The Artistic Computer Geek

The Artistic Computer Geek

After a few days with rain and grey skies the sun was out again yesterday so I decided to shoot another street portrait. This is Mats Ekström from Vendelsö. He is an esthetics student at the Fredrika Bremer secondary school in Handen. I am a computer geek, he told me, sounding rather proud as he said it. He enjoys creating characters for video games. That work usually starts on paper and finishes in Photoshop. The programme at the school also involves photography, painting and sculpting.

(I spotted Mats and one of his friends in Handen, his friend had orange hair and eyebrows, but he choose to stay un-photographed).

A great portrait. He looks like he's very serious about his artistic geekery!

he looks serious...
photoshop is too complicated; but why do so many people want to work on their photos after they were taken?

I think the title describes a lot of us in the photo blogging world.
