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 […]


Tin Rose

  I never get sick of flowers or taking photos of them but sometimes you have to put your thinking cap on try and come up with a new way of shooting them. I’d taken some small props to our country hut a couple of weeks back and when I had a few moments spare […]
