In pictures: Photoshop art from Matt Walford
Matt is a 28-year-old commercial photographer from the UK. Graduating from the University of Gloucestershire in 2008 with a 1st Class BA Hons in Editorial and Advertising Photography, he now freelances for a number of editorial and commercial clients.
He says, “I use a Flatbed scanner along with traditional photographic methods to create my digital collage work. This involves using the scanner as a camera to capture things like flowers, leaves and grass. I deconstruct each thing I scan beforehand and when I have the digital capture of each element I need, I then reconstruct it in Photoshop and incorporate them with other images to create my weird world. The use of scanning gives an almost translucent feel to the object you are scanning and also a very narrow depth of field, which I love. I create most of my pictures in super high resolution so they can be printed large enough to see all tiny details I have added.
My source of inspiration can come from many things; music, photography, illustration, or sometimes just from exploring outside.”
