Chromasia is a group of companies run by British couples David and Libby Nightingale. I think their names just ring with artistry. So too does their blog (found at Chromasia’s web site), featuring marvelous examples of David’s work. Whether he’s photographing his children, an old pier, or the Blackpool Tower, his compositions are always striking. And wait until you see some of his abstract action shots, full of splashing water and flowing fabrics! It seems like new photos crop up every couple days or so, but I’d recommend browsing through whenever you get a chance, since there’s a huge back catalog of galleries to work through already. If you like what you see, let them know by purchasing a print or two. Also, Chromasia offers Photoshop tutorials based around themes and illustrated with David’s own images. You can purchase an annual subscription or lifetime membership and strap in for whatever the duo has planned next.
