Photographer-artist Miss Aniela shot to internet fame with her series of heavily stylised images, including many self-portraits. Here are her top photography tips for shooting more creative portraits.

Use props imaginatively

Using a magnifying glass in Tusk (below) enabled me to turn a simple beauty portrait into something quirkier. The blue of the magnified eye made the overall colour palette of the image more interesting, and the reflections in the glass add a further dimension.

Make use of the unexpected

I often develop concepts spontaneously around things that I find. For example in Harmony String(below) I made surreal use of an old painting that I found in the prophouse location.

Interesting style which sometimes reminds me of something from the middle ages, with the dark mood of people in the trees for example.
By the way, I love the new layout for this site, easy to navigate and cool to read.
