Fish Was Flying Eye

Fish Was Flying Eye

Emily / Viveca – How I Created a Vintage Portrait of Myself

Emily / Viveca - How I Created a Vintage Portrait of Myself

This is one that I did a while back but I thought it was worth writing about the technique I used to create this image. Emily was a relative of mine on my Mother’s side of the family, and I liked this portrait of her looking ever so slightly self-conscious, which is how I usually […]


A Room With A Dog

I have recently been experimenting with multiple texture overlays in CS3, to create slightly more abstract images as I start to move down the path of Fine Art Photography, and a comment from one of my friends on Flickr has prompted me to write this piece.  Jeremy said “I have no idea what I’m looking […]
