PHOTOSHOP 1-2-3: Enhancement of an Exterior Perspective

“Hi Maricar,

I discovered your blog a few weeks ago and as a fellow architectural student/professional I have been really inspired by your work. Your designs are incredibly ambitious and thought provoking to me as you clearly push the boundaries and explore new conceptual ideas, I also think the ambiance and atmosphere you develop in your visualizations are equally as great … I know it’s a big ask but would it be possible for me to send my portfolio online to you for you to critique my work and give a little guidance on how I can replicate the appearance you achieve in your visualizations?

I really appreciate you reading my message, I think your work is exceptional and I look forward to more blog posts, thank you.

Kind regards,

David Banks.”
