Another day of experimenting with some of the techniques and methods previously introduced. And to help you out – here is a stucco wall, with intentionally uneven lighting effects. Remember – you don’t have to use the full frame to add to a layer of your original image – use your transform tool and resize/move the texture layer until you get the effects you want added to your image – so MANY possibilities! I LOVE LOVE LOVE stucco walls … their look can change with just a slight switch in lighting angles and there are so many different looks from wall to wall, depending on the knockdown (depth) used and the person doing the application. The art of construction (grin)!
I hope you aren’t getting bored with my pet portraits as examples – since I’m a pet photographer, those photos make up the bulk of my image library! This handsome wirehaired Dachshund presented a charming head study against the black backdrop. But when I textured up the ‘drop with my 366-17 Stucco (I used VIVID rather than OVERLAY this time), I really loved the juxtaposition of the two contrasting textures – to my eyes, this is a lovely improvement.
