Matte may be seen as on trend, but I find that creating this effect is a way to add style, dimension and even enhance an emotion I felt when the the initial photograph was taken where the set up in camera has captured the essence of what I was looking to capture. I am experimenting to incorporate into certain parts of my work as often the normal precise methods of image processing can be too precise and appear clinically crisp.  This film / cinematic emulation is another technique in the journey I have with photography.
