Michael Damien Jicha Photography
I'm a Philadelphia based photographer primarily photographing portraits and head shots .
This series is a photographic interpretation of impressionist, post impressionist and surrealist painters. I'm influenced by the movement, color, texture and subject matter of painters like Rene Magritte, Giovanni Boldini, and John Singer Sargent.
To achieve these qualities I use post photographing tools such as cloning, healing, drawing and dodging and burning. I use the drawing tool to "paint" color on the photograph. Cloning and healing add texture and the dodging and burning add depth.
