If you have been following our blog for awhile, then you know that I have a passion around textured photographs and the different moods and feelings you can create by layering different textures, changing blend modes, removing texture from select areas, and changing opacity. Its definitely something I do when I am in a “creative” mood.
In this post I’ve included photos from our Christmas road trip. In all of these images, there was something about the scene that I really liked, but felt it needed extra dimension. I think I am getting to a point where I just “know” that an image will end up being textured.
I’ve learned that texturing is a combination of creative exploration, patience, trial and error, and being willing to throw something out that you’ve spent an hour on and start over with a fresh set of ideas.
To learn more about the technique, you can read my blog post on Tips for Texturing Photographs on Digital Photo School.
