Using Blending modes is a great way to present the theme of Vision and Reality. These images come from one of my favorite contemporary artists in the medium. Richard Johnson of Spectacle Photography has been inspiring me since the start of my journey to become a pro photog. In a Facebook message conversation we had, he said 99.9% of his images use some form of blending mode. He used screen mode for fire in this series, it is used very well to create the images. The pictures in this series used physical make up effects and photoshop digital effects to create a creepy, eerie, portrait of burn victims/smoke monsters.
