Working With Textures And Overlays

Turn Ho-Hum into a Work of Art


Join Lancaster Photography Association on March 23rd at 6:00 p.m. PST for a wonderful virtual workshop with Hazel Meredith! Zoom info below!

Don’t delete that digital image! Do you sometimes have a shot that you really like….a subject that is hard to capture….a place you may not get to again….but it’s not perfect? Turn that “almost” good shot into a work of art by utilizing textures and overlays.

Maybe it’s a bird in flight – the bird looks great, but the sky is blah. Use another sky image as an overlay, or add a texture – or both! Maybe it’s a nice flower shot – good color and composition, but it’s not quite tack sharp. Use textures to turn it into a fine art image! Of course, you can also add textures to your best images and make them spectacular!

Textures are everywhere – there are many free and for-purchase ones online. You can create your own textures within Photoshop or from photos of everyday objects. Working with layers and blending modes, there are many things you can do to create a beautiful work of art – She will show you how!
