"Working with Textures: Turn Ho-Hum into a Work of Art"

"Working with Textures: Turn Ho-Hum into a Work of Art"

Don't delete that digital image! Do you sometimes have a shot that you really like....a subject that is hard to capture....a place you may not get to again....but it's not perfect? Turn that "almost" good shot into a work of art by utilizing textures and overlays.

Maybe it's a bird in flight – the bird looks great, but the sky is blah. Use another sky image as an overlay, or add a texture – or both! Maybe it's a nice flower shot – good color and composition, but it's not quite tack sharp. Use textures to turn it into a fine art image! Of course, you can also add textures to your best images and make them spectacular!

Textures are everywhere – there are many free and for-purchase ones online. You can create your own textures within Photoshop or from photos of everyday objects. Working with layers and blending modes, there are many things you can do to create a beautiful work of art – I'll show you how! We will also review merging images, opacity changes, and masking.

This workshop will be held on Thursday, March 24th at 7PM. To sign up, please email Joan at beadnik2@gmail.com. Please include your telephone number.

Workshops are free, but you must be a current NHCC member to attend.
