I’ve been experimenting with textures recently. I’ve seen so many good images using textures and I generally like the effects. Here’s my latest attempt using a picture of a flower growing in my backyard a couple of years back. The textures are all courtesy of Jerry Jones at Shadowhouse Creations (check his stuff out — lots of great textures).
I used three textures as follows: “Notaclue-1” in soft light blend mode (100% opacity), “In The Beginning 8-1-2009 #29” in overlay blend mode (36% opacity), and “Retro” in overlay blend mode (30% opacity). All three texture layers were tweaked for color (mainly some desaturation) and had light masking in the area of the actual flower itself. Finally, a slight s-curve was added in luminosity blend mode (50%) — slight masking of the flower again.
Think it looks OK?
[Update: Jerry Jones, if you ever happen across this know that I attempted to comment on your site and give you kudos but the robot prevention code thingy always said I entered the wrong letters…which I know isn’t the case.]
