“I like to combine sometimes architecture structures, nature and human forms.” says Tom Krieger on his double exposure work. “After combining the double exposure I love to use some other apps like Mextures to add lights and structures. Matter is a really great app, too.”

We discovered his work on EyeEm during the recent awards. Tom Krieger is what I like to call a true photographer. He started 25 years ago with his first Nikon without AF just for fun. “Later on I used this camera to experiment with long exposures in the mountains of the French Alps or as an action cam on my hang glider also as a landscape photographer.” Unlike other photographers and wannabes, he understands that the camera is just a tool as a painter and illustrator to paint in a photorealistic style.

“Today I use several digital cameras and lenses and have my own studio for reference shootings. My iPhone is always with me and my point-and-shoot cam.”

Mr. Krieger states that he loves to create images with his iPhone. “It is this simplicity to focus on the essentials of the image design. And I love to play around with apps.” states Tom. He explains his process as working with apps like Diana. After this he scrolls through his other images on his phone to combine with the one he just show. Then he plays around with apps until he gets exactly what he wants from the image.

“I think when a photo is different from others it allows interpretations. I do not really care whether it is a successful image or not. I’m relatively detached in this matter. That makes me feel unbound and detached.”

More of Tom’s images are after the jump.
