Cup of blues

mouse-over for before view. It’s no secret that I love my blue hydrangeas, unfortunately I have trouble growing them, they all seem to revert to pink unless I sprinkle Aluminium Sulphate around the plant and I’m hopeless at remembering to do this, the result, pink hydrangeas this year! So while I was out on one […]


Hydrangea Blue

mouse-over for before view. Not another hydrangea I hear you saying 🙂 I’m of the opinion that you can never have too many! They’re such photogenic flowers especially my favourite blue variety. This was textured with a mix of old and new Flypapers, one texture came from our ever popular Summer painterly pack and one […]


Blue

mouse-over for before view. You’ll be pleased to know that the Hydrangea that I planted last season has remained blue! So I’m happy! I’m now hoping the bush will grow a bit bigger now and have a mass of flowers to brighten a fairly bland corner of my garden. While we’re on the hydrangea subject, […]


Hydrangea blue

  Our apologies for the lack of posts here recently, we’ve both been on holiday but normal services have resumed so with luck you should see a bit more activity here on the blog. I’m still processing the photos I took while on lovely whistle-stop visit to New Zealand’s North Island and haven’t textured any […]


Vintage Hydrangea

  I am enjoying the versatility of our new Flypaper metallics, I love the light metallic sheen that some of them give to photos depending on the blending mode and opacity of the texture layer, this adds a whole new dimension. In this shot of a single hydrangea floret on an old mirror, I combined […]


Tintype Jug

  Yet another blog post from me!  Paul has had computer problems recently  but he’s almost back up to speed now with a sparkling new toy so you will be pleased to know there will be blog posts from him again in the not too distant future 🙂 In today’s photo you’ll see my newly […]


Tintype Hydrangea

  I hope you’re all enjoying playing with the wonderful new Tintype Edges as much as we are. They’re going to be very versatile especially if you want an authentic vintage look. Paul and I have been experimenting with scanning things on our flatbed scanners and then texturing, scanning gives a very narrow depth of […]


Hydrangea

  Some more of my favourite climbing hydrangea which grows in our city’s Botanic Gardens just down the road. I do have a plant in my own garden but it’s only a baby and I’m waiting impatiently for it to grow….maybe next season I’ll have butterflies in my garden!


Hydrangea Blues

Paul always manages to write such interesting posts when he blogs, but with my flowers I struggle to think of anything to write, I’m just getting over a nasty bout of the flu at the moment which probably won’t help my blog writing. I especially like blue hydrangeas and have been trying without luck to […]


Ode

Another photo of one of my favourite photographic subjects, I never get sick of the climbing hydrangea! The photo was taken with my wonderful new Pentax 50-135 f2.8 lens, it produces some lovely bokeh. I textured this on the laptop while I was at our country hut this past weekend  and since our hut isn’t […]


Powder Blue Hydrangea

I am enjoying playing with the new Spring Flypapers, although we trialled them extensively prior to release it’s always fun coming up with new combinations and finding out what works with a certain style of photo.  Over in our Flypaper flickr group there’s a thread where you can tell us which your favourites are from […]


Harmony

Back to one of favourite subjects, dried climbing hydrangea flowers; this one was taken last autumn in my basement “studio”. The reality of my studio is quite different to how it appears in my photos but I don’t think I’ll go into that or it will ruin the mystique, I will say that dirty windows […]
