Back in 2007, I decided to photograph myself in different scenarios and learn Adobe Photoshop to manipulate my images into one cohesive story. Each day I would randomly pick an idea like ‘Pouring myself coffee’ or ‘Falling dream’. It was like a puzzle to figure out how I was going to make these images look believable.
In the back of mind, I desired to make them move as well. It wasn’t until about a year ago that I decided to give it a go. I used split-screen in Premiere Pro and After Effects for more complexity. Now that I feel more confident with this series of surreal portraits in stills and motion, I would like to document others in a scene. I only used myself because I am with myself at all times and it is hard to find people who understand 90% is showing up. Anyways I will be working on a new series that won’t involve a selfie. I imagine this concept to be used for commercial campaigns. Another reason for me to branch out to other subjects. Well, that is all for now.

Thank you. Till the next creation.
