Old Venice

Old Venice

I like Italy. No, actually I love Italy. The romance, architecture and way of life is just beautiful. Venice is one of the most stunning cities in the world, thanks to the beautiful buildings and of course it’s water ways.

I took this photograph in April this year and have only just got round to processing the RAW. That’s the trouble when you go away and come back with several hundred RAW images that need processing individually by hand, or mouse to be more exact!

As Venice has so much rich history I thought this image deserved an antique look to it so I found some creative textures which I then applied in Photoshop. A combination of 2 texture files, several filters and layer adjustments brought the desired effect, and it was shown on the DCMag website homepage for a short while so I must have done something right!

I think this represents the old Italy quite well. Venice is definitely a photographers paradise and I can’t wait to go back again. Then again, I still have some RAWs to process from last year in Florence where I got married so I need to pace myself better!

Ciao 🙂

Dreaming of Daisies

Dreaming of Daisies

This is one of my favourite art pieces I have created recently and was ‘constructed’ using two different photos of daisies, one a close-up and the other a group of daisies.

The image has many different textures added to it to create an artistic rendition of a field of daisies. The textures and effects were made in Photoshop with various filters and texture files overlaid as separate layers. These had masks applied and other filters and layer blends added which has given the piece the deep tones and rustic feel.

After getting a Photobox print to check it looked good enough I got it printed on a large canvas and it looks absolutely stunning on the wall! You can purchase this piece of art yourself as a wall print here from the Fotoviva Art Prints online gallery.
