You all know I’m currently obsessed with all things photographic – learning more about the capabilities of my DSLR, better technique, post production processing, how to use Photoshop etc etc……..well, I have also been playing with adding textures to some chosen images. This gives a very different effect, one either loves or hates it, and there seems to be no middle road. I sent this one:-
to a friend recently and was told it looked like a tizzy greeting card, and why spoil a good photograph by adding all sorts of murkiness and sentimental twaddle?? I like the creative possibilities, and think some look can quite artistic…..Anyway, I did an online class with Kim Klassen to learn more about Photoshop Elements, and she also designs and sells collections of textures, plus uses them in many of her shots. If you receive her newsletter, you can download regular free textures to use as you like. Recently Kim set a challenge to use at least one of her textures in a photograph featuring a tea cup or coffee mug, so today I took and modified these …. What do you think? Do you like this technique…..or hate it? Any favourites?
Some more that have added textures……..
Apologies for lack of textile content…….I will get back to it…….sometime…..
