I love that photography allows me to create all kinds of art. I can create portraits of people, animals or whatever I want. I can take those photographs and add textures and overlays to them and end up with something that looks more like a piece of art than a photograph.
I try not to get too heavy handed with the textures and sometimes I play with how they look until I am happy with the overall image. And if I think it’s too much…well, it probably is and I back off with it a bit!
But then there are times that I want more of a textured look. Sometimes the photograph just seems to almost need it to bring it to life.
Here are two examples of some images with textures. The first has a texture but it’s not as strong as the second one. With the second image, I wanted it to look like a print.
I was so happy with how they both turned out. I hope you like them as well!
