Surreal Realities (11 photo manipulations) [My Modern Metropolis]

Surreal Realities (11 photo manipulations): "

It's the attention to detail that sets Erik Almas apart from other photographers. The San Francisco-based Norwegian is known for his near perfect lighting and focus which are demonstrated in his beautiful photos of sweeping vistas and surreal landscapes. It actually takes a few seconds to differentiate what's real and what's not in his well-executed photo manipulations.

'Photography sort of fell in my lap,' Almas says. 'When looking back at how I became a photographer it is almost like it rained on me. I didn't have a great interest in pictures. Or art. And a relative didn't give me a camera when I was 12. It was small random sources hitting me different places and when faced with the crossroad and question of; 'What do I do now?' I was soaked up in the idea of becoming a photographer. Since then small encounters have led me across the world and then around it a few extra times.'
