The Daily Texture for 05/23/2015
A Golden Moment
If you want to have a wonderful golden light on your subject, then Today's Daily Texture is for you! Yesterday, I was blessed to see one of our bald eagle chicks take his first flight. This was the perfect texture to use with his image, as it truly was "A Golden Moment"! First I placed the image on top of the texture. To be very accurate with masking away the background (which was green), I used Topaz Remask. After that, I also gently masked away the edges of his feathers to blend him in better with the texture and to make sure no green leftovers from the original background were showing. Then I duplicated the texture layer and placed it on top, setting it to multiply at about 10%, just to tone down the brightness on the bird. Then I duplicated the texture again, and placed it on top, setting it to overlay at 50%. I masked a little of this layer off of his face to tone down the gold on his face and make sure the details of his eyes and beak were sharp.
