“The Channeling Magritte series evolved from my illustrative portraiture series. I use both Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop with my photo retouching. The digital background image was photographed first, then completed with Adobe Photoshop prior to photographing my self-portrait in the studio. I used my Apple iPhone6s, employing the Sony Play Memories App as a transmitter to operate the Sonya7r2 camera and to direct my pose. The final composited image was designed and completed using Adobe Photoshop.”
