Jen Rinaldi Photography and Julie LawsonPhotography

I’m still editing pictures from Jen’s visit at the first of this month. My oldest daughter took the photos of Jen and I together so I wanted to give her a big shout out for doing that for us. On these pictures, I chose to use a texture to kind of “fake” the backdrop. I had used my white backdrop but didn’t like the look of it, so I had saved some textures that I had gotten from Flickr, then did an overlay on my image and erased the texture over us. I think they came out fairly well.

You can see several of the images that Jen has done of me and my family over at: http://blog.jenrinaldiphotography.com/

Experimenting with texture (more added)

I just thought I would share a photo that I did using a texture that I found on Flickr. Flickr has thousands of free textures for download. I haven’t even seen all the textures available. When you get to flickr, just type in free textures and start browsing. Anyway, so I found this photo in my August files and decided to see what I could do with it. I coverted it to black and white using the Gradient Map and then adjusted the curves to give the photo a little more contrast. Then I applied this texture over it and adjusted the opacity a bit. I also used the eraser tool to take away a little of the texture over her face, as I didn’t want her face to be completely covered.
