366-16: Bird Seed

Yep, bird seed!  Petey the Cockatiel shared his feed with me for this texture shot.  Grab it and have some fun!

Texture 366-16 Bird Seed

I’m not feeling particularly creative today, so my example isn’t likely one to get you excited over using this one … however, before I removed it from over the man’s face in my image, I noticed that fiddling with the opacity gave a pretty cool reptilian feel to his skin – I bet some of my awesome readers can come up with a wow! photo from the seed image!  For my example, I’m playing around, looking for something to use to help keep Indie the Cocker Spaniel (and the man’s hand) from blending so much into the concrete pavement behind her.  This texture does just that.  If I was feeling particularly into the image, I’d also skew the texture overlay so the feed would mirror the perspective on the image for a truer look.

Jan 5: 366-05 Sunflower

On my last trip to New Jersey,  I caught some great sunflower images.   This texture is cropped from one of my close-ups. 

Texture 366-05 Sunflower

Finding a photo from my files to use for this one was a bit challenging!  Here is the before and after I ended up with (truth be told, I like the before photo better – but I wanted to illustrate the use of the Sunflower in some way).  I chose this photo to give the background over the Cocker Spaniel a bit of a funky look, to illustrate how a morning hangover might feel : )-.  I changed the hue and lowered the opacity of the final overlay to complement the image a bit more than the original file.
I’m curious to know – what graphics program do YOU use?  I edit/create in Photoshop CS3.  Share your choice of programs in the comments section!  Also, feel free to comment and post links to projects where YOU have used this texture and tell us how you tweaked it to fit your needs.  Feedback is welcomed! All textures are available for personal or commercial use.
