Martikson doesn't remind me of anything like Liebovitz. I'm sorry but I don't get the connection.

Thanks for the advice Freds. I'm lucky enough to be able to play with DH's SLR. I'm working my way through the various lenses. I'm truly shocked how different the world looks through the viewfinder with each one.

* "away with being murder" - Sorry typo

Martikson - This is not Annie's work. However i do see the connection to Annie's inspiration taken from the master painters use of light which is what this photographer is trying to recreate, photographs that look like paintings..

What sets Annie apart is that she manages to keep her photos - photos, if you get what i mean.. They're surreal but 'digitally' surreal with lighting thats very similar to that of a painters lighting. she's merged modern photography techniques with vintage principals.

Some of the photos are very beautiful though - have a scroll through their page:

i'd be interested to know how some of the editing here was done to give a vintage/painted feel, namely:

I guess I was mesmerized by this one;

which is why I asked what lens...the foreground has very little distortion

How's your Polish?

fwiw I got this effect with color correction by the numbers, that Hasselblad action on the adobe site and a color balance layer

The Leibovitz frames Donamai referded to, was shot on film. The b&w on Polaroid 55 and the colorshot by the car on old Portra. The BW was natural light, the colorshot lighted with a weak softlighter.

So great light, great film, great scan og great post work, is what gives you this style:
