The Daily Texture for 03/22/2015
Today's Daily Texture is filled with beautiful, luminous colors you'd find at the beach and the ocean. I used this texture on both of the images shown below. For the Boxer from the Spirit Of The Dog Series, I masked out his background and placed him on top of the left side of the texture. I duplicated the texture and placed it on top, setting it to soft light at 100% to bring out a bit more color. The sea shell and pearls still life was a quick and easy one, with no masking involved. I photographed these objects on a white piece of watercolor paper in natural light outside. Then I placed the texture on top and set it to hard light layer mode at 100%. The white background enabled the photo to pick up the colors of the texture very quickly this way.
