Fine Art Photography

Digital photographs created by stitching up to a hundred individual exposures together. Post-production using Adobe Photoshop gives the images a painterly, artistic feel.

Myth

I created a design using a free tool called GIMP that can be used by anyone in the world, and took full advantage of its features. The idea is to be able to make any graphical design in a genre without the need of purchasing expensive software for image editing. I believe it will be an opportunity for the young people who could learn form this design that buying the software for image editing might be substituted by usage of free programs and tools that will give as much possibilities for great designing.
