"These images are in my 'line of flight' project. This name comes from French Philosopher Gilles Deleuze's concept 'ligne de fuite' (means 'line of flight'), this concept covers act of feeling, flowing, leaking and disappearing into the distance and this line of flight connects with the possibility of multiplicity. First I chose this concept and I began to took my picture at several places with my mobile phone (iPhone 5), this is very important that I wanted to use my phone, because this phone have lots of possibilities. I did not want to take an ordinary silhouette, I only wanted some dark areas in my face by using natural light. Then, I took photographs of ruined buildings and streets with trees. I wanted to compose a line of flight with these images, I wanted to create a multiplicity and I believe that a double exposure or multiple exposure gives me this possibility, And again first I used my phone, I tried several double exposure application and I usually use Diana Photo App for my mobile photography, then I add some textures with photoshop or some mobile app too and than I decided to color of picture only for an esthetic reason."
Unsplash. Once in Photoshop, it was just a matter of experimenting with blending modes until I found the effect I wanted. I generally place the portrait at the bottom of the layer stack and then blend the second photo on top of it, using Overlay, Screen, Lighten, Soft light, or a combination of blending modes and adjusting the layer opacity. Once I’ve settled on the blend I apply a layer mask to the second photo and use the brush tool to paint in the areas that I want the blend stronger or weaker. The mask is mainly to help me keep facial features distinct. Lastly, I add adjustment layers for color and contrast and apply sharpening as needed."
