Well since i've been studying manal photography at uni this semester, i've been on the internet lots recently looking up photographers, and boy have i found some gems !! They're not all using manual methods, and it seems that the artists i like most are very strong in using Photoshop or another means of photographic image manipulation.
Oleg Oprisco is a photographer from the Ukraine. His work in absolutely fantastic; so ethereal and haunting. Love the use of light and an apparent innocence in his work.....the sunbeams and lends flares are great and i love the slightly sepia-toned colouring.
You can find more of his work here and also here.
