Photo Inspiration Thursday: The Lonely Pixel
Last week I shared with you a process for Using Textures with Photos on a shot of the Eiffel Tower I took a couple of years ago. It’s a style that I haven’t used that often but has really drawn me in and provided a great deal of creative energy for me.
When I was going through my comments recently, weeding out the spam, I found a comment that seemed legit but was picked up by the filters. I visited the site that was included and was really taken by the imagery that I was presented with by an art photographer that uses this technique perfectly in her work.
The Lonely Pixel holds a collection of photos from Montreal-based photographer Lisa Howarth. Her photos are full of character and mood that really hold your gaze as you examine the play between form, color, and texture.
In her own words:
“I’m originally from Vancouver, now living in Montreal, Canada. I am a completely self-taught photographer. I love spending my time photographing this beautiful, enchanting city which has given me so much inspiration. Seeing beauty in things lonely, gloomy and mysterious, I tend to create darker work with glimpses of innocence and hope. I’m always looking for different textures to combine with my photos and hunting for vintage cameras to create those curious TTV images. I hope you find some delight in the images that I so enjoy creating.”
Definitely worth a few minutes of your time to be inspired by this amazing artist.
