I have written about textured photography before and whether it was still a photograph or now digital art. Some like it and some don’t. The past few days I have been in an artistic/creative mood. Taking my photos from Lightroom into Photoshop Elements and adding layer(s) of texture and on a couple adding a photo filter layer. In the gallery below are a few I have been working on and you can click on each one to see a larger version.
While the photo of the desert bluebells and maple leaves were okay on their own, I think the final versions are stronger images. What I like about the desert bluebells image, is the background and how it has just a touch of a painterly feel to it now. The maple leaves image now has a more autumn fell to it by making the background a warm tone. And the clipper butterfly image, well I will be brave and show you the before image.
Change your mind about images that have had more than basic post processing? Leave me a comment, I would enjoy hearing from you!
