Editor’s Note: Creating the Photograph is an original series where we interview photographers about a photo that they shot and how it was achieved. The results are some knowledge passed on to you. Want to be featured? Email chrisgampat[at]thephoblographer[dot]com
Ian Arneson is a photographer based in northern Virginia who has an eye for the fantastical. Skilled in the art of photo manipulation, Ian takes concepts that would normally live in the pages of a fantasy novel and gives them life in photographs. We came across his photograph “Black Heart Bride” and we had to know how he did it.
More than anything, learn how Ian totally tricked his own camera.
