While on our drive several days ago to explore the flooding in our region, I snapped a photo through the car windshield of a drab, lonely barn sitting on a barren hill. I knew this would not be a good photograph, but it would make a great 'canvas' on which to experiment with my textures in Photoshop. Allow me to show you some of the transformations.
SOOC. A terrible day and a photograph to match! I had to catch this shot in between swipes of the windshield wipers.
The above transformation was achieved by cropping, removing the telephone pole and wires, the addition of one of my Pixel Dust textures, the application of some Photoshop Filters and finally, a Levels Adjustment.
Here the sooc is cropped differently, a tree applied with a Brush, and a different texture applied and blended.
Another crop, a different tree Brush and a different texture that adds background color and a Blend Mode that casts the old structure in a silhouette.
Same crop and texture as the previous edit, but here more tree Brushes have been added and the texture tweaked for more intensity in a different Blending Mode.
If you are interested in a freebie texture,
there is one waiting for you at my other blog Pixel Dust Photo Art.
