The Daily Texture for 01/20/2015
Copper In The Kitchen
Today's Daily Texture is filled with the rich hues of copper metal. I paired it with this photo of my German Shepherd chasing a ball for my next image in my Spirit of the Dog Series. I masked the texture off the area of the dog and a bit of the grass around him...trying to leave the cloud of dust billowing from under his feet visible. Then I masked the texture off the ball as well. After getting the overall image to look the way I wanted, I layered the texture on top and set it to soft light at 30% to give it more punch of color and brightness. But it was still not to my liking, so I layered the texture on top again and started going through the layer modes to see what might look right. I finally decided on "color dodge", but only at 30%...100% was way too strong. This adjustment put more light on the dog and just made the image sing...I think I will use color dodge again!
