Sleepwalking 3

Cat Burton - Sleepwalking 3

Sleepwalking 3 is the third in my ongoing Sleepwalking series of images. The series follows a girl through her fantasy dreamworld.

Usually blue-toned and somewhat dark, these images seek to invoke a calm yet perhaps sombre feel of a mysterious woman in a black dress exploring Scottish scenes barefoot.

You never see her face as she could be any one of us. We are following her, somewhat stealthily, peering into her dream world as she walks.

The first two images from the series are visible in the gallery and all 3 will be available for purchase during my exhibition and Perthshire Open Studios.

The Witching Hour

Sorry for the lack of updates recently! I’ve been super busy doing freelance game dev so photography has had to take a back seat for a couple of weeks.

Whenever I’ve had a few spare moments I’ve been dabbling with some new editing methods to add a bit of magic to my images. I’m working on a project which hopefully I’ll be able to share with you all once my schedule calms down a bit!

In the meantime, I hope you like my latest image! As always, you can see a larger version and my other images over on my portfolio.

Sleepwalking I

Sleepwalking I

This is the first in what I hope will be a series of dark dreamlike images.

Ever since I left Scotland I keep dreaming about walking through the gorgeous snowy woodland there. I can’t physically go back yet, so I decided to revisit it in the next best way 🙂

For my photography friends, here’s a little bit of additional info… The backdrop is from Scotland – a shot I took a few weeks ago. The person is me (in a wig – a purple bob wouldn’t have worked so well!). I photographed myself today against a plain magnolia painted wall. Since I was wearing black, this made it super simple to create a layer mask in Photoshop using luminosity masks. The toning and slight glow to the image was added as a final step using Macphun’s Tonality Pro. All images used were shot with my Sony A7ii.

As always, a larger version and prints are available on my portfolio.
