The purpose of this thesis study was to explore various ways of producing creative photographs by manipulating an image as well as its plastic elements. The main areas of investigation included image and color separation, which produced new elements in the photographs. These elements synthetically created an image that was different from the original and had acquired a new meaning through the artist. This study should not be thought of as complete or final but infinite in its possibilities and extensions.
