PaulGrand2: Speaking as one half of the Flypaper Texture team, i'd like to thank Ellen for this enlightening feature!
Btw, its a little known fact that the Victorians also used purchased glass plate textures in their darkrooms,
this was forgotten about until only recently.
JParker, thanks for the history, Steichen's photographic movement was called 'Pictorialist'.
Our painterly textures concept is based upon the French Impressionists who in turn influenced the Pictorialist photographers we all admire.
Rayven, the texture used on the first image is Luminescent from our Flypaper Tex Pack 2.:-)

A pleasure Ellen, and thanks for the feature!:-)
Its true, I was amazed when fellow flickr texture friend showed me antique magazine ads for those textures!
What we're doing now in PP was done in a darkroom over 100 years ago!

Gary Zuercher: The French Impressionists of 1870-1900 were the artists who, in reaction to ever-improving photographic technology, made oil painting more expressionistic and "painterly" rather than photo-realistic. Today's photography, especially digital photography, can be made more "painterly" by the use of the techniques mentioned in the article and others. That being said, I always remind myself that, just because I CAN doesn't necessarily mean I SHOULD.

And thus its ironic that the impressionists were the first artistic movement to fully embrace photography!
I recently saw a website dedicated to their photographic source material, fascinating! :-)

rayven: Hi Ellen!

I'm a painter and also enjoy photography. I don't do this kind of style often, but on the right photo, when printed, it looks wonderful hanging up with other traditional paintings. I'm in love with the first image and texture. Is that your own? Is it available to download/buy anywhere?
Thanks for the article and the links to sites. The textures are also great for digital painting too.
