Lioness textured by Linda Sparks


Available to buy on…

I’ve been playing around with textures and layers lately, so decided to take some of my African animal shots and combine them with landscape shots I took while in Africa and some interesting textures. Very often the lions were relaxing on such uninspiring places as dirt roads and weedy patches. So now this one has some vegetation and a bit of sparkle. Landscape shot in the Ngorongoro Highlands and the lioness shot on the Seregeti National Park, both in Tanzania, Africa. Pantero Leo

Three layers of texure and color on the landscape, then the lion, then a bit of bokeh bubbles to add brightness.

After being widowed, I needed to find something new to occupy my mind. I chose photography. That turned into an obsession, compounded by my love of the artistic license provided by Photoshop and the many other artful programs that help us explore all the facets of turning a photo into art.

  • Thanks so much. One of my workshop participants ask why photographers are “trying to become painters” with all this layers stuff. My response was that once your finger twitches on that shutter button, photography is over. Everything else (even in the days of dark rooms) is art, and anything goes.
