My New Gallery, "Altered States"

I've always wondered to what extent does one edit an image to the point that it's no longer really thought of as "photography". In the past, i've always avoided this. If i sought after some "surreal" qualities in my images, I'd either travel across the country to a surreal looking place and photograph it, or I'd shoot otherwise normal looking scenes in infrared.

With my new Gallery, "Altered States", I've decided to explore some more intensive post-processing on some of my images to see what I can come up with. Rustic, moody, vintage/aged looking, this is what i am sort of aiming to achieve here. I have found that when i combine some of these techniques to some of my infrared images the results are pretty unique.

thanks for visiting,

Welcome, and Thank You

I wanted to start this blog off by telling everyone about my artist website, The miir image gallery, where my online portfolio can be viewed and works can be purchased.

This site offers a for sale collection of fine art photography and paintings by myself, Mike Irwin.  All works on the site can be customized to your liking, (size, print type, matting and framing, and canvas printing) and added to your shopping cart.  Very easy to use, and I encourage all to go check it out, if for no other reason than to tell me what you think - I always appreciate the feedback.  thanks for visiting!
