The Daily Texture for 06/17/2015
Today's Daily Texture will blend wonderfully with your subjects that have gold and green colors, as is often evident in summer and autumn images. I used this texture with my photo of a Barn Swallow. The background was a rich green, and I simply masked it away, revealing the texture underneath. To bring a bit more light to the bird's head and eye area, I duplicated the texture layer, placed it on top, and set it to soft light at 50%. This also increased the yellow tone, which I didn't want. To counteract this, I desaturated that layer only, which allowed the final image to obtain the lighting from the texture, but not the increased color.
P.S. I think this might be a great texture to blend with my forest and autumn path scenes, so I will be trying that soon as well! :)
