I've always collected old slides and taken photographs, and in the past couple of years have managed to incorporate them into my graphics work to create surreal but natural-looking landscapes and scenes.

Using layer blending options, textures and adjustments, you can emulate this vintage look and create photo collages with a different twist. By taking the elements of different photos and layering them together, you can create new worlds.
