Aquilegia

mouse-over for before view. Once again apologies for the lack of recipe blog posts recently, we’ve been very busy with pack launches and suchlike, hopefully we’ll be posting more here soon, I know Paul has some lovely ones to share with you but in the meantime, another flower! These aquilegia also have the very apt […]


Softness

mouse-over for before view. Sorry it’s been such a long time since our last post! We’ve both been busy with more important things like holidays:-) I have spent a lovely 10 days on the tiny Pacific Island of Niue, it’s such a relaxing and laid back kind of place and I’d love to return some […]


Vintage Boots

mouse-over for before view. Something a bit different from me this time! You see,  every few weeks a group I am a member of over on Flickr runs a fun photo challenge where you’re given three elements and have to create a new photo, it’s in the Utata group for anyone interested and the challenge […]


Late Roses

mouse-over for before view. These are almost the last roses of the season and what a wonderful summer and autumn it’s been here too with sunny days, mild temperatures and not as much rain as usual. Winter has arrived today though as has the rain! Roll on spring! This has very simple processing and the […]


Pink Rose

mouse-over for before view. I was hunting for something to process the other day when I came across this rose image. It’s a nice enough photo untextured but with the addition of just one texture the mood and look have been changed completely.  I could have added softer textures and used a different blending mode […]


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 […]


Pretty

mouse-over for before view. It’s been a while since we’ve had some floral prettiness here on the blog!  This was taken in our New Zealand spring a few months back. The flowers grow over the fence just down the hill from where I live and I couldn’t resist picking a sprig while passing, I’ve no […]


Catlins

mouse-over for before view. During the recent summer holidays we paid a visit to the Catlins, a beautiful unspoilt coastal area to the south of Dunedin. The day we visited it wasn’t very summery, but looking on the bright side, the overcast showery conditions did lead to wonderfully moody photos, the kind that are so […]


Winter Rose

It’s been a while..sorry! Blame holidays and suchlike. You’ll be pleased to know spring is finally starting to spring here in southern New Zealand (though it doesn’t feel much like it today)! There’s not a great deal in flower in my garden yet, but the Hellebores more commonly called winter roses are in flower, they […]


Feather Light

mouse-over for before view. I got a new macro lens for my lovely little SonyA7 a couple of weeks and I can definitely say that it’s money well spent! It’s a Sony 90mm F2.8 and the results are beautifully clear and sharp and it has wonderful bokeh. I’m looking forward to having more time to […]


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 […]


New pears

mouse-over for before view. Sorry about our long absence here on the blog, we do have a good excuse though, we’re excited to announce we’re busily working on a wonderful  new pack!! You’ll be pleased to know it’s almost ready for launch so keep an eye out for the “mailer” with the details and if […]


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, […]


Jam

mouse-over for before view. I have always made my own jam, usually from produce I’ve grown in my garden. As well as knowing exactly what’s gone into the jar, you get the satisfaction of eating something that’s completely home made (well apart from the sugar that is). The above is a jar of blackcurrant jam […]


Rain in Paradise

mouse-over for before view. On New Years Eve I visited the Queenstown area for the day, Queenstown being a very scenic and busy tourist town and the arguably the adventure tourism capital of New Zealand. It’s also one of the places to be on New Years Eve and naturally the town was extremely busy! To […]


Forks

forks after

mouse-over for before view. Christmas briefly came early for me! The lens that I had ordered as my Christmas present finally arrived yesterday, and I couldn’t resist a quick play before I put it away, just to check that it worked okay 🙂 The lens is a fabulous Sony/Zeiss sonnar 55mm f1.8 for my favourite  […]


Roses

  Thought it was time for some more roses to brighten up the blog pages. These are my old favourites Cecile Brunner which are looking particularly beautiful in the garden at the moment, I simply added an old open book et voila! In other news Nat from Webucator Photoshop Training has produced a wonderful and […]


Key

  It’s that busy spring season here in southern NZ  hence the lack of posts here on the blog (Paul has been busy too, slaving away over his scanner 🙂 ). And with it being spring, you’d have thought I’d be posting more photos of spring flowers and suchlike which are out in abundance at […]


Spring flower

  I hope you’re all enjoying the new Pastel Painterly Textures as much as we are? I’m finding its textures particularly easy to use and not just for my usual flowers and still-lifes either, the pastels are working well on landscapes and beaches too! Today’s photo is the first recipe using the new set, I […]


Spoon

  It’s extraordinarily warm here in southern New Zealand today. It’s still technically winter and here we are wearing tee-shirts and sandals and with all the windows open….global warming or just a freakish weather pattern? It’s lovely but I’m sure winter will return shortly! Anyway, the photo….it was taken the other day, quickly too I […]


Remembering Sam

  First of all, we’ve had a message from Nik regarding the problem some of you were having adding the new presets into Analog 2, they’ve sent me instructions on a fix with screenshots which we can’t figure out how to post here, but we’re happy to forward it to anyone who wants  it, just […]


Riches

  When I’m feeling a little uninspired photography-wise I tend to turn to subjects I love, if not flowers then books and I can never have enough books. These old beauties were taken with the macro lens, another of my favourite things! I love the different view of the world you get when you shoot […]


Rubies

  These little jewels of fruit are growing on a small bush in my garden at the moment. They’re Chilean Guava (Myrtus Ugni),  marketed  here in New Zealand as New Zealand Cranberry. They’re delicious little berries tasting like a mix of strawberry, pineapple and apple, so a real fruit salad flavour. They grow well here […]


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 […]
