Artichokes

Artichokes

I dont think I ate an artichoke until I was a student? After finishing a water-colour still-life of them, as it would have been a crime to throw them out. I’m not saying we lived on just potatoes and boiled cabbage, but up in Yorkshire such things were frowned upon and were seen as being […]


Roses

Roses

The roses in the garden are starting to look slightly bedraggled as they near the end of their season, it being autumn here in the southern hemisphere. The clocks went back this past weekend so I guess it won’t be long till we get a frost. I don’t mind autumn, the golden light at this […]


Dune Path

Dune Path

We’re having major sand-dune renovations! Our coastline isn’t as built up as the more trendy next door Provençal beaches, we’re cut off from their beaches by the Camargue wetlands. The main difference being that ‘Nice’ has no sand, only pebbles and Cannes has to import it every spring, whilst we have plenty! They’re now trying […]


Chasing the wind

Its always nice to wake up and find another one of your babies gracing a published book cover! Here’s today’s, an American thriller, heavily textured with our flypaper painterly textures. Its just a preview copy as its not yet out, so I expect their colours will hopefully not be as muddled as this one with […]


Pretty pastels

This is another lensbaby photo, I love the extreme bokeh the lens produces as well as the unpredictability of the results, I also love how well lensbaby shots work with textures. Okay, the recipe and it was a fairly simple one, only one texture and one of the blending modes was one you’d not expect. […]


Women under Scaffolding

I’m no stalker, but when I see a great silhouette, and I’m armed with a camera, I will sometimes move just a few tiny paces to try to get a secret shot! Our narrow medieval streets are perfect for this type of shot, though for the same reason our streets are often too shaded and […]

It was a pleasure to answer questions for Mary Andrade’s feature on – ‘Tips for Texturing Photographs’ over on the DPS site. For all newcomers to to Flypaper, simply mouse-over the images for a fast before/after effect! […]

À la recherche du temps perdu

Welcome to the first Flypaper Spring texture recipe! We’re really pleased to be able to use the freshly named textures, as before naming we used various numbers and joked that they only really come to life once they are named! During the extraordinary high spring tides a few weeks back, I tried out my new […]


Wilted

A few days ago I took delivery of a Lensbaby composer lens, it’s something I have had my eyes on for ages but spurred on by Paul’s photos taken using his, I decided to take the plunge. I’ve loved it so far and it’s hardly been off the camera though I’m still coming to grips […]
