Golden Pears

mouse-over for before view. We hope you’re enjoying the new Impressionist Painterly pack as much as we are! I thought I’d share how I processed these pears with the new textures. I’m sure you’ll agree that the beginning image was very flat so I decided to add a couple of Impressionist textures and voila….it’s turned […]


Impressionist Painterly Launch

Impressionist Painterly

Click for a larger View Welcome to our lockdown created Impressionist Painterly Texture pack! We created these real-life oil painted textures over several months, shooting them in natural daylight or ‘en plein air’ to get the most out of this oil paint effect.

Black Mill

mouse-over for before view. During these strange locked down Coronavirus days its always good to have images to fall back on. Upon finding this image I’d taken 10 years ago, in Rottingdean near Brighton where this huge black Beacon Mill overlooks the English Channel. When it was built back in 1802, it defiantly faced France […]

Provencal Fountain

mouse-over for before view. Whilst picking up my first two swarms of honeybees in the Provencal town of Bollene I spied this typical French village fountain, I quickly took this picture and dismissed it as I thought I could never use it as it was too cluttered. Only after we released our Provencal pack did […]

Travels with My Aunt – hat and passports

mouse-over for before view. Here’s a possible book cover set-up I shot several months ago, It’s theme being loosely based on Graham Greene’s famous; ‘Travels With My Aunt’ novel, but I didn’t like the final ‘before’ result as it just didn’t ‘mesh up’ so I filed it under ‘problem images’ and forgot about it until […]

River Saone part two in portrait format

mouse-over for before view. Shot towards the end of the the same Saone river shoot blog we posted the other day, I thought I’d quickly follow it with this similar but also quite different image that was processed in a similar way. I used a poloriser filter on the camera to bring out the blue […]
