Let's play again...








I was playing again with textures....

We all know that weddings are very enjoyable events for all participants, for the wedding couple, for the guests AND also for the hard working photographer, I had a thought to play with textures on some wedding photos I made. I have chosen a texture of a sheet of music, because it matches so well happiness and the loving ambiance
of a wedding day.




This last photo is a self portrait of an older lady, like me... :) I think the chosen texture overlay is perfect to hide
unwanted wrinkles in a women face....LOL...

I'm so pleased that you are continuing to experiment with textures. Of this group, #2 and #4 are my favorites.

Remember, you can play with the "eraser" tool and gently remove some of the texture layer to make the texture more subtle in places. That's fun to explore as well. I start with a fairly low opacity to make the changes subtle and keep playing. It's a little like painting......

Thank you very much for your support, Sue, very much appreciated. You're my mentor and thanks for the new tips. :)

I really like the music over the photos. I especially like the first one. To me the monotone seems to work better with the music overlay. The last picture reminds me of a photo of a rock star from the psychedelic era.

The textures are excellent. The 2nd one - I think - is my favorite of the bunch. Really wonderful!!!

Susanne49 said...

Hi Richie,

Susanne49 said...

Thank you Marcie! These are all experiments that are still in begin of an evolution - I will be better...! :)

Susanne, excellent idea for a texture. I will keep in mind, and I will think of you everytime I use it :). Anna :)

Anna said...

Oh btw nice self portrait, you got wrinkles, noooooooo.., you are young at heart though, that's what counts. Anna :)

Susanne49 said...

Hey Anna,

yes, if you have time in the near future to play with the computer - and not with your little sunshine - then you should really give a try to this texture "thing". It's big fun and attention! it can make you addicted too...LOL... :)

Thank you also for the nice compliment! My old heart was happy to hear that is not THAT old...LOL... you ROCK girl!!! :)

Reggina said...

music over the photos... an excelent idea. i love it!
and... a little observation... susanne, you are beautiful as your photos: in ensemble and with a powerful capability of connoting something special!

Susanne49 said...

Thank you Reggina

for your visit and for all these wonderful compliments, you made my day :)

doru said...

loved the idea, all the photos are great! just one thought - i think the music layer in the third is too "strong", try to add some transparency to it

Susanne49 said...

Hi doru,

thanks for visiting my blog and for your comment :)

Bob Johnson said...

Beautiful Susanne, love the music photos. I wish I knew more about Photshopping.

Susanne49 said...

Your knowledge is "universal" Bob,

and you know how to put motion into your beautiful photographs - I don't know anything about that... :)

Thanks for your nice comment!

I like the texture overlays very much. I know what you mean about hiding wrinkles. It's marvellous the tools that can do this in so many ways. LOL
