The Ultimate Photo Manipulations of Erik Johansson

I started using Adobe Photoshop way back when I started also my first job. I was a network admin that time and its not inline to use a graphic software during working hours, but I was then like you that pay less attention on your job and do other things that sometimes a reason why you were called by your boss first thing in the morning.

The first Photoshop skill that I’ve learned is photo manipulation… Turning a certain celeb picture into alien like picture. That was when I was still starting to explore the power of digital imaging.

And now,  I want to share with you an ultimate daily inspiration to take a great idea on your next photo manipulation.

Erik Johansson, a young and very talented artist from Gothenburg, Sweden. He owns a Canon EOS 5d mark II, Canon EF 24-70/2.8L USM, Canon EF 50/1.8, Canon EF 17-40/4L USM, Elinchrom flashes that he abuses for taking photo and later apply a great photoshopping skills to produce a stunning product of photo manipulation.

Here are some digitally modified photograph from Erik Johansson, and I thank Erik for giving me the permission to use his photos here at orphicpixel.com.

      • yhen says:

        kuya i have a question…

        di po ba nadedefeat yung purpose na naging photographer ka if gagawan mo ng manipulations ang shots mo. i know enhancements are good pero if may manipulations its something different na db? pwede ka parin bang iconsider na good/pro in photography pag ganun? ay ewan… basta gnun… hehe

        • Mars / Kulot says:

          i am not the right person to ask na dyan sa tanong mo
          i have worked for two years in photography business… its a great thing to give a final output to the client when it was manipulated and added some enhancement with photoshop

          • yhen says:

            ah ok… hehehe…

            just wondering, kc paano mo masasabi na magaling na photographer if may manipulations db? kc if u are really good or if maganda talaga photos u nid not to enhance it or just a little enhancement lang… hehe…

            ayun lang…. naisip ko lang naman po… pero i admire the creations naman, so astig talaga kaso yun lang bumabagabag sa akin… hehe

  20. yhen says:

    kuya, i already have the answers to my question… hehe… nagresearch?

    sabi it all depends sa purpose ng photographer. if the person intends to entertain at kapag nirerequire ng client ok lang magmanipulate but if ethics ang pag uusapan di daw po pwede yun… ayun lang… hehe
