  2. Nothing special, I took these pictures last weekend at Umhlanga Rocks in South Africa, all pictures taken with a Sony A7II, with the Sony 28-70mm, and all develop in Affinity Photo. This is my first time using Affinity Photo to develop pictures.
  3. Lovely Greetings from Berlin, this editorial illustration is made in Affinity Designer on the iPad. »A friendly forest spirit with his avatar is looking for berry supplies in fall.« This two characters will be seen soon in my second edition of the German book: https://www.rheinwerk-verlag.de/affinity-designer_4939/ This work consistently grow really big, but the document was all time stable on iPad. I worked in both – Draw and Pixel Personas. I can not count the layers anymore! I used lots of simple shapes to create the plants and went to the Pixel Persona to create further details with simple brushes like pencils. For my colouration I created a document palette with 9 main colours and HSL shades. I just used 3 layer effects: blur and shine and shadow. The lines of the character are from my sketch and later edited. I used a lot of brush sets from FRANKENTOON and DAUB and my one customised brushes.

    New photo

    Hi everyone. I haven't been very active photographically wise but I'll try to change that. I went in the woods a few days ago and I wanted to try my new Tamron 70-200mm G2 lens. So I found this small toad (I love landscape and wildlife photography) and tried to photograph it (I used my 70-200mm Tamron lens). It's not the best photo of a toad but I'm still satified with it. Let me know what you think because I still like getting advices from better photographers. Here's what I did on this photo. I played with the basic settings in the develop persona (exposure, noise reduction, clarity, etc). Because some elements were in focus and disturbing the eye away from the toad, I used a dept of field blur tool and I made sure to put the center of the tool on the eye of the toad. I changed the exposure of the background with the help of a gradiant tool. Added signature.
  6. Made sure I didnt already post these. All images were taken with a Canon 5DM4. This First Set was taken over mothers day. in Northern California by Discovery Bay. Sigma 70-200 sigma 24-105mm sigma 70-200 sigma 24-105 So 99.99% of the time I will never use an HDR filter too touch up my photography especially in commercial shoots like Realestate. buuuuuuut I gotta admit the tone mapping persona did a pretty good job here. so nicely. done Affinity team. My Client was very happy with the results, this home sold for $4.45million soo ya thats a feel good moment. all of these were done with Sigma 24-105 This was taken with the Sigma 70-200mm I used just the basic RAW editing profile for these images. All were taken by Sigma 24-105 this one belongs with the first real estate set.

    Nature Brushes - Sample

    I'm in the process of creating (almost done) a collection of brushes with nature motifs. Thought it could be useful for more Affinity users so I decided to share one sample, the brush regarding the common ivy. Let me know if you like it and if it’s worth sharing the full collection :) Common Ivy Brush.afbrushes.zip
  8. Hello, I have tryed brushes, blanding modes an effects on paper surfaces. I think it is interesting to work free in Affinity. This one it is done in AffinityPhoto.
  9. some recent images that travelled through Affinity Photo -- old fashion dodge and burn would the most used tool used in these images Lumix Fz300 Just like a big kid : throw -- throw it ----- ------ ----- ----- not so far next time Lonely pelican three photos of the one tree >background is bark from a nearby tree + a little texture brushing as above plus : black and white adjustment layer with a multiply blending layer + the orton effect I saw something in this long dead tree root beside the river ; however what I saw was not quite like how it ended up Very similar edits as the above files > honest comments / suggestions for next time / questions welcome
  10. before and after -- these are the more advanced edits, however there are other new basic edited pics on my Fb page; photos by ian browne -- or Flickr how does it look with the original pasted onto edited photo? What is better ; one photo per thread or several as here? Pana Fz300 Questions welcome Grass in front of the river water The same tree
  11. Christmas day might be ok; not too sure about after that !! Two file used, including the background -- another that evolved as I fiddled around Thanks for your help to understand the Affinity way
  12. So I walked down to the city to sign a bit of paper and although I knew I shouldn't; I took the bloody camera! . 30-40 minute walk there was no drama -- saw subjects but left the camera in old canvas backpack -- signed the paper and bolted for home until idiot left some leaves on the footpath . The photos eyes were open, so that was the end of the "bolting" home . Took around 90 minutes and about 30 subjects LOL!! However; most subjects do follow themes of my urban photos -- light and shadows >abstracts >minimal >contrasts >seldom people - but I caught the lady having a cuppa >reflections/urban trees but I have decided to include more ugly roofs in the frame All just because a idiot left some leaves on the footpath!! It is amazing what is there that can be made into a photo. Some of these, like the 1/2 edited "twins arguing" will be shared later as a seperate photo. But that's after I get through ALL the others on the waiting list Panasonic Fz300 and slapped together with Affinity Photo The problem with a very versatile camera --- too easy to take far too many photos!! Cheers
  13. Hope this is Ok to post here Nothin' on Tv so .... I'm very open to honest CC --- just don't feel I have this "right"; whatever that is . 2nd is the original The main effect made with the perspective live filter Any links/tips/advice or even show your photo/s or edit mine Cheers
  14. couple of happy snaps of a little backyard mate -- background was basically painted in/mask out until it looked Ok. As usually, no particular workflow and done for something to do so i don't have to do the many things I need to do Pana Fz300 honest comments/cc/questions welcome. . I still owe someone an answer -- will get to it when I work out how I did it LOL!!
  15. the local blackbird dropped in nearby for a quick drink before rushing off to find more tucker for the kids. Considered a pest in australia Only had time for 4 clicks It's a massive crop of a very small file Likely did more work than was required; but it's all good practise --- been sharpened/softened/masked off/background blurred+darkened/dodged+burnt (mostly burning) But all rather impressive for a little panasonic fz300 imo honest comments and questions welcome
  16. fiddling around with no real ideas in mind -- small flower about 20mm across. Sort of grows wild in the backyard editing was similar to the blurred cloud photos Sky photo was taken around the same time this morning Pana Fz300 may as well add another taken at the same time -- used a canon 250d close up filter/lens on the Pana for the last two --- files cropped the square only Yep; the lizard was also caught in the sun today honest comments / suggestions / question always welcome
  17. it's a lot easier when there no plans or even ideas to work towards -- bit like a blind emu in a dust storm Sorry; radial blur not done in Affinity -- the Ap whiz kidz need to pull their socks up there just ask if you want to see the original file in full -- yep; made from the one (and only) file What you do to make this better ?
  18. Long one left hand side has been made from 3 stitched file -- flower stem is around 6-8" (150-200mm) long bottom flower is only 25-30 mm (actually a grass flower)Pana Fz300/Affinity .honest comments and questions welcome
  19. thinking outside the boring old normal square Would have been so much easier to edit 2 and 3 in Lr and post as individual photos; but anyone can and does do that. first is a simple composite of the other two Hardest part is the idea. The second hardest part is putting the idea into place using layers/masks. There 3rd hardest part is knowing when is too much, not enough, or exactly around about close to perfect open both files as layers -- flower top layer cut the flower out with selection bush -- slightly smooth/feather selection -- add a layer mask with the marching still active -- all outside the marching ants will disappear. Now move/size the flower to suit --- no law saying you cannot rotate files. You would be surprised how often I do that Photo taken in the late morning/midday sunlight with a little Pana Fz300 your honest thoughts and comments welcome There are always other images not posted here on my Photos by Ian Browne FB page. I'm not into the FB numbers/friends stuff but you are welcome to like the page and ask questions there BTW: I have no problems if someone points out edit mistakes, typing mistakes, other ways to do similar .
  20. Pana Fz300/Affinity More than happy to explain the editing done
  21. nothing special. Lumix Fz300 --- have to love the versatility of that one even if the quality is not up to the Oly Em1 first 2 are from the backyard and the others from a local salty lake Questions welcome. Mostly just fiddling around with the masking brush without using refine Cheers leaf and shadow 3 musketeers escaping Lost ball --- there is a better photo of this waiting to be captured; if I can find it again donkey bone
  22. Bit of bad photography with Panasonic Fz300 while walking a friend's dog Just the two photos taken as I usually do; one focused on the moon and the other on the limbs -- was trying to get the "marshmallow" on the stick but the moon didn't want to be cooked --- maybe another evening Basic editing in Lr5 both files taken to affinity > focused moon enlarged to cover the other > masked in with the sharper limbs > bit of contrast added > border added with 'outline Just an interesting little edit to do and share questions welcome
  23. Just more playing with sliders -- no idea what happened to the tiff with layers so I'm as lost as you to exactly what I did. I might be able to work a bit of it out if need be 2nd is the Oly raw file 3rd is how it looked before I increased the vibrance after seeing the image on FB . The images looks Ok on this page Questions and honest comments welcome
  24. I have always enjoyed wasting time by manually mirroring images as it's always a surprise to see what pops up on the screen; but yesterday, I discover Affinity's mirroring tool. That thing really does do the brain in!! I took the first photo and gave it a spin to end up with the second photo. That was too easy so I decided to add my personal touch with a collage; something I have been making since film days and picture framing. And last one is just another of the first Amazing techknowledge, and so damn fast it's boring LOL Photo taken in 2012 in the hard country around Broken Hill, Australia Honest comments, suggestions and questions welcome. My question: how do I copy and paste 'layer effects' onto other photos in the same collage?
  25. Not sure what I can say apart from the 3rd image is the original Oly raw file --- and the flower is in bird bath Questions, honest comments and suggestions welcome
