has become a major focus of our work. Opened a new creative direction - photo manipulation. This new art form, which arose at the intersection of photography and drawing. This direction makes it possible to realize a fantasy person with photographic precision. Transfer to Kiev in 2012 was a new stage in the development. Now, when doing photography, still shooting at each learn something new. I try not to stay in the creative development, to encourage non-light scheme, to try new methods of treatment to apply this experience in the professional activities ... FLEXDreams In: Hello! A: Hi.
