The reason i chose the following 10 images was because i feel that they represent my style the best.
I wanted to show off a range of conceptual ideas and creative and techniques whilst at the same time making sure that the combined 10 images worked well next to each other
Image 1. – Insanity
Shutter drag with a rear curtain sync flash
The idea behind this shot was to create an an image for an advertising campaign about mental illnesses. i wanted to create a feeling of insanity. with the shutter drag effect i was able to create the effect of the 2 heads mixing into one which i felt portrayed the term insanity quite well.

This is the 2nd image in the ‘Fallen angel’ series.
