Dreamy photoshop free

Helen Warner is a Belfast based photographer, who prides herself on being photoshop free (She shoots with a Canon EOS 5D mark II). According to her, locations are a great source of inspiration for her and living in Ireland with it’s moody weather and vast landscapes has inspired her work. Victorian themes are everywhere, her imagination is allowed full access letting ideas organically develop spontaneously. Helen has worked mostly online features and magazines such as Vogue. It amongst others and has had two exhibitions in Belfast and one is planned this year in Manchester. Amazing work!

I can be quite scared of my own imagination, I let it do its own thing and never try to pin it down with definite sketches. An idea can go in a completely different direction on the day, I’m a great believer in leaving a lot up to chance. The weather, the models, the location can all bring new things to the final photo. Anything can trigger an idea, it’s just a matter of keeping your eyes and mind wide open. Helen Warner

    i really don’t get how this is the outcome without photoshop! how do they do it? anyways, i love it

    • I was wondering the same thing. It could be manipulated in another program, but just photoshop free? Or is there a lot of make-up and gels on the lights

    • How? I would hazard a guess that the artist spent weeks, months, years fine tuning their work, knowing the tools of the trade inside and out, studying light/shadow, working with models, being talented… lol… Personally, whenever I see work that makes me ask “how”, it’s a clue that I may be in the presence of an inspired artist!

    Some great images from Helen Warner, a Belfast based photographer featured by Chicquero. All of her images are photoshop free, which is incredible given the images produced.
