Wicked Wednesdays: FREE Macro Bee Stock Photos


30 Apr

Well, it’s been a while since we last had a Wicked Wednesday! OK, so some of our Wednesdays can get pretty wicked, but they just haven’t been including free high-resolution textures and stock photos like they used to!

Today is different, though. Today, we’ve got a selection of six FREE macro images of bees for you – all shot in our garden here in Sydney. Given it’s apparent attractiveness to the bees, all but one of the photos have the bees collecting nectar from our perennial Basil plant. The last of the images is of one poor dead bee, looking surprisingly intact and restful at the base of a Lavender flower.

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-Resolution Knitted Wool Textures

We certainly aren’t as frequent with our Wicked Wednesday FREE texture image extravaganzas these days, but when we bring ’em, we reckon we bring to goods. This week we’ve got more wool and knitted texture stock images. Reason being: Ben learned to knit and proceeded to make scarves for his entire family for Xmas 2012. There, it’s said. We hope you agree he did a good job!

Wicked Wednesdays: FREE High-Resolution Wool Textures 3


24 Oct

This will be our last wool texture-fest until after the new year, but never fear, we’ll have some more cracker shots coming your way after then. For now, you can enjoy another six totally FREE high-resolution texture images of wool – this time in knitted form. The wool is a combination of pure wool and wool/alpaca blends in a typical garter stitch (for all the knitting fans, and Google robots out there). The shots were taken with a Canon 7D (as always), with a single Speedlite flash bounced off a nearby wall for light.

Wicked Wednesdays: FREE High-Resolution Wool Textures 2


03 Oct

I know, I know, right? Two weeks in a row with six high-resolution texture images absolutely FREE?! Boy, do we look after you lot, or what.

When we snapped our brains out taking photos of various balls of wool in various states of being balls of wool, we were lucky enough to grab what we needed for about a month of texture images. So, that means we’ll be able to bring you around another two weeks of these great shots in full resolution. This week’s shots are all of a series of balls who’s yarn changes colour as the ball winds down, for dramatic and cool effects on whatever you’re knitting. It’s like a rainbow of colour on your clothes!
