Digital tools in glamour photography
The theme of this calendar is very conceptual and a bit cryptic, especially for " Non-experts ".
The pictures on the calendar, considering my love for computer graphics, consists with the Photoshop tools and more precisely is a conceptual transposition of the tools you can find in the left bar of the program, that are most widely used in any photoediting software.
In some photos, I wanted to use a retro tone of the instrument to resume the tool that would be used before the advent of computers, and in others I wanted to "exaggerate" the issue, while others are purely conceptual.
I'll explain below briefly each instrument used, especially for those who have no knowledge of the program:

The instrument that is used to fill with color adjacent pixels whose color value is similar to that of
pixel you click. Its icon is a bucket with the paint dripping.
