The black paper and vibrant colours in this Photography sketchbook result in a dramatic, eye catching layout. The pages almost take on a magazine-like quality, with large and small images integrated carefully within text.
This preparatory sheet shows the development of digitally manipulated compositions, drawing ideas from the photographers studied. The page includes screenshots and descriptions of Photoshop tools that have been used to merge images together. Michael also includes a gallery ‘mock-up’, showing how the his work would look if hung in a gallery exhibition space. This allows him to establish a sense of scale and show the work in context.
