About the artist: My name is Sing Lee, I’m a software engineer. I was born and raised in the Netherlands, my roots are in Hong Kong. Dutch is my native language, and I also speak Cantonese and English. I love technology, art and design. My left side of my brain is stronger than my right side, it takes ages before I can think up something creative, luckily my analytical skills helps me to execute the idea. I like gloomy and moody things, but in real life I always smile when I talk.
I was always intrigued by how much emotion and mood a still picture can hold, so I wanted to create the same. I started with taking snaps and taught myself all the technical things. Only about two years ago I joined instagram, it really was a big eye opener! I was incredibly impressed by the creativity of the community. It was truly inspirational! From this point I wanted to create something too instead of just capturing things what just happens in front of me.
About the edit: The picture was taken in an abandoned room, I love the way how the light came in through the window and the gloomy atmosphere it has. I have seen the ‘disintegration’ effect here and there on instagram, so I thought this effect would perfectly fit the mood.
I do all the editing in PS Touch on my Samsung Note 2, it’s really nice to have a stylus for editing! Usually I start out making the picture black and white, then make an S in the curves and lift the darks (the left side of the curve) up a bit, so the picture tone will get a bit more flat and less details in the shadows. And then I blend some mextures from a separate layer. For the ‘disintegration’ effect I’ve erased myself a bit using the clone stamp tool, and added the particles using a picture of sand. I’ve erased and added sand until I got this effect.
