Wicked Wednesdays: FREE High-resolution Flotsam and Jetsam Textures


17 Jun

It’s Wednesday and you know what that means! Yep, time for some more FREE high-resolution texture / stock images from hoskingindustries.com.au. This week we’ve got some great shots of interesting stuff that washes up onto our local beaches. From seaweed and sea grasses to driftwood, reeds, pumice and other stuff we can’t identify. You work it out! All were shot up nice and close with a 100mm f2.8L Canon macro lens using the old 7D.

This selection of six FREE high-resolution texture images, free for personal and commercial use via the Creative Commons. HOWEVER, as with all Hosking Industries textures, you are not permitted to resell, repackage or redistribute these textures. Their intended use is for creative projects only.

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.

Simply CLICK HERE to view the gallery of six images or right-click on the thumbnails below to download the images direct. As always, these are FREE for commercial and personal creative use, however you may not resell or redistribute or claim them as your own. Enjoy!

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 Abstract Textures


13 Apr

So, things have been a little quiet around here lately… the only thing we seem to have time to post lately has been the weekly Wicked Wednesday textures. In a way, that’s a great thing because it means we’re super busy shooting feature cars and bikes for magazines all over the world as well as writing up a storm. We’ve really got to make more of an effort to get on here more often, though.

This weeks texture pack is all about close-ups and abstracts of relatively mundane objects. Often these kinds of images can provide a different view of the world and both inspire a project or become a pivotal part of it and we hope that you find a use for one or more of these FREE high-resolution images in your future design projects. The image set includes close-ups of an electric guitar neck and strings, heavily decayed painted timber, the skin of a human palm, a plasma screen and more.

As usual, all Hosking Industries texture images are FREE for personal and commercial use, however we do not permit the resale, repackaging or redistribution of the images. In short, don’t go passing them off as your own, putting them in some super jumbo compilation of super dooper textures under your own name and crap like that. We’ll take your balls!
