I stopped placing signatures on photos a long time ago for a few reasons, but mainly because I’m not a fan of the fancy digital signatures that are either created in Photoshop or have a professional to create one, in my opinion, it doesn’t add any personal touch unless it is a handwritten one.
However, I am being asked more and more to sign photographs and even my yearly calendars. Now, for those that know me well will know just how terrible my handwriting is, it’s so bad that I often can’t even read my own writing and therefore my signature is no work of art either. So I have been working on a new signature that is very recognisable and this is now available as a free option on any print purchased from the Shop. All Single and Limited Editions will automatically have the signature along with being a numbered print.
What does the signature look like you may ask? As mentioned above I don’t like the fake digitally designed signatures as they are, well, fake, so I have created a signature and I have signed it using my Pen Tablet (the one I use to process photos) so is a digital version actually signed by me. This is then added to the photograph in either black or white depending on the photo being signed.
Here is an example on my Waves At Dusk photograph
