Artist Adam Mayster explores techniques of photography and digital manipulation, often combining the two to great effect. Adam’s recent portfolio is packed with images of wildlife, plants and architecture.

I find Adam’s eye for composition really effective throughout his portfolio. Looking through these photos I get the sense that the artist takes his subject matter into account when deciding on what type of angle to use, or what lighting to emphasize. The result is images that have a sense of depth and thoughtfulness behind them.

Alongside straightforward photographs, Adam also showcases a number of examples of his digital photo manipulation techniques. The manipulated images range from slightly off-kilter in terms of color, to wildly psychedelic views on vegetation, animals and even the night sky. In many cases, the viewer is able to see multiple views of the same subject, and decide for themselves which they prefer.
