So, while I’m in a perpetual state of empire building with projects and businesses coming out of my ears - I keep a day job to foot the bills involved with living in Sydney.
I’m lucky enough to enjoy what I do because it’s mostly to do with people and photography. But, like any day job, there are some down times and lots of time in between times to daydream of ideas that never come to fruition. Recently I’ve decided that I should be constructive in these times and also try to keep my creative muscles sharp so I set myself a challenge: I would take to Instagram to create a series of reimagined past work using only the tools available to me.
The first of these series I created recently is called Split Tone and features 9 glamour portraits I have created over the last few years. I worked the images through a process of a high contrast, noir type black and white mix in Photoshop Express and then split tone colourisation with the native Shadow/Highlight colourisation tool on Instagram - all on my iPhone 6.
You can check out the results on my Instagram.
And here is the process that each image went through as I waited for clients or had lunch or made myself numerous coffees.
