More experimenting with textures, especially unusual ones. I never know what I’m going to get when I add textures to my photos, but that’s half the fun. One thing I’ve learned: when selecting a texture, try the wackiest-looking one you can find, or the most different from the photo. Sometimes it works, sometimes it fails. Big time.
Here’s the original photo of some azaleas I shot at the National Arboretum. They are a sweet candy-pink and white.
Here’s the same photo with a couple different textures. One of them looks a bit like snow and the other is like leather with blue highlights.
This is a shot of flame azaleas I took awhile back.
Here’s the “textured” version:
I got both of these textures from a Flickr user named JoesSistah. She has like 1200 free textures on Flickr! Can you imagine how many possibilities there are? And that’s using just ONE texture. I tend to use two so far….
All post-processing done with Photshop Elements 8. It’s a safe bet to say I’ll probably be buying this when the free testing is over.
Thanks so much for stopping by. I love comments, so feel free to leave one.
