This intresting manipulation belongs to my serie which called “Mean while in Russia”. In these sets of images I reflect about current situation in Russia and the rest of the world.
The ides of image was to show kind of stereotype about russians. I think everybody knows that we have bears in our streets. For that manipulation I used a lot of shots which was made by me. In general I use 24 mm angle lens to make shots. I prefer to use in my work cold and desaturate colors. So I decided to concentrate on them. In PS I set the perspective of the field, add some background then I added some shadows and in the end i put my main hero (Russian bear ) to the foreground.
One summer day I was walking around the street and found such a great yard (in St.Petersbrg we call them as yard-well, ’cause of it has square shape). I stopped I thought how I can escape, able to run away from this close space. So I decided to add the helicopter and the rope ladder. I think it is look like the resque action. So in PS I just set the shadows and the color balance settings right, in the end I added some textures over the picture to finish the image.
The idea of the photo was to show the importance of the first step in whatever you are going to do. You should get rid of your scares and fears and just start moving forward. For that manipulation I I used different shots whose were made by me . For man photo I used 24 mm angle lens. In PS I tured the perspective of the sky and ground. Then I added the person to the main scene. Before making any photo shooting around the city I usually do some scketches work on paper to understand how it approximetly will be look like.
photo was made with my own images
In this image I decided to make somethin new for me. I wanted to create some curious situation which never could happen in real lige but only in my pale imagination. For the image I took several shots of submarine, sky, fiels and divers. I like the cold colors so I preferred o concentrate on them. In PS I set perspective of the submarine way and add divers arond it. I added some shadows to make it looks well.
