Photo manipulations By Jeannette Oerlemans. She is a photographer from the Netherlands and in her spare time she likes photography and Photoshop. Previously she drew and painted and was always busy with various hobbies.
But when the digital photo era emerged , the world opened for her. And this is the biggest hobby for her right now and the results are amazing.
Photo manipulations is the application of image editing techniques to photographs in order to create an illusion or deception (in contrast to mere enhancement or correction), through analog or digital means.
Before computers, photo manipulation was achieved by retouching with ink, paint, double-exposure, piecing photos or negatives together in the darkroom, or scratching Polaroids. Airbrushes were also used, whence the term “airbrushing” for manipulation.
Darkroom manipulations are sometimes regarded as traditional art rather than job related skill.
In the early days of photography, the use of technology was not as advanced and efficient as it is now. Results are similar to digital manipulation but they are harder to create.
