Just Added 2 New Texture Sets

It been a while since I last posted textures so have added 2 new sets today.

Both sets have 10 large textures. A black and white set and a pretty colourful grunge set.

They are free to use (see terms of use)

I often get asked why I give them away. Well simply, I have great fun making them. When I first started learning how to use textures I experimented with free textures from other photographers. Now I get the opportunity to do the same by offering my textures for free.

As always I love to see what people can do with these textures. Please feel free to post a link to your work.

I will be adding other sets in the future so follow me/come back soon

My 4th set of free textures

A collection of large, colourful, pretty grunge textures.

The inspiration for my textures comes from all sorts of everyday objects and surfaces. I can sometimes find interesting textures in unusual places. Many of the textures in this pack actually came from some bird poop I found on an old copper pot in my garden :) A little odd maybe but it did make for some interesting textures.

New Free Textures

Free texture page

 

I have recently been working on some new textures. I thought it might be fun to offer a free set of textures and see what other people could do with them.

I had loads of fun making these textures. They were all created with my Canon EFS 60mm macro lens with post work done in PS5. You can find cool textures everywhere. I have photographed everything from rusty metal gates to the scratches on my kitchen sink. Continue reading »

How I Create My Oil & Water Abstracts

Of all the questions I get asked about my photographs, How to do the oil and water abstracts is the question I get asked the most.

Just the other day someone asked how do I get lots of bubbles and not have the oil just flatten out into 1 or 2 bubbles……..’Washing up liquid’.

After a lot of experimenting I found that adding a little washing up liquid to the water stopped the oil flattening out and gave me lots of oil bubbles.
