I have been experimenting with putting textured overlays on some of my photos. These are my very first attempts:
This one of a fennel plant silhouetted against the sky uses one of Jill’s photos of a piece of her fabric weaving. I love this photo and have a feeling it’s going to be used lots more times!
yellow hibiscus with a sanskrit text overlay
white frangipani with a white nylon fishing line overlay
the ceramic jar was very colourful but I was interested to see what effect the overlay would have
At this stage I haven’t tried to do anything more complicated than overlay a single texture over the top of a photograph. Experiments with changing opacity, etc. may come later but it has taken me ages to do this successfully. I found a very good tutorial at the studioCalico. I would point out that rather than “open” both photos I used the “file>place” function for the photo of the texture. I used PSE8 for this.
