The word for today is smile. This is the last post as the Creativity BootCamp is finished. I've really enjoyed working with old photos and hopefully making them better. I also did a couple of still life photos which I have never done before. My "thing" now is using textures. I love them.
For this last assignment I picked a photo of my son from years ago. It was Christmas morning and he was opening his gifts. I scanned it from a slide, put a hue/saturation adjustment layer to correct skin tones, a levels adjustment layer, and used two textures by Jerry Jones of Shadowhouse Creations. The first one is translucent tone 9 at 100% and the second one is elemental grunge 5 at about 75% opacity.
