Ever since reading a discussion on applying textures to photographs on one of the Digital Photography School forums about six months ago, I have been trying to figure out how to do it myself.
Initially the problem was finding textures to apply (ones that didn't create endless computer crises when I tried to download them). BeeBeeMod resolved that issue when she led me to NinianLif, whose free textures on Flickr offer innumerable possibilities. (All textures used here are hers.)
A few Google searches then turned up this tutorial, and I was on my way. And as I suspected, textures are extremely cool. And so easy to work with! I wonder if some of my favorite photographers and bloggers out there would be into this...
These are a few of my recent experiments.
Hopefully the next step will be creating some textures on my own.
