Day 244 – Textures

Something I have never tried is adding a texture overlay to an image. I have seen photographers that have done this, but I have never tried and of those photographers suggested that I take a look at these “adding textures“, and Kim’s still life classes for some ideas and guidance on where to begin.

I decided for me the best place to start would be creating my own collection of textures – so I headed of with my camera around the house and garden to collect an initial range of textures, because if I plan to combine images later this month…I would like to use my own images and my own textures.

So above is a selection of 48 different textures from around my home – most of them natural, but some are man made.

  1. This is so interesting. I’ve never thought about doing this. (I’m a little behind the times) The way you’ve presented this make sense now! Thank you!
