Photographed with the old Canon 7D and a 100mm f2.8L macro lens. Check ’em out, we even found you a water spout and a rainbow! How good are we!?

Wicked Wednesdays: FREE High-Resolution Macro Textures


17 Jul

Wicked Wednesdays is here again, folks! One more lot of FREE high-resolution macro photographic texture images for your enjoyment. They’re a little more obscure and random this time around, with some shots of sea shells, radiator fins, sand-smoothed broken glass, an electric guitar’s selector switch and of course, more wool! We hope you are able to find uses for them all. If we find the time to get out and shoot some more soon, we’ll bring you more in the future. Feel free to send requests.

All images were shot on a Canon 7D with a 100mm f2.8L macro lens, using several shots of each object for focus stacking.

Wicked Wednesdays: FREE High-Resolution Knitted Wool Stock Images


23 Jan

These are the last of our series on wool and knitted wool texture images and stock photos. You could say they’ve been a progression from raw wool right through to the end product, but that probably won’t make much difference to those making good use of the images.

The scarves feature a combination of garter and stocking stitch with the majority of those shown using pure wool or wool/alpaca blend wool, with the pink knitted piece being acrylic. All were shot with a Canon 7D / 24-70mm f2.8L and lit by bouncing a Speedlite flash off a nearby wall. All our texture images remain in their original high-resolution format.

Wicked Wednesdays: FREE High-Res Sydney City Images


21 Sep

We don’t often deviate from our commitment to provide you all with free texture images, but when we do, it’s only so we can bring you some free stock images! This week we’ve brought you some FREE high-resolution stock images of Sydney. However, instead of uploading a bunch of cliched shots of the harbour bridge, opera house or other tripe, we thought we’d look for some more uncommon elements of the city and this is what we’ve found.

You’ll see some nice examples of the juxtaposition of old and new building design primarily, but also some other cool stuff we hope you can use either in design projects or perhaps simply as inspiration for a future design project of your own. Enjoy!

As always, Hosking Industries high-resolution texture images are FREE for personal and commercial use. However, you may not resell, repackage or redistribute these textures or generally pass them off as your own for monetary gain etc. Use them in your design projects, but don’t use them for commercial gain.

20 Apr

A collection of six high-resolution automotive stock images displaying vehicles from a dead-on front perspective. All images are just about perfectly straight on, meaning the perspective is right and no skewed.

All stock images are free for personal and commercial use, however you may NOT redistribute, repackage or resell the images as your own. So, don’t go putting them in other compilations of stock images, on CDs or DVDS or passing them off as your own product to sell.
