Photographer Kevin Carden transforms otherwise ordinary scenes of everyday life into extraordinary tales. Using his camera and his expert knowledge of Photoshop, he patches together different settings, textures, and compositional elements to create images that evoke feelings of wonder and strength. This speaks to the larger purpose of his work. Carden says his images are inspired by his Christian faith, and he produces these photographs based on the principles found in the Bible.
Carden is generous in sharing what he knows about Photoshop. On his popular Instagram account, he regularly posts his Photoshop before-and-after shots with captions detailing how he composed the image as well as a summary of the post-processing required to bring his idea to life. His website goes even more in-depth and offers full Photoshop tutorials for sale. Once you purchase a tutorial, you’ll also get the stock photography Carden used so that you can recreate the image for yourself.
