“Photography is a creative pursuit. Capturing an image as it appears to the eye is only one way and possibly the less fun approach to creating photos. Like any other tools, the tools of photography can be used in limitless combinations to push the boundaries of creativity, and some of the most striking images are made when those tools are used for things their original inventors could never have imagined. Such is the way with special effects photography.” -Author Neil Creek
